03. Life Is A Church

Life Is A Church
by David Phelps


Watching the surf cover up my toes
Breathing the salt air from the coast
Ten years old with my eyes pressed closed
Life is a church

Remembering first love’s tender kiss
Mourning the loss of my innocence
The bittersweet taste of it on my lips

Life is a church
These are the sacraments
This is the altar
Love is the spirit
Making the blue planet turn
Life is a church


Watching my baby being born
Written all over you, pain and joy
Holding your hand, it’s a little boy


Ashes to ashes earth to earth
The preacher throws in the first handful of dirt
My little boy asks me, “Does goodbye always hurt?”

Halleluia, Halleluia, life is a church

By Marcus Hummon

Behind the Song:
"There are lessons about God and eternity all around us. This seems right since it is His creation after all. I guess the challenge is to have the ‘big-picture’ perspective of seeing how everything, including you and me, is interconnected." - David Phelps
