Foy Vance… my word.

Every single time his music does something to me. There is this thing in his music which leaves me feeling peaceful and disturbed at once. Like Gabriel and the Vagabond. There’s this beautiful story of hope in the midst of despair. Beautiful guitar music overlayed with words of challenge and hope.

It is easy to walk past people every day. To be disconnected. Thinking that their lives do not affect ours. It’s not true. There are people who are desperate for hope all around us. They’re on our doorsteps! There are so many people who are longing to be brought back to life. All it takes is a step in the right direction. This is as much a post for me as it is for you (as are all my posts, incidently). I need reminded of this regularly, because I forget it so easily.

We are called to be lovers bold in broken places, pouring ourselves out again and again until we’re called home.

We are called to gently whisper hope in the ears of vagabonds.

(Also: Supporting Foy last night was The Fortunate Sons… an amazing Glasgow band, who sound quite like the Dave Matthews Band. Check them out if you ever get the chance.)
