Joseph and the Angels and Me/True Religion

Christmas Day, 2006, Dec 25
And here, on this Christmas morn, I found Leadbelly's Lyrics to the True Religion, mused by the notions of Howard and Jim of Ky on the Board trying to figure out the Magi and the Star.
Whatever happenned and however you explain it to yourself, Leadbelly got it right in The True Religion

Posted: Sun Dec 24, 2006 12:00 pm Post subject: The thing

about Joseph was, as it registered with me last Sunday at FBC, Ft. Payne Alabama, where Bobby Welch was baptized and where I sat next to Mr. Kuykendall, leader of Landmarks, the Historical Association Umbrella group for Dekalb County, Alabama; the man who was in Montgomery earlier this year to induct Ms. Weatherly into the Alabama Hall of Fame along with Virginia Durr, a Foster, the sister in law of Hugo Black; Durr who one of Al Gore's daughters has written up as one of the ten most Influential Women of the 20th Century; It was in that august setting last Sunday it registered: Joseph talked to Angels. As Randy Owen says, There are angels among us. I spoke to Kelly on Tuesday, right after I had my first sighting of my letter in the print issue of the Dec 18 Nation Magazine, on the NOv 20 Eyal Press issue. But this is about Joseph and Jesus, not about me. Sometime in 2007, Jonathan, I will tell you again about my Dad when he was pastor of the Truett Memorial Baptist Church in Hayesville, North Carolina, and his friend Guy Carter, who would ride with Dad up to revivals on Shooting Creek, in the Qualla Valley, to Shiloh and Downings Chapel Baptist Churches. Stewart Newman, who followed WA Criswell in 56 at FBC Columbia South Carolina pastror's conference came to visit once in Hayesville. And if you don't think it was a big deal what Newman said that day; then I ask you and Timothy George to get a copy of Jumpin Jim Crow and get some context. Newman was a fellow traveler with Jack Flanders, see the obit. Do you get it, Jonathan? The Angels, they just keep on comin if you have ears to hear and eyes to see. Joseph was not the only one to talk to them. Sinner that I am, I have done my talking too._________________INFORMED GADFLY Fox's Blog
