We are one tonight and we’re singing it out

I’ve been watching and listening to this Switchfoot video today for the first time in a while: “We Are One Tonight”




This is still one of my favourite videos of all time. Used to use it in Film Studies classes for teaching editing. It provided a good opportunity to bring an element of spiritual reflection into a secular subject. 

I am struck today not just by the visual humour + skill, but also by the lyrics and how they speak to me during this strange time:

"We built these cities to stand so tall
We've lost our walls...

We are one tonight
And we're singing it out
...
And the world is flawed
But these scars will heal

I don't want to fight about it now
With the whole world upside-down

Please slow down
The stars are coming out..."

Blessings to you all. 🙏
