Dust to Dust – The Civil Wars

I heard a bit of this song in a commercial for the album on TV the other day. It speaks directly to the heart of all of us who. The idea that we all are okay is bizarre, at best. We hide our true self because if others knew we sinned/fell, it would be all over and we’d be alone. But in reality, we end up alone in who we really are because we hide it from those who want to love us. When we welcome people into the reality of our failures, we find they can lead us out of that darkness into joy. And we’re not alone anymore. We are together, dancing around the flames that are burning the walls we’ve built to keep them out. Listen to the song. Open your heart. Burn down the walls.
