As we stride ever onward, now into a summer that promises to be one like we have never experienced before, we continue to take a moment each day with music. Throughout these next few months, look for some more offbeat choices, many more of your own community selections and comments, and as ever, a little injection of faith, hope, and love into your day.

The Go! Team is a delightfully unfettered band dealing in garage rock sounds. The thing about them I’ve always liked is their un-self-conscious dirtiness (in sound, not content). You can hear the fun they have playing together, and they love to just let it be what it is. The result is raw, unbridled joy, as evidenced by this song, the opening track from their brand new record. The video link here actually includes the whole album — it’s so new that this song doesn’t even have its own solo video on YouTube yet. So, you know, turn it off whenever you’re ready, but I think this is a perfect way to start a weekend! Ooh, there's a way back Ooh, if you see that When life went away It goes in waves So know this one thing Stay right here 'Cause it's coming 'Round again Life made you give in Ooh, stopped you living There's a way to climb It may take time But know this one thing Just keep on 'Cause it's coming 'Round again If you wanna let it Take the day If you wanna get it All the way
Holy One, Help me to relax and let the seasons work.
We also lift up the following prayers shared during last Sunday's worship service:
For the inequities and racism in the sports world affecting the abilities of people of color to qualify.
For the joy of seeing kids having fun at church again.
Even in our separation, God, help us to feel the deep delight of your love for all. Amen.
