A Prayer of Desmond Tutu for (American) Thanksgiving

Should Justin Trudeau have appropriated the voice of Jack Layton?

Or were both of them (consciously or not) influenced by Desmond Tutu?

A purely Canadian political contretemps, put in context by a letter to the editor in my Globe this morning -- but which led me to this marvellous music on a grey late November day. Glorious!

So much of the greatest art (music, literature, painting, sculpture, architecture . . . ) has been inspired by various world religions: and a reverent agnostic like myself will always acknowledge that.

Something for which to be grateful as we Canadians re-celebrate (American) Thanksgiving with our friends south of the border.
