All Creation Moaning for Redemption Blues

In the summer of 2004, we had the pleasure of volunteering at Holden Village. It's a Lutheran retreat center in the Cascade mountains of Washington state. It was a magestic place that was filled with much hiking, ecology, and theology. Plus, every night there was a community-wide worship service. But not the boring type. Often it was either a deeply spiritual contemptative service or a lively upbeat service. On one particular evening, the Luther College campus minister, Mike Blair, led an eco-justice worship service that ended with a rousing blues song called "All Creation Moaning for Redemption Blues." It's based on Romans 8:22-23; and the blues song brought the Scripture to life in whole new ways. We thought it would be worth posting just before Creation Sunday and Earth Day. Enjoy!
