In this message we look at the counter-cultural Spirit in behind Bob Dylan.
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind, The answer is blowin in the wind.
Bob Dylan, Blowin in the Wind
Can you find your way to where lightning is launched, or to the place from which the wind blows??
God to Job in Job 38:22, MSG
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
Jesus in John 3:8, NIV
When I was young I had this feeling that I was born very far away from where I was supposed to be, so....I'm on my way home.
Bob Dylan, No Direction Home
They tell me everything is going to be all right, but I don?t know what all right even means
Dylan in Tryin to Get to Heaven
This is the way life basically should be. Western materialistic affluence coupled with two thirds world world poverty is normal. A proliferation of cheap and useless consumer goods is normal. Environmental collapse is normal. Dedicating one?s life to economic growth is normal. People living for the weekend is normal. A throwaway society is normal. Deficit financing is normal. Rapid and greedy resource depletion is normal. But Canadian poet and songwriter Bruce Cockburn tells us at this point that the trouble with normal is that is always gets worse?.
