A New Force

December 14, 2013

Read: Luke 2:25-35

My eyes have seen Your salvation which You have prepared before the face of all peoples. —Luke 2:30-31
Bible in a Year:
Joel 1-3; Revelation 5

When Matteo Ricci went to China in the 16th century, he took samples of religious art to illustrate the Christian story for people who had never heard it. They readily accepted portraits of Mary holding the baby Jesus, but when he produced paintings of the crucifixion and tried to explain that the God-child had come to be executed, his audience reacted with revulsion and horror. They couldn’t worship a crucified God.

As I thumb through my Christmas cards, I realize that we do much the same thing. In our celebrations and observances, we may not think about how the story that began at Bethlehem turned out at Calvary.

In Luke’s account of the Christmas story, only one person—the old man Simeon—seems to grasp the mysterious nature of what God has set in motion. “This Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against,” he told Mary, and then he made the prediction that a sword would pierce her own soul (2:34-35).

Simeon knew that though on the surface little had changed—Herod still ruled, Roman troops still occupied Israel—underneath, everything had changed. God’s promised redemption had arrived.

The cradle without the cross misses the true meaning of Christ’s birth.

Back in the days of the ol' USSR a man named Rudolph and his wife travelled to Moscow for the annual communist party meeting. Rudolph and his wife stayed in a high-class, swanky hotel in Moscow the night before the meeting. The hotel may have been a Hilton or a Motel 8. I do not know.

Anyway, the morning of the meeting Rudolph's wife woke up, went to the window and said, "Oh look! It is snowing!" Rudolph got out of bed, went to the window and said, "Oh, no, sweetheart. That is not snow. That is rain." His wife then said, "Oh, no, Rudolph, that is snow. Look at the flakes gently floating down to the ground." Rudolph replied, "No, dear. That is not snow! Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

My modesty will not let me take credit for that genius. It was stolen from the ol' Allen Funt "Candid Camera" program in the 60s!

Rudolph replied, "No, dear. That is not snow! Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!"

But tonight Mrs Rudolph is right....lots of little white things gently floating down out of the sky.

An inch so far, maybe 4-8 overnight.

Hope you guys have warmed up.

Last night I stopped by Fatima's Canteen and posted a few tunes. Among the selections were these two versions of Van Morrison's 1971 hit. As I was discussing it today, it dawned on me that most people have never heard the Alternate Take 6 from Morrison's Bang Masters album. Technically, it's an out-take, but given the right circumstances, it could have ended up on the radio with the familiar earworm lying on the cutting room floor. It got me to thinking about my collection of demos, out-takes, rarities and various live performances I've never got around to sharing at The Canteen. So this week, that's my theme for as long as it lasts.

Demos, Out-takes & Rarities

Yes, it has warmed up here. Today I bundled up with sweat pants under the jeans, put on a long-sleeved, t-shirt under the corduroy shirt and was hot all day! ;-)

Snow? Real snow? BRRRRRRRRR!

Down here when it gets down to 65 - 60 people break out the foul-weather gear!

The following Monkees session of a Neil Diamond song from 1967 featured musicians from the famous "Wrecking Crew" including Glen Campbell on acoustic guitar, Tommy Tedesco on electric, Leon Russell and Mac Rebennack (aka Dr. John) on keyboards, Joe Osborn on bass and Hal Blain on drums. At the last minute producers Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart called in percussionist Julius Wechter to add the tambourine backbeats to the Jack Nitzsche arrangement. Still not satisfied Boyce and Hart called in everyone hanging out in the studio (including Sonny Bono) to "beef-up" the backbeat with the familiar handclap version that was ultimately released.

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...did you have good and safe commutes?

It has been a busy, busy day....we got all packed up by just after 11a. They said we could go home. I made arrangements with the IT guy (all were at our location taking computers apart and packing them to take them over to the new place) to call me when he was over at the new building and I would stop by to get my badge updated to let me into the new place. Then I was off to do errands that needed done and I was hoping to get them done before the main storm hit. It was already starting to snow. 2 50# bags of cracked corn, and 1 40# bag of sunflower seeds are now home to feed ducks and birds. I have to get them out of the suburban onto a wheeled office chair and into place in the garage. I forgot to leave the wheelchair home this morning, so I had to take it out and put it back at the feed store. Then shopping for a couple things on my Mom’s list and then the call to the new office.

GUESS WHAT? Moving day is tomorrow and “someone” decided that yesterday was a good day to start the repair of the elevator. I feel really bad for the movers. And after I made three trips up the stairs and down, I am pretty crippled up....my knees and back are toast right now. Not looking forward to however long it takes to fix the elevator.

“my knees and back are toast right now.”

I know all about knee problems and have been doing a lot of reading. Tip: Dehydration makes knee problems worse.
