Pew Poll: Accidentally Inspirational

There are some secular songs that can stop you in your tracks and hit you with a wave of The Divine. We asked our congregation to share some of their favorite secular songs with a spiritual side. Here’s what they said:

Capital Kings – You’ll Never Be Alone

“It gives encouragement”

Jimmie Rodgers – Kisses Sweeter Than Wine

“It explores the life cycle. [I] first heard [it] sung by Gateway Singers in S.F, 1953.”

The Byrds – Turn! Turn! Turn!

“I believe all is in God’s time. There is a reason—God’s reason!”

Savage Garden – Affirmation

“Such a beautiful song that reminds us that we’re okay, It’s okay. Whatever we’re doing or going through, we’re not alone.”

Coldplay – Yellow

“Makes me think of how much God loves us, the sacrifice of Jesus. I think of Christ singing this song to us.”

Hanson – I Was Born

“We were created with purpose. We aren’t supposed to be anyone but ourselves to fulfill that purpose.”
