Happy Independence Day!

An Australian friend just emailed the following question.

4th of July
If you asked, no matter HOW politely, do think that Britain would let the US back in?

  1. The answer is no… We have literally burned that bridge.

    I am following you on Twitter and now adding your blog. I look forward to CMK 08. I am probably your only Alabama attendee. See ya there.

  2. What a good question from the Antipodes.
    I am still in the US having a holiday after NECC and enjoyed a wonderful July 4 celebration in Akron, Ohio. Went to church this morning with the family I am staying with and they mentioned on arrival that it would probably be a patriotic service. That sounded good – another cultural experience. The opening bars of the first hymn had my husband and me looking at each other. They were striking up God Save the Queen! So I opened my lungs to join in an old familiar anthem with “God save our gracious Queen…” to discover everyone else was singing “My country ’tis of thee…”
    So what is that all about? Maybe there is a hankering to return to the commonwealth 🙂
    Great service though
