It sounds like a disease, doesn't it? And in a way, it is. This post is over three years old, but if you hate the church ditty "Gather Us In" as much as I do, you will appreciate the humour in this analysis. Here's just a taste:
The only new thing about the light in church is that light is currently provided by electricity, a relatively new development. Perhaps that’s what this song is about: it’s really a hymn to Thomas Edison. It makes sense. After all, Edison is mentioned by name exactly the same number of times as God.
