Live From Chicago
In 2014 the word of the day is often equality. We hear about racial, religious, and ethnic equality constantly. You can’t turn on the TV or read a newspaper with out hearing about gay rights. And that’s why I’ve always liked that Dave Matthews, a publicly pronounced atheist, chose to cover this Daniel Lanois song. The song has clear theological origins, yet Dave Matthews performs the song without a hint of sarcasm, cynicism, or derision. The lesson to be learned isn’t very deeply masked, or muddled. And if I have to spell it out, then maybe there is less hope for humanity then I thought.
