We know the division, but over there at the in the midst of all the chaos, in where pain cuts a canyon in our hearts, there is a river flowing through. There is a current of love that brings refreshment, hope and comfort. There is a river there love to carry us if only we leave There is a river to take us home, to the place where we all come from, to the place of belonging to the one who made us, to a place of belonging to each other.

“I saw Jesus meet me in the wounds of my own story that I tried to hide or bury, and I experienced the kindness and empathy of God in my most painful places in a way. palpable, so these songs are written from a new place of wholeness, healing and freedom, “said Holcomb.” It’s the first record I’ve ever made that makes me want to run or dance. ! Hope this makes people want to dance for the joy of knowing they are loved. “
