Man vs. Wild

Man vs. Wild

Sometimes life feels like a survival game played out on camera like Bear Grylls looking for berries in a barren field, or trying to build a fire with wet straw. In these moments a person either prays for a solution or a friend, or both.  

When we read the Psalms we find out we are not the first to find ourselves in a tough spot, or the first to struggle in our prayers and thoughts. One of the reason we build our music on the "heart of the Psalmist" is because this give us permission to be real. If you can be honest about your difficulties and still let your heart out to God, then maybe you, too, have the heart of the Psalmist!

The song You Will Remember reminds us that we are never alone, and we can find friendship in suffering which is much better than the unfulfilled dream of a painless life.. Listen to the song right here for free!

God’s love pursues us just like in Isaiah 49:15b–16 (NLT)

Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you! See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands. Always in my mind is a picture of Jerusalem’s walls in [your] ruins.

P.S. If you want to read the Psalm Karla referred to in this podcast episode, then go to Psalm 37 and enjoy the whole thing. She was thinking about verse 7, but the whole Psalm connects to our conversation.

There is a gap

There is a gap

Just in-between the edges of the traditional Church and the new spaces created by the missional Church is a beautiful space where amazing things are happening. In some ways this has also created a "gap" between the sound and content of mainstream music of faith, and the kind of music that we might listen do in our daily lives. We want to sing "into the gap!"

Enter TheWorship Circle has always blended a love for the family of faith with a warm welcome for those who feel marginalized and unseen, and our new concert season reflects this commitment. If this inspires you, then find out more about booking!

Maybe you have questions like:

  • How much does it cost?
  • Do I have to be an organizational leader?
  • How far ahead do we plan?
  • Should I wait on a professional to do the promotions?

The answer to all these and more are delivered as soon as you fill out the super short booking interest form here.

P.S. Look forward to unfolding this conversation about worship for those in the margins in coming episodes!

Am I really a heavenly thing?

Am I really a heavenly thing?

I often look down on myself. I know I am not supposed to, but I still do. Does this ever happen in your world?

The song Heavenly Things was written to be an antidote to a poor self view. But, do us a favor, before you listen to it you have to ask yourself this question, "Do I intend to argue with God about how he sees me, or do I want to agree with him right away?" If you want to hear us have a short chat about this struggle enjoy our new podcast! We were reading Psalm 29 in the New Living Translation when we were first inspired with the idea for the song. The album is called Down Here And Up Above and is available in our store.

We recently created a video, featuring the song Heavenly Things, from the beautiful contributions of our community. Enter The Worship Circle has always been known for collaboration and interactivity with our fans and friends. Including you--our visually creative friends--in this new video was a real treat for us!
