Creation equality.

Lovely poem from someone who attended the Accepting Evangelicals 10th anniversary this weekend, as did I.

This ones a bit different to my usual blog posts.
I wrote a poem last night after coming back from an amazing and inspiring conference, which I’ll be posting a blog up about this evening.
But for now I thought I’d share the poem.

When man was created out of the dust and the mud
And woman soon after, Adams rib, Gods love.
And as they stood hand in hand
Man and woman, woman and man.
They were both in Gods image,
He didn’t differentiate.
He loved them the same, there was no hate.

But then sin came in, jealousy, anger.
And as people divided, one side shouted louder.
History through out repeated over and over.

People marginalised, one sided bible interpretation.
Until one voice loud enough, shouts out across the nations.
Martin Luther King, stood up and fought slavery.
A part of the bible, returned to former glory.

God…

Here are Tim’s liner notes, to give you a taste of what to expect:

Some songs you write; some songs you’re given. ‘Blues Like a Prayer’ is a song that came to me at a time when I needed a miracle and I feel it was a gift from God. The lyrics and melody came first and only afterwards did I realise I’d written a song in waltz time with a minor V chord in the chorus – very unlike me. As soon as it was finished I knew it would be the title track. I also knew it would be fantastic to have a Gospel choir singing on it and, thanks to our friends at God’s House International Centre in Bristol, that became a reality.

As with the first two CDs, this is once again a mixture of originals and re-packaged traditional Gospel Blues songs. We have ‘Jesus on the Mainline’, Blind Willie Johnson’s ‘Soul of a Man’ and ‘Motherless Children’ and a mash-up of Rev Gary Davis’ ‘Great Change’ and ‘Steppin’ Out’, as famously covered by Eric Clapton & John Mayall on the Beano album.

The originals include ‘God Meant it For Good’ a retelling of the story of Joseph complete with a Wah-Wah drenched riff, and the swinging ‘Good Woman Blues’ with lyrics from Andy, by way of Proverbs 31. ‘When You Fall’ and ‘Squeaky Clean’ were two songs I’d written some time ago and forgotten about. Fortunately, I rediscovered them in time to make it onto the CD. Finally, the Gary Moore influenced ‘Lady Gets the Blues’ is for Deb, my wife and my inspiration. ENJOY!
