Who Shall Spread the Good News: As the Rain

The podcast of Who Shall Spread the Good News? ends this week with the final track, As the Rain.

In the piece The Baptismal Covenant: The Contract on the Episcopalians, we expressed the following sentiment:

…we strongly suspect that the last covenant was strongly inspired by Peter Scholtes’ 1966 song “They’ll Know We Are Christians by Our Love,” which sings of “And we ‘ll guard each man’s dignity and save each man’s pride.”  For our part we prefer Roger Smith’s “As the Rain,” which speaks of “Breaking our pride/And making us whole.”)

It has been our pleasure to present these songs to you.  The 1960’s and 1970’s posed many problems for the Anglican and Catholic worlds, but this album wasn’t one of them.
