Explaining The Shelter: "Call My Name"

As we prepare for the October 5 release of The Shelter, we are sharing specific thoughts on each song from the album. This week we share about track 2, "Call My Name."

Charlie: A prayer that we might know the value of each individual life - and our calling to value dignity and story as we bring God's hope into brokenness. 

Dan: Good community never lets us stay in its safe fold for long, rather it allows our hearts to venture out to harm's way in search of God. 

Stephen: God calling your name means being known by the creator of everything, who redeems us and everything around us in beauty. 

Matthew: To think that God knows us by name has deep and far-reaching implications. To actually hear him use it changes everything.

Okay, confess that I have only heard snippets of these songs. I am waiting to hear this album when it is released. It would seem to me that this song is a personal call to action. I am asking God to call my name. No longer am I content to sit by and let others do the work.
