“Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” Prince’s immortal words ring true and are a good reminder that we are all just out here doing our best, trying to make it to the end of the day with enough for ourselves and everyone we love.
Different people will need different things to do this, and it’s important that we be gracious in understanding that survival and flourishing will look a little different for us all. For example, this video of a pastor doing what we must call a “rap” cover of Drake’s “God’s Plan” may not be for you. That’s fine. It is for someone, and if it gets them to the end of the day with a bigger smile on their face than they would have had otherwise, then who are we to begrudge them a little joy?
Everyone’s a little different. Everyone expresses their love of hip-hop in unique ways. We’re all just trying to get through this thing called life.
