Naturally today we sang another of them, one that underscores the avoidance of man for no particular reason:  God in Flesh Made Manifest.  Aside from the fact that it raises images in my mind of prime rib rather than humankind and utterly destroys the poetic rhythm of the refrain,  it reinforces the sense that the word man is the problem, not a real sense of exclusion.  Jesus is--I repeat--a man. In man, as man made manifest.

  1. I don't know that song but it sound a touch better than our selections: Go, Tell it on the Mountain, and We Three Kings. The phrase that whacked me on the head was where one of the Lo's (As in, lo and behold) was replaced with High. Wish I had a missal to quote the gem exactly. Love your mantra All worship is inadequate....
