Anyway, listen to the song, and tell us what you think about it in the comments. THEN, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org suggesting a popular song that you’d like to nominate for us to feature next Monday night. Tell us what moves you about the work from a theological or spiritual point of view, and we will publish your comments along with a link to a performance of the song. If this catches on, we’ll do it every week.
