‘God is underemployed’

I’ve always liked Sinead O’Connor. No doubt she and I would have some differences of opinion about particulars of theology but my impression has always been that she’s immensely earnest in her search for the God that isn’t quite within her grasp. She strikes me as a woman who the Spirit is pursuing with equal earnestness. It’s easy to lump her in with the vague religosity of others in the music business, but I don’t get that sense. There’s something intriguing about her quest that always catches me whenever I see or hear her.

There’s no rhyme or reason to this. Just my gut sense that God is doing a real work in her. Worthwhile watching how this continues. We may have some differences of opinion about particulars of theology but my guess is we would share the same love for the heart of God and I bet I would very much enjoy the conversation.

May God be with her.
