SUNDAY SERMON: THIS WOMAN’S WORK by MAXWELL
This Sunday’s Sermon: It’s no secret that I’m a fan of the “cover.” In this interpretation of the Kate Bush classic, neo-soul artist Maxwell delivers a little slice of male vulnerability to a whole new demographic. For many years I believed that Maxwell was assuming a female voice in the song, figuratively. Yet, as I further examine the lyrics, I am left questioning who actually is the subject of the song – this woman? Is it the singer? A Mother? A partner? And since, it has become rather irrelevant. I see it more now as an ode to feminine strength.
Which woman’s work is giving you strength?
“I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.”
