So, there is a song our highschool concert band is playing for the spring concert, and I wanted to share the story behind it (it was commissioned to tell this amazing story with the music, which it does quite well) here, because I posted it on a reply to Mum and then thought "Oh! Brotherhood, love, and fellowship... Cymbrogi Heart!" *grin* So. This is the summary; if anyone knows where to find the whole story, details an' all, that would be awesome. Erm, there's two accounts that I could find, so I'm posting both...
This account is from a sailor who was there, on the ship, and is more personally detailed, but less officially detailed.

This account is more officially detailed, but less personal.
( The Story of the Four ChaplainsCollapse )
Wow, it's been a long time since anyone posted here.
I have this link... actually, I've had it for a long time, but kept forgetting to post it here. Just had a feeling some here might enjoy it...
Beyond Personality by C. S. Lewis. The last surviving audio footage, actually.
Hope it's enjoyed.
You can call me Esther (that's my name, after all). I'm probably older than many of the people in this group, but you never can tell.
I am definitely interested in literature and celtic stuff, also scripture study and writing. There are probably some other things in there that interest me. Maybe most of the list, actually. But I can't remember the list so I'm not going to write them all down for you. When you see me post or comment you will figure out some more of my interests.
I don't really know that I'm worthy to be in this group. I only know one person so far and somewhat vaguely, but I am interested in getting to know the rest of you. The idea of writing about mutual interests is cool. That's why I'm here. I like to hear the opinions of others and reflect on them.
That's what I have to say for now.
I'm Mum's the Word, and I recognize a few of the names of members. I'm here by invitation, and honored to have been invited.
I'm likely older than most of you, but age does not necessitate wisdom, so please don't be put off by my aged-ness. After all, you're here because you love Arthurania and other ancient things, yes? I assure you, I'm quite young and sprightly compared to our subject matter!
My interests on THE LIST revolve mostly around Scripture and prayer -- and praying Scripture for various needs -- and edification. Please note that I said "interests," not "expertise," for there is always more to learn. I have much, much to learn about the other areas of discussion, so please bear with any foolish-sounding questions I might ask.
I'll tag along, reading discussions with interest and possibly participating from time to time. I may contribute my uber-sageness by responding with *hugs and brownies* -- and maybe nothing more
As for worthiness to associate with this select group, I can't claim to be worthy. But those of you who know me know that I do care about you. So if you want an official Hugger and a Baker of Brownies, I'm willing to volunteer.
As you can see by the time on this post, I'm an early riser and prefer to get to bed early, so I may not respond immediately to any late-night postings.
Hugs, brownies, and blessings,
I'll edit this later with a real intro... I know it's not urgent at the moment, but I did want to say hey. :)
First of all, I welcome any and all of you who see this group, regardless of whether you wish to join or not. My name is Kisaoda, sometimes called Cuinn, and I hope you feel compelled to stay here as one of us, the Cymbrogi.
If you do decide to stay, I ask that you introduce yourself. Tell us your name (or what you wish to go by), your main interests in regards to this group's subject matter (literature, myth, tradition, and scripture), and why you think yourself as one worthy of the title Cymbrogi ('Brother of the Heart').
Know that we are very open to whom decides to join, or else I would have made it a join by invite only. However, I can't stress that this is a group for those who have a compassion to lift up and edify others, supporting and loving their friends and confidants. If you don't have this form of compassion, or at least don't wish for it, then you won't find much joy by being here. You're not unwelcome, but it would be difficult for both you and others already here if you don't share what others here share with each other.
That being said, please feel welcome and introduce yourself away!
