My manboy Suf closes out the program on National Public Radio's Live From Here in NYC with Chris Thile. When's the last time a public theater full of New Yorkers sang a sacred prayer to Jesus Christ in earnest solemnity? Magic.
The moment was too holy, it seems the host forewent the usual end credits to lead all in singing the hymn's fifth verse.
Who has the courage to sing of Jesus's rejection and passion in a mixed audience that would certainly include Jewish people? A prophet. A Christian trying to find his way to the Truth, and to stay in the Truth. For all of us.
