Songs for an Easter weekend
A season of change, this time of year, no matter in what part of the world you find yourself. Also a season on holy days marking this, and calling for contemplation. Here's a song from Kathleen MacInnes, who sings in Scots Gaelic. Along with it are photographs of South Uist in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. MacInnes' song is called Oran Dhomnaill Phadraig and is a tribute to her father. Take a look at the music in the other links, below, too -- good companions all for a reflective weekend.
and you may also want to check out the current episode of Speaking of Faith, called Life, Gardening, and an Orthodox Easter. Gardening and your garden as theology, cosmology, mysticism, and all sorts of other thoughts as host Krista Tippett converses with Armenian Orthodox theologian Vigen Guorian.
