Loving Europe Together by loving the music of Albania

Albania. Shqipëria — Land of Eagles, but a land of music, too.
Take a glance at a snapshot of just one aspect of life in one of the European countries.

“Yes! But a land of music, too: traditional music for family celebrations; coffees and conversation over Albanian dance tracks. 

“Unexpected music: a sunny Sunday morning, the radio turned up so loud in a home the whole lane hears it. 

“Before long neighbours are out on their balconies, sharing news, laughing. I love that music creates a 'place' for connecting, for relationship. 

“But learning to go where the music is has taken time — and often I long for quiet spaces, a gentle exchange of words without straining to hear, a moment to pray quietly with someone. 

“What an amazing God we have who hears even the thoughts of our hearts — no matter where we are or which song is playing.”
