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.
Over the coming weeks, leading to the 10/5 release of The Shelter, we will be sharing more about the songs from the album. This week, we share thoughts on track 1, "Small Rebellions."
Charlie: May our small, daily protests to the chaos define us as those who choose love over fear and judgment. A prophetic song of hope paired with action.
Dan: Any act that fights against isolation is the greatest form of counterculture. The greatest risks we take are the ones that prove we are implicated in each others stories.
Stephen: This song celebrates the courage it takes as a community to change the lives of those around us with a subversive love.
Matthew: For those willing to adventure into the confinements of intentional relationship will find a richness missing from even the most charmed of lives.
