This Year

It’s the end of the church year – and what a year it’s been. This post is for the grown-ups (though Jones is really good at altering lyrics to make them child-appropriate and Zan is like the muppet Animal on the drums and Greg is playing a melodica so … there’s something for the kids here, too).

For nearly nine months, you grown-ups have been doing the impossible. When Gabriel appeared to Mary and said, “There’s this thing you need to do,” did that thing seem any less daunting them home-schooling and Working-From-Home and preparing three meals a day? You have been as holy and determined as Jesus’ mother. You have been amazing.

“This Year” is by the Durham-based but internationally-acclaimed band the Mountain Goats.
