Chicago's The Many release "feet on the ground" worship

All Belong Here

THE CHICAGO-based The Many, described as a "the house band of The Plural Guild, a diverse collective of musicians, writers and other artists creating new music and liturgy for people of faith and doubt who are trying to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly and follow the God who so loves the world," have released the album 'All Belong Here'. Said a spokesperson, "How can we lament, how can we find hope, how can we cry out to God, how can we get the courage to work for justice and peace, in the kind of world we're living in right now? A world of hatred and violence, of greed and fear, and many walls.

"Those of us who make up The Many believe we need to sing together. And we need music that's not about easy praise. Not songs about a God who only loves some of us. Not head in the clouds 'worship music' - but feet on the ground, heart in hands, scars revealed, wild and holy, liturgically-seasoned music of resistance, reconciliation and restoration. So that's what we've tried to create for this album. It's music made for people to sing with each other, in churches, in living rooms, in basements and bars...anywhere, everywhere... in spirit and in truth." CR
