Best Ignatian Songs: One of Us

I’m in a small group for Lent in my parish, and the other night we talked about how hard it is to see Christ in other people. A woman commented that sometimes she could see Christ more easily in people who are obviously suffering than in ordinary people she encountered all the time. People who ignored her, annoyed her.  Joan Osborne sang a terrific song about that very thing–“One of Us.”

What if God was one of us?

Just a slob like one of us

Just a stranger on the bus

Tryin’ to make his way home?
