A Song I Didn't Know that I Knew

When I was little, I used to love watching Davey and Goliath. Yep, a little Jewish girl watching a Christian show! But back then, I wasn't really aware that it was a Christian, or even a religious, program. To me, it was just a show about a boy with a talking dog. After all, in those days, even families on secular programs talked about God, and went to church.
Years later, when I was at camp, I went to church in the nearby village with a boy I liked. It was a Lutheran church, and the first hymn listed was one I didn't think I was familiar with: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.    But when the organist started playing, I remember thinking, "Hey! That's the music from Davey and Goliath!"
And even now, I think of A Mighty Fortress is Our God as the Davey and Goliath music!
