Give Thanks And Praise

Today is the feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles 50 days after Jesus crucifixion - the event which founded the Christian Church.

It was also at Pentecost that King Arthur and his knights were wont to sit and wait for some unusual or miraculous ocurrence before they sat to feast.

The BBC's Sunday Worship (in Realaudio when the BBC get round to putting it up) came from the Winson Green branch of the Church of God of Prophecy. I liked the bass player and the lady who preached last.

I wonder if this is the church near Winson Green prison of which Theodore Dalrymple wrote in this wonderful piece - one of the best things he's done. Read the whole thing.
