The Party's Over

Judy Garland and Mel Tormé, 1964.

The party's over
It's time to call it a day
They've burst your pretty balloon
And taken the moon away
It's time to wind up the masquerade
Just make your mind up the piper must be paid

The party's just starting for me and my family. About to join an AMiA parish that's on fire for Jesus Christ! BB, why's the party over?

We may rejocing, dear Anon, but for many, many Anglicans and Episcopalians the Party is indeed over or at least looking like it's 4 a.m. It is good to rejoice that Jesus is Lord, that is true, but perhaps we should not forget to weep with those who mourn or care for those who are troubled, even when it's hard to do - especially when it's hard to do.

Part of putting up the video is that there are many who really think all is well - and while that often comes from the progressive side of the fence, we should also be cautious about doing the same thing.

All is not well, Anon, but Jesus is Lord.
