I don’t listen to music much anymore. I find it more distracting than helpful. But when I did listen, my preferences fell a bit out of mainstream. The band, One Bad Pig, proves my point. Let’s just say their music is an acquired taste. (They were an 80s, Christian, punk, screamo band – and I liked them!)
Their classic song “I Scream Sunday” is a lament over the shallowness of Sunday-only Christians, while offering hope for something more. In fact, they insist there’s something more, if only Jesus’ followers are willing to see it and embrace it – or as they say, to dream.
On many a Sunday, this song was my pre-church anthem – maybe it still is. The words draw me to God, crying with him over what is, while yearning for what can be, for what should be. For me, it’s a powerful call to repentance and an imperative push for a deeper, nonconventional commitment to the savior of the world and our life within the world he created.
Today, as “I scream Sunday,” I reject status quo religion and pursue a vibrant Jesus faith in action. Will you join me?
