Waking up Woke in 2019

My hero Rev George #Whitefield, an Anglican priest and revival leader in the first Great #Awakening: ”O that my words would pierce to the very soul! O that Jesus #Christ was formed in you! O that you would turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, that he might have mercy upon you! I would speak till midnight..till I could speak no more, so it might be a means to bring you to #Jesus.”

Predatory or playful?

Letter to the Editor
I enjoyed Lance Peverley’s Peace Arch News Dec 6th column “Time for one last verse as Christmas nears”. In the age of #metoo, sometimes it’s hard to tell if things are merely playful or actually predatory. Is the musically endearing ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ a date rape anthem? As a social Worker and Anglican priest, I have worked with many victims of sexual abuse and/or harassment. How many times does a person (Mouse in the score) need to say no to Wolf (the man in the score who kept removing her jacket & hat)? Does the line ‘ what is in this drink’ hint at a mickey, a date rape drug? I welcome a thoughtful non-polarized discussion as people once listen again during this Christmas season to these complicated lyrics.
