Life together is way better then life isolated. I know, I was a hermit for two years. Sort of. I lived 15 minutes out into the mountains west of Woodland Park, far enough to feel like it was sort of a big deal to go into town. I remember some of the best feelings I had two years into that season were driving out of my neighborhood at the invitation of friends to share a meal and play a board game, nestled in a blanket with cocoa in one hand and dice in the other, prepared to absolutely lose perspective in the safety of deep friendship…the loss of perspective was usually a direct result of one of these treasured friends doing something unforgivable on the Settlers of Catan board, haha!
Yes, these were the moments I treasured as my hermitage was winding down.
Psalm 133 says “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!” This song was written from the perspective of community, from a Psalm that is rare in it’s communal focus. The last section of the song simply says that no one is too far from the Love of God for Him to redeem and pull home.
Hope you like this crazy version. It’ll be finished and mixed for the (I know, too many records!) Buffalo album due out in December.
