The walls are closing in!

7 Mar

Today I have been reminded of some lyrics I wrote a number of years ago now. I was sitting in a church service and found myself more and more frustrated by the environment and the tone of the preacher.

Why these walls?

Who are they here for?

Our benefit?

Do they provide comfort?

Do they keep others at bay?

These walls, banners, lights

Safety!

Yet you are not safe

You break down walls

You didn’t sit and wait

You call people to leave, to sell everything

To Go

Go

Active, Participative, Not Static, Not Passive

Remind us Lord

Call us back

Send us

Break us

Scare us

Surprise us

The Church doesn’t have walls

But hell we’ve tried
