Had to pop in and share my writer-friend, Jason Howard’s, essay “Touching the Divine” over at This I Believe. If you, too, think of music as not only art but also a form of worship, read on. The essay is short, and simply gorgeous. I highly suggest you listen to the podcast of him reading it in his fabulous Kentucky accent.
And be sure to check out Jason’s other work. He’s not only a writer and a Southerner with incredible stories to tell, he’s also an activist, environmentalist who’s written on topics from faith and identity, to coal mining to country music, and much more.
