Beautiful.  Simply beautiful.

I can only imagine that those who are perturbed over the nomination of this song are okay with the big items of the day going invisible.  We are so upside down, it seems.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

More about Joni, for any unfamiliar with her story.

The movie sounds interesting. Wonder if it will make it to one of the movie channels.

 Joni's Posts, In the Media

  During the last couple of weeks, I've had to occasionally pinch myself and wonder, "Is the song I recorded 'Alone Yet Not Alone' really up for an Oscar nomination?!" Well, it turns out that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just rescinded its nomination. The board of governors felt that the songwriter (who was a former Academy governor) may have unduly influenced certain members. But amidst this wild roller coaster of a ride, "I will praise [the Lord] more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long" (Psalm 71:15).

 Aren't you glad some things don't change?! Like the higher plans of our wonderful, sovereign Lord . I am grateful that this media flurry has, no doubt, generated interest in the release of Alone yet Not Alone which will be out in theaters this June!
