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.

A visit to the 70s today. I’ve always liked this song, but never really paid attention to the words before. While not particularly deep or profound, it’s a relatable feeling they sing about, and a good reminder about goals and our perspective on them. Plus, it’s a fun one to rock out to!
Now if you're feelin' kinda low 'bout the dues you've been paying
Future's coming much too slow
And you wanna run, but somehow you just keep on stayin'
Can't decide on which way to go
I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind
Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn't take too long
Can't cha see there'll come a day when it won't matter
Come a day when you'll be gone
Take a look ahead
Now everybody's got advice, they just keep on givin'
Doesn't mean too much to me
Lots of people out to make believe they're livin'
Can't decide who they should be
Holy One, Help me to maintain a healthy view of the present and the future.
We also lift up the following prayers shared during last Sunday's worship service:
For those directly affected by climate change right now.
Even in our separation, God, help us to feel the deep delight of your love for all. Amen.
