Out of Time

In case people hadn’t noticed, my post titles are often song titles or plays on song titles. My previous post title was in reference to U2’s “11 o’clock tick tock”. I thought about making up my missed post on Friday by posting a video of U2 in concert. In the end, though, I’m using REM. I’ve liked REM quite a long time, even though they didn’t make my Desert Island Discs choices, and love this video, as well as actually liking the song, which may seem odd for a Minister, but actually I find it quite a therapeutic song to listen to, especially when my faith is challenging me, when the black dog is looming large, and when I know that, in the end, my faith isn’t about religion, but about simply trusting in God.
