Reflection — August 26th
For decades I have loved the songs of Dougie MacLean – maybe it's something to do with having grown up in Perthshire, but there's a beauty and lyricism to his work which is beautifully set off by his delicate finger-picking guitar style.
I was reminded by today’s passage of his song, 'Solid Ground'. Dougie's song is about how certain places on this planet seem to have a kind of magic to them – "it's the land that is our wisdom" he writes – "you cannot own the land, the land owns you". Solomon is building the temple so long desired by the Israelites as a place for God to dwell on earth.
