Song Series #5 and #6: Sarah and No Surprises

A couple of sad songs for summer’s end. And a benediction on the cusp of fall: May your September be savory, refreshing all that needs refreshing.

PS These were recorded on an iPhone… after practicing them, oh, three times or so. It’s music for the joy of it.

Quirky Sermons #6 and #7

Just delivered a couple of new Quirky Sermons–a two-part series called Wonder & Beauty. Watch ‘em here, if you care to. 

Part One: Whale hearts, peacock mantis shrimp, morbid rumination, and the book of Job.
Part Two: Eric the Flying Man, tiny beautiful things, and the story of The Killing Machine vs. Chanel #5.

As always, I dig around in some scriptures that fascinate me, but I think these two Quirky Sermons may also work for my friends who are spiritual-but-not-religious: wonder addicts, nature-lovers, and artists of all kinds.
