Jesus Creed in Music

posted by Scot McKnight

Aldersgate.jpgThis summer we were at Aldersgate UMC in Alexandria Virginia and we were deeply honored to hear a musical rendition of the Jesus Creed. Andreas Barrett, who wrote the song and music, now has the piece available for free streaming and I hope you stop by to listen to it.

I’ve been listening to it during my commute to school — nice way to recite the Jesus Creed.
Let me tell you how I feel when I experience things like this: honored. When it happens just before preaching, especially when you are not sure about details, can be overwhelming. That’s how I felt when I listened to the wonderful music of Andreas Barrett. 
Thanks much, brother. 
Music takes words to the next level.

Nicely done, from a composition perspective. Very helpful for keeping the mind on “these things”: true, honorable, just, pure, pleasing, commendable, excellent, worthy of praise, life in the shalom of God.

The Jesus Creed is now available on iTunes as well. Andreas and I are recording songs under the name Seven Mile Walk. Thank you for listening!

I know this is from a while back, so maybe the song isn’t available anymore- I had trouble with the link. But I did find what I hops is the song you’re referring to on iTunes, by Seven Mile Walk. I wanted to see if you had any more info about the song, where I might be able to find music for it? Our church is using the Jesus Creed materials for Lent, and I’d love to use this with the youth if not the whole congregation.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
