I’ve been a member of Romford Salvation Army nearly all my life. I have always enjoyed being part of the musical sections, including growing up through the YP band, singing company, and various other instrumental and a cappella groups. I now continue my music ministry by playing keyboard in our worship band FulPhilled. I also occasionally bring out the euphonium and cello to play during the Christmas carolling season. I started song writing in 2018 and I love using this medium as an act of worship. I also enjoy the creative challenge and process that it brings.
This song was inspired by a member of our congregation who was talking about the Celtic concept of “the thin places” – locations that are spiritually beautiful. The place where Heaven meets earth. As the verses focus progressively on God, Jesus, and Spirit by inviting them to come to us, the song also reminds us that Heaven can meet earth right where we are if we listen to God’s voice and open our eyes to see His glory around us.
This song was based on Romford Salvation Army’s corps vision that was created under the leadership of Captains Mark and Julia Cozens in 2019: As disciples of Jesus, we will be passionate, prayerful, and led by His Spirit to deepen our relationships with Him and others, leading them to Christ.Our church will be a growing, diverse, friendly, and inclusive family, totally dependent on Christ, which serves and enhances our local community.
Although originally written for our local context, this song is a vision and prayer that I’m sure will resonate with other church communities that wish to grow together under God’s leading, with Jesus’ healing, and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
