A New Song

“Hope is the ability to hear the music of the future;
Faith is having the courage to dance to it today.”

–Peter Kuzmic

 

“The new song never describes the world the way it now is. The new song imagines how the world will be in God’s good time to come. The new Song is aprotest against the way the world now is. The new song is refusal to accept the present world as it is, a refusal tobelieve this is right or that the present will last. The church is always at its mostdaring and risking and dangerous and free when it sings a new song. Because then it sings that the power of the gospel will not let the world finally stay as it is.”

–Walter Brueggemann
