about

About this Album
We chose “Patiently Impatient” inspired by our Cell Multiplication Plan - “We are patiently impatient to embody what God has in mind for now.” Many of the themes of the album are around that almost paradoxical state of expectantly waiting and preparing a place for Jesus to come and live. It’s winter and cold in our region as we finished up on the final days of Advent. We’ve digitally released it the day after Christmas. We are making plans to print cds with full booklets soon. Over 50 musicians from all four of our congregations and a dozen songwriters

Why We are Trying This Experiment?
We have written over 100 songs and regularly share with people from across the world as learners. We’ve been asked by our friends outside our region for resources to use and this is part of our response. No one is making any money from our group. The writing, the performing, organizing, engineering, producing, and the mixing have all been done “in house” out of love. Our biggest expense to date has been the rent as we’ve maintained a studio space over the past year. We hope to make regular contributions to the Church’s journey in creativity and imagination, this is our second release.

Who We Are ?
Circle of Hope Audio Art is a mission team of Circle of Hope (circleofhope.net) in Philadelphia and the metro. Forming began in early 2012 when Joseph took the reins to record some of our original worship songs for training leaders and sharing more broadly. Last June we released our debut album “Resist & Restore: Spring 2013 digitally and then printed cds in December.
We are developing a missional process of writing, recording, and distributing original and transcultural worship music as a tool for training, edification, and getting Circle of Hope into new places. We are facilitating a process for creating quality audio recordings of songs that our church uses for worship as a resource for our Public Meeting Design Teams as well as other interested people. We want to distribute the recordings in a way that does not succumb to the norms of the music industry–Christian or not–but promotes Kingdom entrepreneurship and good storytelling.

Thanks to Michael Heneghan (michaelpheneghan.com) for illustrations,
Hans Dekline at Sound Bites Dog (soundbitesdog.com) for mastering, and Stephen Ardire for Hammond organ on "Show me Your way"

THANK YOU!
We are grateful for all of Creation and for this unique local expression of the church known as Circle of Hope. Thanks be to God and to the people from all four of our congregations for participating in making this recording - whether it’s playing, singing, praying, encouraging, or constructive criticism.

More Worship Resources
Most of our congregations worship in three languages each week. Much of the music does not have accessible recordings for sharing and teaching. Here are some musicians and ministries that we are connected to, trying to use their music (with permission) in a good way.
We highly recommend you check out these friends of ours.
Broken Walls brokenwalls.com Led by Jonathan Maracle (Mohawk): many of their songs are based on First Nations’ instruments, melodies, and languages worshiping Jesus.
Aradhna http:aradhnamusic.com Led by Chris Hale and Pete Hicks (born, raised, and/or trained in Nepal and India): Jesus-centered, contextually Hindustani music with Western cross-pollination.
Cheryl Bear cherylbear.com A songwriter, author, and pastor from the Nadleh Whut’en First Nation (Northern British Columbia): songs are in English First People’s languages as well as vocables.
Our worship leaders have found the work of these folks useful, too.
Heart Sounds International heart-sounds.org A worldwide hub for worship music mean for places where Christ’s followers are restricted.
Taizé Community taize.fr The monastic chants in multiple languages are really useful.
Kampala Ministry kampalaministry.wordpress.com The defunct website for a very influential resource from our Central and East African sisters and broth- ers in Uganda. They streamed music and included lyrics and translations for a few dozen songs that we have found transformative.
Soweto Gospel Choir sowetogospelchoir.com The 30+ member choir brings together elements of their South African gospel with others from the Diaspora.

Track Name: The Delaware
Close your eyes.
Listen to the breeze,
The way the wind pushes
the river to keep going.
Stillness of existence, all the details.
Can it be this simple?
Yea, there are a lot of problems breathing today,
So many.
And it can be exhausting to carry.
But maybe..
It may start simple.
To love and forgive.
Experiencing wholeness by letting go.
Listening where god is moving, and float
in the current.
Let go of expectation,
of the desire to be right,
having everything in its right place.
Let go of “you.”
This center of constant pleasure.
This ticking time bomb that restrains us from growing into newness.
Restrains us from being active fruit caring for others around us.
Am I happy now? Do I love you now?
When can I escape this so I can be filled the sandy love
that is rooted in me?

Waiting
wait.. wait, wait, wait..
In the moments of growth
In the moments of pain, discomfort,
Body disfiguration, tired anxious mind
Wait..
The hope of birth keeps smiling through
This won't be forever.

Concentrate on breath.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Concentrate on breath.. When will this end?
Rest.
Concentrate on breath. Breathe in. Breathe out.
The hills of expanding on the edge of explosion
As if blowing tight air in a closed steel ball.
Release
Over. And. Over..
Am I just a vessel to display the glory
Misery and pain waiting to be ended by mud to my eyes?
What, in 50-70 years? In the next generation?
Release.
What about me now?
Who will love me?
Who will tend my wounds?
Hold me? Protect me?
Release.
Remember the birds that neither sow nor weep
The flowers that do not labor nor spin.
Remember, remember.. anyone who loves
will be loved and be made home.
Release.
We get lost in
i
i
i
i.
Like a ball of grey, dusty gas,
Nats surrounding, marketing to us
Holding the sickles of our past
That create a black film over each beauty
of being needed, appreciated, desired, loved..
Release.
But there are flowers to the left
Blossoming.
We can't even nod to a little blessing
Swimming in our own mess, depress
Repeat
Hurting others, hurting ourselves
Repeat
Because that is somewhat controllable
Control!
Control!
Is this the rest of my life?

Let go
Open
The face of your mystery child sees you, you see for the first time.
The world. everything. disappears.
But this child.
More wild than your thoughts could have ever reached.
Wow.
