Miracles: Songs for the Way of Love+


In 2010, I created and printed a handset letterpress of my poem “July 28” which I composed on July 28, 2006 in the Memorial Garden of Trinity Episcopal Church, Atchison KS

Miracles: Songs for the Way of Love+

Love and Loss are most keenly felt in those closely-guarded places within us where only a few whispered words can be truly heard. These are the most intimate places within our souls where only the most trusted beloved ones are allowed to enter, it’s often found in the holy silence that comes before a tender word or kiss is offered. Miracles happen every day. As it should be, we are left speechless when we encounter such profound joy even in the midst of inexplicable grief.

I’ve come to deeply know that all I have to tell anyone about Love and Loss in tender times like these are best expressed by shared silence; or by sharing music which can go to those deepest places where I dare not go. And so, these are my Songs of the Way of Love+ They come together in one long expanded praylist or compiled by themes in nine different shorter praylists: Longing, Miracles, Truth, TruthNow, Hope, Promise, Home, Imagine, and Poetry. A link to all of the lists is posted below on my blog.

All of these anthems are offered as a salty psalter of sacred prayers. Together we sing in the sure and certain hope of God’s unwavering love for all of us. All of these lilting harmonies are offered up for all of our dearest loves who are no longer at our sides. We too can rest in trusting that we are One in our deepest yearnings to be closer to our truest source of Love, in Christ and in each other.
