In this final Quantum of the year we look at the 10 ‘C’s of 2021 – Countries, Climate Change, Cities, Comfort, China, Catastrophism, Cancel Culture, Children, Crying and Covid. We use my top ten Spotify songs for 2021. To each of these ten we add a verse of Scripture…and we end with my Christian song of the year – a reminder that the Church should now sing of its coming King…
The List starting with no.10 (click on the links to hear the songs). This is a list sent to me from Spotify about my most listened to tracks in 2021.

9. Climate Change – Dreams – Fleetwood Mac – Proverbs 29:18 – “Without vision the people perish”
8. Cities – Beautiful City Across the River – Dave Alvin – Hebrews 13:14 – Here we have no continuing city…but we are looking for the city that is to come
7. Comfort – Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd – Isaiah 40:1 “Comfort, comfort my people says the Lord your God ”

But my theme song for 2021 is a song that is not on Spotify – here are the St Petes congregation singing “Saviour of the World’. Let the Church now sing of its coming king….
