ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The glory of God is the living man and the living man is the vision of God.
-St. Ireneaus of Lyons, 2nd c.

Ireneaus was combating gnosticism, the age-old myth of body/bad, soul/good. If living man is the vision of God, there's really no distinction between the two. The Scriptures tell us that we are God’s workmanship—God’s poiema, God’s poems.

When we open ourselves to the possibility that we are God’s vision and God’s poems, we become more attentive to life as a beautiful gift.

Liturgy, the word used to describe the pattern of Christian worship, is a demonstration of this gift. Liturgy is “the work of the people.” It’s sharing with others in God’s glory and God’s gift. The act of physical participation in the divine is what separates liturgy from mere ritual.

Fully Alive was recorded live on the liturgical Feast of the Annunciation, the day when Christians celebrate the angel Gabriel’s announcement to Mary that her body would bear a son. The Son is the ultimate vision of God and he is our invitation to become fully alive.

A compilation like this has been in my head and on my heart for years. It’s a live album—truly a work of the people. The songs are not final versions. My hope is that they will be adapted again and again. Thanks for listening!
