Hey everyone! So this incredible band is trying to release an album this year. A friend of mine approached me with the kickstarter to post and I did not expect to so genuinely enjoy this music. It’s described as “garage gospel” and they had the intentions of taking a look at social issues today mixed with the passion and despair we feel as individuals within this social climate.

Their music is just fucking beautiful. If y’all can donate, reblog, show your friends, anything. The work they have put into cultivating their sound and nourishing their art is so apparent.

Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
—  Luke 9:57-62

Just three weeks into Easter, we can feel a bit like the disciples, hiding in the closets and once again afraid. Our deepest fear is not that we are sinful and broken, but rather that God has raised a sinful and broken people to love the world. We are His people, His hands and feet in this world, called and commissioned to go out. Repent, now, again, for the millionth time, and go out from here and be a witness to His life. If we do not, no one will. Do not be afraid!
