Song Of The Soul
Song of the Soul invites you to a soul-level encounter. Music has the ability to proclaim the soul's language beyond what mere words can speak. That's what we seek as we invite our guests to share their Song of the Soul. You will hear the music that has charted the steps of their spiritual journey, that has provided a touchstone in the soul's dark night, and sung the hearts awe and joy when come to the Light. As you listen to Song of the Soul, you are both witness and companion to our guest's spiritual path and sacred testimony.

Song of the Soul guests provide about 25 minutes of the music that speaks of their spiritual path, beliefs or journey, and Mark Helpsmeet explores with them the relevance and meaning of this music to their experience. Some guests are musicians, perhaps sharing their own music, but most guests are simply sharing music they've been impacted by, written and performed by others.

The theme song for this program is by Cris Williamson and is called Song of the Soul. Please check out the wealth of great music Cris has gifted to the world.

Light Hands, Feet of Clay (Street) - Richard Wiegel

Past/current religious/spiritual influences:
Catholic, Non-affiliated
 
Richard Wiegel has spent a full lifetime earning a living through making music, which might be the dream, but seldom the actuality of the dreams of a small-town boy. Roots rock is his central thing, although sometimes his style of music might be called Americana, and he can definitely throw in a ragtime and a blues and all kinds of country. Though he's often a solo act, a fair amount of his music was recorded with a group called The Midwesterners. He's a talented guy, been with a couple dozen bands, out-lived them all!  [ More... ]    [ Excerpts ]
