One of my Facebook contacts pointed out these lyrics from David Bowie’s last album:

I can’t answer why
Just go with me
I’m-a take you home
Take your passport and shoes
And your sedatives, boo
You’re a flash in the pan
I’m the Great I Am

“This is David telling us what God is telling him. He’s going to die, he’s a flash in the pan and whether he believes it or not He’s the Great I Am.”

Bowie often struggled with believing in Jesus, with trying to make sense of it in his world.

We’re told we work out our faith with fear and trembling. Here’s praying that Jesus did take him home and we’ll see (and hear) him again in Heaven.
