Lent started Wednesday. On the count of three, let’s all consider our messy naked births, our impending deaths, the wimpy carbon-based construction of our bodies. The hapless species we belong to: getting some things right by great effort, and others by accident, at our wits end about the rest. How hard we try: let’s put all our big ideas and talents and efforts into this sack over here, and look for a minute at what’s left over. Let’s let Jesus take a look at it too; he will be kind.
This strikes me as a good Lenten song. Neilson Hubbard, from his most recent album Sing Into Me. Here’s his website: http://www.neilsonhubbard.com/
And here’s the song, which should work with Windows Media Player:Nothing Without You
One, Two, Three, Go!
