Take a listen to one of our favorite songs we heard at the OPEN National Summit Gathering, from a group out of Seattle's EastLake Community Church. The lyrics to this song are especially great. So simple, direct and true. Love this line: "We've got no idea what we're doing." The honesty and humility of that -- wouldn't it be amazing if more Christians were saying that, versus being so addicted to their own rightness. There is so much grace...and so much power...in simply telling the truth.
The song is called "Keep Us All Close" and it goes right to the heart of all the divisions in our world today, divisions so often perpetuated by religion.
"God bless the christian, God bless the atheist
God bless the muslim, God bless the rest of us
We've got no idea what we're doing
Keep us all close, every one of us close
Don't let anyone go "
Here is what they say about themselves on their website...
"It’s probably important to start by making it clear that we are not the ones who “finally got the Bible right”. Neither do we possess the secret to life, exclusive access to GOD or “Seven Steps to Satisfaction”. We are, however, powerfully drawn to the person of Jesus, his teaching and even more so, his life. So we are experimenting, and failing, and building a community that collectively follows his Way; hoping, trusting and even doubting that it might seed something beautiful in the world. Namely; full and abundant life for all creation. We think the TRUTH about LIFE may just be LOVE and LOVE may just be the WAY. "
