Liberated Imaginations: Kicking at the Darkness Until it Bleeds Daylight

In May, Brian Walsh was invited to give a lecture at the annual Refresh conference hosted by Wycliffe College. The conference theme this year was “Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs,” with guest speakers Marva Dawn and Graham Kendrick.

For this event Brian chose to reflect on the nature of worship that has emerged in the Wine Before Breakfast community, specifically the role of lament in our life together. So he crafted a talk that integrated music and spoken word and asked members of the Wine Before Breakfast band to help in the presentation.

We make that talk available in our resources section. An audio CD of the presentation is available from Wycliffe College, less the concluding performance of Emmylou Harris’s “The Pearl.”
