Thursday is for Defending Marriage in the Way We Should Have All Along
A couple of days ago Scott Wesley Brown posted a link to Noel “Paul” Stookey’s classic Wedding Song (There is Love). The link that Scott put up was a bit scratchy so I went searching for a better recording and found “a mistake.” A wonderful mistake.
In 2011, a guy by the name of “attaremad” put the original recording up under the name of Gordon Lightfoot! I gave it a listen and immediately thought, “That doesn’t sound like Gordon Lightfoot.” Dropping down to the comments, I read the comment of Pete Moss, posted just two weeks ago. Pete gave the back story on the song’s composition.
Me finding the back story on the song was a mistake, but the beauty and truth revealed in the story and the song are timeless.
