It’s not that I’ve never viewed it before, but for some reason, a recent viewing of Trinity Network and the AEC choir singing ‘Heal Our Land’ took on a new significance for me. Although recorded many years ago, the significance of the impassioned plea by the choir and its lead singer still resonates within the very depths of my being.
The events, situations, etc, highlighted in the video, are still with us today and in many cases, they have increased with various new scenarios being added. This nation of Trinidad and Tobago is crying out under the pressure of natural and manmade disasters, events which can only be described as man’s inhumanity to man, political and industrial unrest, all resulting in despair, frustration and fear.
The song reminds us of the promises in the scriptures, that if we, the people of God humble ourselves, turn from our wicked ways, pray and seek forgiveness of our sins, He will hear from Heaven and heal our land.
