Like A Song: Falling At Your Feet

The newest addition to @U2's "Like A Song" series of personal takes on U2 lyrics is a story about theodicy, forgiveness, and "Falling At Your Feet." (Actually not exactly a U2 lyric per se, but I pretty much count it as one.) The medical context of the piece and its framing as a prayer for grace in that context brought to mind something that had never occurred to me (focused as I always have been on how the words paraphrase Philippians 2), which is that "Falling at Your Feet" would have been written around the period where Bono thought he had throat cancer. Whatever the context, it is a lovely song and this is a heartfelt reflection.
