Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

So what does Jerusalem actually mean? It’s a controversial hymn and has been chosen as the Team GB song for the Goal Coast Commonwealth Games 2018.

Jerusalem has some uncomfortable lyrics and Imperial overtones which has made it controversial for some in the Christian church.
