hymnia: (Songs)
Since moving to Seattle, I've taken up shape note singing, also known as Sacred Harp singing. So for this year's medley, I thought I'd post a Sacred Harp anthem:

I also wanted to link to this post on Mary Magdalene, "Apostle to the Apostles" by Rachel Held Evans:

"Far from being easily deceived, women were the first to make the connection between Christ’s teachings from Scripture and his resurrection, and the first to believe these teachings when they mattered the most. For her valor in twice sharing the good news to the skeptical male disciples, the early church honored Mary Magdalene with the title of Apostle to the Apostles."

This song is about the image of Christ triumphant in the book of Revelation, but since that's what the Resurrection foreshadows, I think it's an appropriate song for today, too.

This year's addition to the Resurrection Day medley is two famous sermons in the almost-musical style of African-American preachers and orators. The first was written by Marshall L. Shepard of Mt. Olive Baptist Church, made famous by Tony Campolo (and often incorrectly credited to him), and recited in this video by John L. Jefferson:



The second is by S. M. Lockridge of Calvary Baptist Church in San Diego, CA:



Enjoy!
