get up and walk

This song also took shape from Christ the Center (I am constantly drawing ideas from Bonhoeffer!) and a lecture.
Basically the idea is that all the gospel events took place in real time at a real place, and the disciples didn’t really know what to do with it. Even after the Resurrection, they were still going back and saying, “oh wait- when he said that he meant this.” Some of these theological concepts (such as the notion of trinity) took hundreds of years of reflecting. There had to be a discussion as to what constituted Scripture. The Creeds and Confessions were birthed out of prayer, contemplation, and discussion (and a lot of argument). Understanding takes time. Revelation often does not happen all at once.

I think that there is a lot of potential with this song. Though it is very repetitive, I think that there is a lot room to do some really cool things musically within the framework. Unfortunately, I am not a good enough musician to either play it or to even write it. That being said whenever I play or hear it, I can hear lots of other things going on.

Get Up and Walk

Get up and walk

Get up and walk

Pick up your matt

Get up and walk

You want a sideshow

I want your heart

Healing your flesh

Healing your heart

 

Get up and walk

Get up and walk

Out of the boat

Get up and walk

What is water?

What are waves?

Why do you sink?

Why are you afraid?

 

You want some teacher

You want some priest

You want something else

You don’t want me

 

Get up and walk

Get up and walk

That’s what you say

To man on the cross

Hey get down from there

I thought your work was down here

What kind of king are you

What kind of power can you use

What kind of man are you

 

Get up and walk

Get up and walk

Get up and walk

Get up and walk
