A Prayer of Desmond Tutu for (American) Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 28, 2013

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.
