Music:Wow #1s: 31 of the Greatest Christian Music Hits Ever (disc 2)
"A traveler is far away from home..."
As I may have mentioned, I've been listening to a bunch of Christian rock/pop recently, and one that played tonight caused me to sit up and take notice. It opens, "It's crowded in worship today," and I was like, "Really? What church do you go to?" As it progressed, I was like, "Really? Do conservative evangelicals listen to this group? 'Cause I wish more would." Okay, okay, it's not super liberal progressive inclusive, but I really like:
But if we are the body Why aren't His arms reaching? Why aren't His hands healing?
It's crowded in worship today As she slips in trying to fade into the faces The girls teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know Farther than they know
Chorus: But if we are the body Why aren't His arms reaching? Why aren't His hands healing? Why aren't His words teaching? And if we are the body Why aren't His feet going? Why is His love not showing them there is a way? There is a way
A traveler is far away from home He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row The weight of their judgmental glances Tells him that his chances are better out on the road
Jesus paid much too high a price For us to pick and choose who should come And we are the body of Christ
