The Coventry and Canterbury Choirs of All Saints Church, Pasadena CA James Walker, conductor
Send Me Anywhere for a cappella choir was composed for the Canterbury Choir of All Saints Church, Pasadena in 2006. The text is by biblical scholar and author John Shelby Spong. It is a short blessing, which reads, “Send me anywhere You would have me go, only go there with me. Place upon me any burden You desire, only stand by me to sustain me. Break any tie that binds me, except the tie that binds me to You. Be with me this day and always. Amen.” This blessing was introduced to me by one of our priests at All Saints Church, Rev. Susan Russell.
