Bruce Springsteen

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Entertainer Bruce Springsteen’s music has always dignified the ordinary circumstances of life. He told The New York Times, “I felt that I saw a nobility in people. Not the kind you read in the storybooks, but the kind where people go to work every day, they come home every day, and dinner’s on the table every day. There’s people doing this in little ways every day all the time. These are the people that I want to write about. That’s what moves me. That’s what makes me want to sing my song.”

Bruce Springsteen captures for me the value of the things we do every day.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. The nobility of going about our ordinary routines with dignity and grace is a big part of the high calling of our daily work.

For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."

(2 Cor. 6:16b)
