No longer stuck in the middle with you

Apparently Gerry Rafferty passed away yesterday (brief story here). One of the songs he wrote, while with the band Stealers Wheel, has always been sort of a background track playing in my head. 'Stuck in the Middle With You' is not only a really cool song (with a great video of it on youtube, HERE), but I've always felt it sort of described my place in ministry: too religious for the secular, and too secular for the religious. Which is fine with me. I prefer to be right in between - stuck in the middle with you. Anyway, as a salute to Gerry, I listened to some of his music yesterday.
