From Brian McLaren: "In the Lord's Prayer, we not only acknowledge our sins ("Forgive us our trespasses") but also our hurts ("those who trespass against us.") These days we have many songs about our sins, but few songs that acknowledge our hurts. That was my goal in this song."
From CMP: Brian McLaren was on a road Sabbatical for the first 8 months of 2016. During this time away from the grind of constant travel and preparation for live events Brian wrote, rewrote, compiled, and recorded demos (not finished studio recordings) of 21 songs. 9 of these demos are currently available here on the CMP site, and we are in the process of creating lead sheets and piano arrangements for them. If you would like to purchase this entire collection of Brian's demo's, lyrics, and some notes he wrote about each song (21 songs for $18), please email Bryan Sirchio, CMP Lead Designer, and he will send you a link you can use to purchase Brian's entire collection.
