From Brian McLaren: "In The Great Spiritual Migration, I propose that we imagine the local congregation as a school of love. It's quite surprising how few songs we have that deepen our understanding of and commitment to the primacy of love; I hope this song can help in this regard. I also felt (aided by the strange and horrible 2016 election cycle) that we need to name greed, hate, and fear as deadly diseases of which love is the cure. People constantly sell products and win elections using the currency of greed, hated and fear; we need to expose that as a counterfeit currency and celebrate the power of love instead."
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.
