What hymn would better serve us as an anthem? Requested by “thewhiterabbit,” A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, by Martin Luther. YouTube doesn’t tell us who’s singing this; but I thought I recognized the walls and towers in the picture: “Those are the walls of Avila,” I mused, dredging up a memory from high school Spanish. And when I checked… that’s what they are, all right.
But the fortress that we sing of will never grow old.
