Within the Christian tradition, we have largely abandoned expressions of Lament and of quiet reflection, and willingly become entrapped in happy-clappy, feel-good, self-centredness, self-medicating muzak. The "me me me" of modern worship music leaves me cold. It doesn't express how I feel, certainly not in the way Audrey Assad does on "Fortunate Fall", an album of powerful spirituality.
“Fortunate Fall" is an album I have taken great comfort in lately, Assad sings for all those whose experience is less than rosy. And for that I am grateful, glad to know there are others of similar mind.
