It’s Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’

It’s Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’. It was Friday, and my Jesus is dead on a tree. But that’s Friday, and Sunday’s a comin’. Friday, Mary’s crying her eyes out, the disciples are running in every direction like sheep without a shepherd. But that’s Friday, and Sunday’s a comin’. Friday, some are looking at the world and saying, “As things have been, so they shall be. You can’t change nothing in this world! You can’t change nothing in this world!” But they didn’t know that it was only Friday, and Sunday’s a comin’. Friday, them forces that oppress the poor and keep people down, them forces that destroy people, the forces in control now, them forces that are gonna rule, they don’t know it’s only Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’. Friday, people are saying, “Darkness is gonna rule the world, sadness is gonna be everywhere,” but they don’t know it’s only Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’. Even though this world is rotten, as it is right now, we know it’s only Friday. But Sunday’s a comin’.

This is just a tidbit of a sermon by Tony Campolo my Dad would play this sermon over and over again as we geared up for Easter and Good Friday. He even memorized this portion of the sermon. Now every Good Friday I think of this sermons title. "It’s Friday, but Sunday’s a comin’"

Thinking of Easter Sunday, (which, we are postponing our celebration
until April 6th because of our recent move.) We are trying to collect a few favorite Easter songs to play on our computer. My favorite is "Worthy is the Lamb" Do you have any favorites?

"Up from the grave He arose!!!!" It's one of mine and Erin's favorites. I guess officially it's called "He arose."
