What if Jesus Comes Back Like That?

As follow up to my previous post, looking at the fact that in the face of the immigrant, the migrant, the refugee, and the displaced person we are called to see the face of God, I thought I would share a kind of dated country song which emphasizes the call of Matthew 25:

A great song not as much from the south, but from British song-writer Sydney Carter, is this hymn, which emphasizes that this call of God transcends our creeds and is to people of all faith and even, of no faith, yet people of good will:

Let’s embrace this call particularly in our embrace of immigrants and refugees, but also with all pushed to the fringes in our communities.


Your progressive redneck preacher,
