Today’s song is “The Gentle Healer” by Michael Card. Simple. It is a song that takes me into the story, sweeping me off my mental feet, painting images in my mind of gospel scenes. The video is lacking, as it shows rather mono-cultural anglo-centered western art depictions of Jesus. In particular when juxtaposed against such a full song. As you listen meditate upon what you hear recounted, if it helps sit comfortably with your feet flat and grounded on the floor, maybe even with your eyes closed.
How do you react to this song? What gospel stories come to mind? What stories in your own life come to mind? Do you sense a connection between the gospel story and your own story as you listen?
