He has shown all you people what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8 TNIV
About a month ago at a Sunday morning service I heard a great new worship song. Matt Lundgren, worship leader at Willow Creek taught us Love Justice. The song not only engaged me musically but moved my head and my heart. It called me to self-examination and it called me to want to live more aware of the world God has placed me in.
After the service I asked Matt to tell me about the song. Love Justice was written by Brian Wu and Matt Lundgren. They are half of Foster, a new group of worship leaders. Stephen Kelly, Thomas Egler and a diverse network of other worship leaders round out this group of gifted and Spirit led artists. They have a desire to awaken the church to compassion, mercy and justice. Love Justice is just one example of how they hope to inspire people to be agents of social change.
Foster aspires to be bridge builders in areas of culture and racial division. Their music reflects this aspiration in the multi-cultural approach of their EP, A World that Barely Breathes. They hope to inspire people to broaden their worship language. To increase their God vocabulary. And to inspire us to not just engage in a moment of worship but to live our lives as worship.
I hope you will download this song and check out Foster. If you want you can get more of their music at
