Rage and Hope for a New Year

Ouur first eGathering of the year took the theme of Rage and Hope [see review]. Hope not as wild optimism, or some future life beyond this world, but as a wilfull re-imagining of this world as it could be.

Picking up Andy’s theme from the week before  we shared Steve Earle’s prophetic song “Jerusalem”:

(There is also a very powerful version sung by Joan Baez that is worth checking out).

Steve Earle received death threats for this song for refering to Arabs as children of Abraham. Fundamentalists don’t read their bibles!
