This Eucharist is Your Eucharist

November 16, 2010

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral out in Oregon is planning a Woody Guthrie Eucharist, in which all of the music will be compositions by the great American, Depression-era folk singer. Personally, I’d take that over a “U2-charist” (something once offered out at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral–where I was ordained). The music of Bono and The Edge pales in comparison to “This Land is Your Land” and “Christ For President.” I’ve also experienced a “Godspell” Eucharist at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City–in which, as you might imagine, all the service music was drawn from the musical, “Godspell”–but Guthrie’s music is something uniquely special, in my opinion.
