"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?
***
If We Are The Body
-Casting Crowns


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

Chorus

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the body of Christ

Chorus

Jesus is the way
