The end to our songs, our art, and our innovation is to see justice and righteousness move upon the earth like ever-flowing streams; meeting the needs of the fatherless, the orphaned, the widow, and the oppressed.

Jesus spoke in Parables! Matthew 13:34-35 gives us Jesus’ reason for using these short stories to teach truth: “Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.” In these short stories Jesus would embed truth like treasure to be found. Only those who would dig would find the true meaning hidden below the surface. In Matthew 13 is the longest ordered sequence of these stories is recorded. Jesus likens the kingdom to that of a seed, yeast, a treasure, a pearl, a net, and the law. All of the parables given have one thing in common; they refer to something that is buried deep, and something that is drawn up to new life. In his string of stories Jesus tries to tell his hearers that the Kingdom of God is like a man buried and brought back to life.
“Jesus is the exclamation point and purpose of God’s kingdom. He is our treasure."
On this album, Parables of Christ, our GCP team wrote a song for each of these parables. We strung our songs together to tell one overarching story of a girl buried alive, and then brought back to life. Enjoy this short story, Body Map, and the songs that accompany the story. They work together ultimately to help us savor and contemplate the incarnation, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ!

We Launch Ideas: We have a passion for the Kingdom of God. In his kingdom the last are first, and we prioritize the "little guy."
