I thought I'd share these after Christmas Day (still in the liturgical season for those who note such things in that tradition), so as not to cause any damaging disturbances to anyone's Christmas plans.
My happy little hippy faith community, ecofaith, has a creative pastor, Rev Dr Jason John, who enjoys the challenge of rewording songs. So I credit him and blame him for the carols linked here: http://ecofaith.org/worship/christmas.html
Here's some highlights... to whet the appetite...
(Good King Wenceslas)
From God the universe emerged
wobbly and uneven
At first it was mighty hot
now its mostly freez‟n!
(Joy to the World)
Joy to the Lord, for living things
that swim, and crawl, and fly!
they fill the Earth with colour & song
God has declared them good (x2)
God has, God has, declared them good.
(tune: away in a manger)
The milky way is a galaxy
Where we lay our head
Here Jesus of Nazareth
Offered wine and bread.
(we wish you a merry Christmas)
“We wish you a capitalistmas,
we wish you a capitalistmas,
we wish you a capitalistmas
and a credit debt next year!
