This was created as an introduction to a service or a time of gathered worship. It begins with God's call to Moses in Exodus 3, as he sees the burning bush and is told to take off his sandals because he stands on holy ground. It invites the congregation to consider how they will approach a holy God with reverence, suggesting they might want to take off their shoes, bow their head, or make another appropriate symbol. It ends with the New Testament reference from Hebrews 12, which reminds us that in the new covenant we have confidence to draw near because of what God has done in Christ, yet we still need reverence and awe before our God who is a consuming fire.
An image of a burning bush and atmospheric music aim to enhance these texts. You could segue into another song in the key of D - the hymn "Holy, Holy, Holy" or "Holy" by Brenton Brown, for example.
This was originally created for the Alternative venue at Spring Harvest 2016.
