Are You Ready For What's To come?
Creed - Are You Ready
Hey, Mr. Seeker hold on to this advice
If you keep seeking you will find
Don't want to follow
Down roads been walked before
It's so hard to find unopened doors
Are you Ready?...For what's to come
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
Count down to the change in life that's soon to come
Your life has just begun
Life has just begun
(Lyrics slightly edited
I'm sure this is not everyone's taste in music, but this song could be the theme song at the first night of every Alpha. I have been involved in Alpha courses since the early nineties. The first Alpha evening, the Alpha supper, is always the beginning of a new adventure. Guests arrive, perhaps not knowing what to expect. To us, the Alpha team, we know that each guest will become a new friend. But we start off not knowing them at all, not knowing where they are in their spiritual walk, not knowing where they will be by the end of the course.
But we always look forward to what God has in store, for us and for them.
I like Creed. Their music has many Scripture-like references. Listen to, "Faceless Man," (especially from the 1:44 and the 4:15 marks), and "Higher," (especially the chorus, for example)for examples.
Are you ready for what's to come. Do you want to find out? #TryAlpha.
