Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace is the most popular song on Earth. It has been sung more times by more people in more languages, than any other song in the history of the planet. Amazing Grace is probably one of the best known hymns in the world today. The words tell of the grace of God - the gift of forgiveness and life that he gives to us freely. A rendition of Amazing Grace by Judy Collins went to the top of the popular music charts in the U.S. in the 1970s. It was the first and only time a spiritual song has done this. The hymn was written by John Newton, an English man who was born in 1725.(more info on Newton below) During the first 30 years of his life, Newton was certainly a miserable, unhappy, and mean person--in other words, "a wretch." As a child he was rebellious and constantly in trouble. As a young man he used profanity, drank excessively, and went through periods of violent, angry behavior. When Newton was in his early twenties, he became involved in the slave trade: living in Africa, hunting down slaves, and managing a "slave factory" (where the unfortunate captives were held for sale). Later he was the captain of a slave ship which made three voyages from Great Britain to Africa (where he loaded a cargo of slaves) and finally to America to sell them. During one voyage he cried out to God for mercy as the ship was tossed about in a storm. His ship was spared and John Newton began his walk towards Christ. He continued to be a slave trader for some years but there was a slow transformation and within the next 20 years Newton had given up this life and had become the parish priest of Olney, a village near London. Whilst here he wrote the the words to the famous hymn, Amazing Grace. (compiled from various sources on the Internet) This NEW BLUEGRASS VERSION of this Classic HYMN was produced by Shiloh Worship Music. We pray this song blesses you and draws you into His Amazing Presence. It is a bluegrass version of the tune, with Banjo,Guitar, Acoustic Bass, Mandolin and Fiddles . Vintage footage from Appalachia accompanies this traditional Bluegrass hymn VISIT OUR YouTube CHANNEL Words: John Newton (1715-1807) Music: American melody from Carrell's and Clayton's Virginia Harmony (1831) AMAZING GRACE D G D Amazing grace! How sweet the sound D A That saved a wretch like me! D G D I once was lost but now I'm found; Bm D A D Was blind, but now I see. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear And grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed! The Lord has promised good to me; His Word my hope secures. He will my shield and portion be As long as life endures. Through many dangers toils and snares I have already come. 'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far And grace will lead me home. When we've been there ten thousand years, Bright shining as the sun, We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we first begun. © 2012 Shiloh Worship Music COPY FREELY;This Music is copyrighted to prevent misuse, however,permission is granted for non-commercial copying-Radio play permitted. John Newton From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia John Newton. John Henry Newton (July 24, 1725 December 21, 1807) was a British sailor and Anglican clergyman. Starting his career at sea, at a young age, he became involved with the slave trade for a few years. After experiencing a religious conversion, he became a minister, hymn-writer, and later a prominent supporter of the abolition of slavery. He was the author of many hymns, including "Amazing Grace" and "Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken." Early life John Newton was born in Wapping, London, in 1725, the son of John Newton Sr., a shipmaster in the Mediterranean service, and Elizabeth Newton (née Seatclife), a Nonconformist Christian. His mother died of tuberculosis in July, 1732, about two weeks before his seventh birthday.[1] Two years later, he went to live in Aveley, the home of his father's new wife.[2] Newton spent two years at boarding school. At age eleven he went to sea with his father. Newton sailed six voyages before his father retired in 1742. Newton's father made plans for him to work at a sugar plantation in Jamaica. Instead, Newton signed on with a merchant ship sailing to the Mediterranean Sea. In 1743, while on the way to visit some friends, Newton was captured and pressed into the naval service by the Royal Navy. He became a midshipman aboard HMS Harwich. At one point, Newton attempted to desert and was punished in front of the crew of 350. Stripped to the waist, tied to the grating, he received a flogging of one dozen lashes, and was reduced to the rank of a common seaman.[3][unreliable source?] Following that disgrace and humiliation, Newton initially contemplated suicide.[3][unreliable source?] He recovered, both physically and mentally. Later, while Harwich was on route to India, he transferred to Pegasus, a slave ship bound for West Africa. The ship carried goods to Africa, and traded them for slaves to be shipped to England and other countries. Newton proved to be a continual problem for the crew of Pegasus. They left him in West Africa with Amos Clowe, a slave dealer. Clowe took Newton to the coast, and gave him to his wife Princess Peye, an African duchess. Newton was abused and mistreated along with her other slaves. It was this period that Newton later remembered as the time he was "once an infidel and libertine, a servant of slaves in West Africa." Early in 1748 he was rescued by a sea captain who had been asked by Newton's father to search for him. And he made it to freedom.[citation needed] In 1750 he married his childhood sweetheart in St. Margaret's Church, Rochester[4]. [edit] Spiritual conversion He sailed back to England in 1748 aboard the merchant ship Greyhound, which was carrying beeswax and dyer's wood, now referred to as camwood. During this voyage, he experienced a spiritual conversion. The ship encountered a severe storm off the coast of Donegal and almost sank. Newton awoke in the middle of the night and finally called out to God as the ship filled with water. After he called out, the cargo came out and stopped up the hole, and the ship was able to drift to safety. It was this experience which he later marked as the beginnings of his conversion to evangelical Christianity. As the ship sailed home, Newton began to read the Bible and other religious literature. By the time he reached Britain, he had accepted the doctrines of evangelical Christianity. The date was March 10, 1748, an anniversary he marked for the rest of his life. From that point on, he avoided profanity, gambling, and drinking. Although he continued to work in the slave trade, he had gained a considerable amount of sympathy for the slaves. He later said that his true conversion did not happen until some time later: "I cannot consider myself to have been a believer in the full sense of the word, until a considerable time afterwards."[5] Newton returned to Liverpool, England and, partly due to the influence of his father's friend Joseph Manesty, obtained a position as first mate aboard the slave ship Brownlow, bound for the West Indies via the coast of Guinea. During the first leg of this voyage, while in west Africa (1748–1749), Newton acknowledged the inadequacy of his spiritual life. While he was sick with a fever, he professed his full belief in Christ and asked God to take control of his destiny. He later said that this experience was his true conversion and the turning point in his spiritual life. He claimed it was the first time he felt totally at peace with God. Still, he did not renounce the slave trade until later in his life. After his return to England in 1750, he made three further voyages as captain of the slave-trading ships Duke of Argyle (1750) and African (1752–1753 and 1753–1754). H…

[BONUS] Faith + Politics Part I: Why Pro-Birth is Not Enough with Ashley Abercrombie
Thank you Newsstand Studio at 1 Rockefeller Plaza for providing a place for me to record this episode for y’all! No more Brooklyn closet recording!!! This week, we’re taking a break from the That’s What He Said series, because it has been on my heart to share resources and stories to support you in the upcoming election (on November 3, in case you need a reminder). I want to ask the hard questions and give you space to ask those hard questions to and wrestle and pray. So this week, I’m talking to repeat guest Ashley Abercrombie and we’re having an honest conversation about abortion, pro-life, and pro-birth. We are so grateful that you are listening to this conversation, even if it might make you uncomfortable. Here’s what’s been going through my mind recently: * How does our faith impact how we vote? * What does it really mean to be pro-life? * What does it mean to be a single-issue voter? * And how can I have a robust + holistic view of a candidate without getting sucked into the propaganda + emotion of it all? Why Do Women Have Abortions? * Poverty: women not having the capacity to care for both themselves and a child. * 25% of the abortions in the United States are had by married women. * Victims of domestic violence will turn to abortion when they fear bringing a child into an abusive home. * “Abortion doesn’t have a specific face.” Why Are You Anti-Abortion? * Is this something you inherited from your faith community growing up? * Is this something your parents taught you? * Is it a value you hold dear because you have researched the issue and are pro-life, pro-birth, and pro-mother? Pro-Life vs. Pro-Birth and Pro-Mother * Being pro-mother means advocating for women’s right to have a good birth experience. Simple things like having a decent maternity leave. * When we talk about pro-life, we need to be considering the full life of both the child and mother. * “We cannot just be pro-birth people, we have to be pro-life. It’s who God is.” "I do not believe that just because you are opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, a child educated, a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.” * Sister Joan Chittister, on a Bill Moyers interview in 2004 3 Assumptions Voting Pro-Life and Republican * A Republican will appoint pro-life people in the Supreme Court and thus overturn Roe v. Wade * For the last 49 years, Republicans have owned the majority in the Supreme Court, yet no overturn. * In 1992, there was an 8:1 ratio of Republicans to Democrats in the Supreme Court. When given the chance to turn down abortion, they didn’t. * Overturning Roe is the key to ending abortion * Roe decision didn’t legalize abortion * In 1776, abortion was legal everywhere in the United states * In the 1930s, doctors reported 800k legal abortions— similar to numbers to that of today * Policies of Republicans decrease abortions and Democrats increase abortions * Republicans // Pro-Life * Overturn Roe v. Wade * No taxpayer funding * Defund Planned Parenthood * Baby’s right to life * Democrats // Pro-Choice * Support Roe v. Wade * Taxpayer funding for abortions * Expand Planned Parenthood * Mother’s right to privacy Why Have Abortions Been Declining Since the 1980s? * Fewer women are facing unplanned pregnancies * Reduced teen sexual activity * More access to healthcare and contraceptives * New state restrictions (i.e. late-term abortions) * More affordable adoptions None of these things happen because of Roe v. Wade, a presidential candidate, or a Supreme Court justice. “We don’t have to agree on everything to be connected to one another.” Resources * Keep up with Ashley at org and on IG at @ashabercrombie * How To Live Authentically Without Prematurely Sharing Your Story with Ashley Abercrombie on TRC * How to Own Your Voice: A Conversation on Consent with Tiffany Bluhm on TRC * Ashley and Tiffany’s podcast episode: Why Pro-Birth Isn’t Enough Tho * My thoughts on Trump: watch this IGTV * Buy Ashley’s books Rise of the Truth Teller and Love is the Resistance. * “Policies, Persons, and Paths to Ruin” by John Piper * Further listening on evangelicals and politics on NPR * Further reading from Ashley: The Stigma and Shame of Abortion.
