- Singing Poetry~ Vulnerability that can draw us closer to Christ
Michael Hawn asks the following questions about "I Am Thankful" which I believe can help us grow closer to Christ and allow for a vulnerability that at times can come with music:
- What if the poet articulates a feeling that has been buried in the singer's soul so deeply that they do not want to uncover it?
- What if the poet's challenge is a prophetic word of God that makes us uncomfortable?
- What if singing the poet's creation offers delight, purpose, release, hope, peace or community?
