Soul Food: ‘King Alfred’s War Song’

I feel the need for the spiritual nourishment that this hymn provides. If it really was written by King Alfred the Great, it comes to us from a time when it must have seemed, to many, that the light of Christianity was going to be snuffed out by violent paganism in an overwhelming host of enemies.

    You got that right. I was blessed on the way to my shopping trip this morning, before all the diffiiculty happened. At least the highway was clear.

It just filled me with joy such as I have not experienced for a long time.
