Remembering the Sermon on the Mount
A friend of mine Dave Andrews has started a project to remind Christians of the Sermon on the Mount - as a central source for Christian activism and discipleship. See his website http://wecan.be/
Getting back into memorising and reflecting on the Sermon brought back to mind Bruce Cockburn's version, that takes the form of one verse in "Shipwrecked at the Stable Door', from the Big Circumstance album.
Blessed are the poor in Spirit, Blessed are the meek, For theirs shall be the kingdom that the powermongers seek And blessed are the dead for love, and those who cry for peace, And those who love the gift of earth, may their gene pool increase.
