Today I’m thrilled to celebrate with you the release of my new book, Searching for Sunday: Loving, Leaving, and Finding the Church. Arranged around the imagery of seven sacraments, it’s a book about all that is frustrating and beautiful and complicated about church, and I dedicated it to you, the readers of this blog, and also to my sister, Amanda Opelt, who has a special surprise for us today.

Amanda is a singer/songwriter out of Boone, North Carolina, and she’s celebrating a big day today too: the release of a new album entitled Seven Songs, which was inspired by the seven sacraments featured in Searching for Sunday.

Take a listen to the first track "Snow (Baptism)":

These songs are haunting, beautiful, and lyrically profound. Amanda and I have always been close in mind and spirit, but there were moments in listening to the first cuts of “Seven Songs” that I felt she had reached into my brain and put my best dreams into song. (The “Marriage” song will totally wreck you.) Written and recorded in the mountains of western North Carolina, the album is the effort of a community of musicians and artists seeking to creatively express the longing inherent in each of the sacraments: the hunger for new life, healing, and harvest. It’s the perfect companion to Searching for Sunday.

“Seven Songs” releases today on all major platforms including iTunes and Amazon with a suggested retail price of $6.93.
