John Brown Today
Father and Son
Show Notes

In this special Father's Day episode, Lou reflects on the example and influence of Owen Brown (1771-1856), the father of abolitionist John Brown.  From Connecticut to the Ohio wilderness in the early 19th century, father and son Brown share a common religious faith and zeal for human rights and opposition to slavery.  Special attention is paid to John Brown's 1857 autobiographical sketch of youth, and Lou offers closing Father's Day wishes with a  special closing song, "Esperando (Waiting)" composed by Hagjae Lee and performed by Epainos on their sacred music CD, Hymn Vol. 1.

Epainos is Hagjae Lee (piano), Soo Kang (oboe), and Jiwon Kim (violin)
