In the periodic series: What Can we Learn from Secular Artists?

I saw They Might Be Giants in concert recently (They are in the midst of their Flood Tour - and it was GREAT btw). I am drawn to their quircky, almost silly, yet obviously deep lyrics – as well as the talent.

It was kinda funny how one lyric (heard in the context of a small venue live concert) immediately made me think of how we put our faith into practice.

A man came up to me and said
“I’d like to change your mind
By hitting it with a rock,” he said,
“Though I am not unkind.”
We laughed at his little joke
And then I happily walked away
And hit my head on the wall of the jail
Where the two of us live today.

From Whistling in the Dark
