Be Here Now (Kyle Matthews)

For a couple of Sundays at least I have used the words “Attending to God’s Word” as a heading in the worship bulletin. I believe that the words attendance and attention probably have a common root. You may not know, but I take medication for attention deficit disorder every day. Living with ADHD means that I have more trouble than most folks being attentive … in other words, being mentally present as well as physically so. Medication helps, and I've learned some effective skills to compensate over the years.

My friend Kyle Matthews recently released a new CD. Every time a new CD of his comes out, I find that his words intersect with the struggles of my life. I'm not at liberty to share the experiences of others, but I know that I am not alone in that. This link will take you to the published lyrics of the title cut:

Be Here Now.

My sons and some of my friends tease me about my enthusiasm for Kyle's work. Please note that I gain nothing from this plug. You will find words that can heal the broken places in your soul in any of Kyle's CDs. But this most recent one is especially worth your time -- particularly if you are, or have been, in local church ministry.

That’s enough to think about for now. The peace of Christ to you.
