Matthew’s music is lovely and compelling but the podcast is more than that, listening is a holy thing.
What happens when a song writer sets themselves the challenge of writing a song from the days lectionary readings. He may be training for the priesthood but he’s also a great writer. You learn about song writing. And you learn about sacred texts. I wish he hadn’t stopped!
