This morning, with the sun emerging after an overnight rain, I swear my run felt more like church than many church services I’ve been at. My alive and energized body served as temple. The birds celebrating the ease of their post-rain worm harvest provided the worship music. Lilacs and other flowering trees blessed us with incense. And these three songs, showing up in this order in my random playlist, were more inspiration than I’ve heard in a lot of sermons. Take a moment to listen to them and see if you don’t feel something shift.
1. Wake me up, by Martn Joseph
2. Polly Come Home, by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss
3. Soul Meets Body, sung by Catie Curtis (original by Death Cab for Cutie)
