Music Monday: Ben Howard - “The Wolves”
October 7, 2013
“We lost faith in the arms of love,” Ben Howard sings in his 2011 single, “The Wolves.” A catchy tune laying out his frustration with suffering and god.
The question, “How did you lose your faith?” comes up quite often when amicably interacting with people of faith. Next time someone asks me I think my answer is going to be, “You know, it was because I care about people.” I believe this song helped me realize this about myself.
As always, if you get a chance, send your suggestions for future Music Mondays to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, leave a comment below, or @tweet us at @CFIOnCampus.
