Did you catch that logic? Are you with me?
Anyways, this time around The Vaseline's cover "Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam" caught my ear. My latent inner Mormon has some theories as to why. Thinking of Stella's post over at The Exponent, and maybe even actually thinking about Jesus for a second, the song is a good answer to the question of "How can we view and follow Jesus in a way that will actually bring about the Kingdom of Heaven on earth?" Maybe Jesus wants us to be more than Sunbeams- maybe he knows what we are made of and that's enough. He is our advocate, after all.
What this song also invokes for me a time I confessed to a guy I was dating that I didn't have very many hobbies.* He suggested that I learn how to play the accordion. This song makes me want to learn how to play the accordion. At home. In the rain.
*I know, WTF. This blog is evidence that I have tons of hobbies. But whatever.
