Create a Playlist of Hope

I’m old enough to have made mixtapes that I created for special times: summer, the beach, Christmas. This Lent has been a challenge for my word of the season: hope. So I created a Spotify playlist of songs of hope to enjoy.

Creating a Spotify playlist is very easy, if you haven’t done it before. (Especially when compared to making a mixtape back in the day.) You might want to create your own playlist for Lent.

The playlist is Songs of Hope by Karen Twinem on Spotify. It contains:

  • “Great Are You Lord” – All Sons and Daughters
  • “I’ll Take You There” – Mavis Staples
