Sunday Afternoon Music Video: Wade in the water
I love the quiet strength of this song in the hands and mouths of Sweet Honey in the Rock.
The readings this weekend at my church spoke to me of the ways in which we want to control God's actions in the world. The Israelite who complain to Moses that Medad and Eldad, John who wants to stop those who were not "officially" sent from working miracles in Jesus' name.
We can be unwelcoming, if not downright judgmental, toward those who we find doing God's name outside of our institutions and with those who are on the margins. But the prophets among us wade into the troubled waters regardless.
What challenged you in the music you sang or played this weekend? (Musically or otherwise!) Share with us in the comments.
