    I hope you joined in on the 17th verse of “Just as I Am.”

      I totally did… couldn’t help myself…

        I see that hand! Oh, the things I’ve suppressed.

        This was perfect in capturing the strange, sad beauty of it all.

        Sounds like we have a few things in common.

        Thanks for reading, Texas in Africa.

    Thanks for the keen insights and being a reliable pair eyes and ears on the ground. Also thank you for the smooth prose. Growing up staunchly conservative Christian myself, I know how those tunes can glue themselves to your subconscious. I left the faith only to come back later; wiser and sharper.

    Keep the content coming when you get the chance(s).

    This is exactly how I felt listening to the singing the night of January 12, as I spent the night after the earthquake in PaP also not sleeping. I too contemplated major questions of religion that I had stopped asking long ago, unable to understand how people could sing in unison when they were suffering so deeply. Thank you so much for sharing.
