Thursday November 23rd – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      several women from my church line up at PP each week to offer alternatives to women, as they arrive.
      They report a drop in traffic, just noticeable to record.
      Am really happy to hear this trend is beginning to show up on a national level.
      Will send them this link for encouragement.

    For anyone else skipping the NFL for, um, reasons, if you stream Amazon Prime, “The Pilgrims” episode of American Experience is available free with Prime membership (put “experience pilgrim” in the search it comes up first). Not perfect, but pretty durned good.

    Dmitri Hvorovstovsky, R.I.P.
    Oct 16, 1962, Krasnoyarsk, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union – Nov 22, 2017, London GB
    Perhaps the greatest baritone voice in our lifetime

      Thank you Bert D. I showed this link to an amateur singer friend and he told me that he had an argument today about whether Philippe Sly of Canada was the best, and the person he was arguing with brought up Hvorovstovsky. I had never heard of either… I appreciate learning new things at CTH. And, may the gentleman R.I.P. after a life of bringing his best gifts to the rest of us
      (P.S. The friend wanted me to listen to Philippe Sly singing Handel, “A Trumpet Shall Sound”… )

    I got into an after-Thanksgiving Day-dinner argument with a soon to be disowned semi-conservative member of the family. If he wasn’t so middle-income, he could pass for a GOPe. The discussion, over coffee and dessert, was centered around who the one person in DC is that is most detrimental to President Trump’s agenda. In my mind it was a toss-up between Mueller (who I despise) and McConnell (who has factually hindered the President’s agenda). He said it is the President himself who is his own worst enemy. I was helping to serve and I wanted to spit in his piece of pie but knew the whole family would go tilt and try to impeach ME. So I accidentally dropped his on the floor….heh-heh-heh. It was the last piece. I didn’t feel bad at all. Can I still hang out in the CTH?

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
