Last October, the imaginative team behind Worship Central convened The Gathering in Birmingham, England and recorded some of the live music enjoyed over the weekend for release this spring. Stir A Passion is the very pleasing end result, a vibrant and inspired compilation of worshipful songs that easily translate from personal to corporate use.
“Pray” is an exciting electric opener that frames the Lord’s Prayer in an compelling, mid-tempo rock setting (trust us, you’ll love it). The album’s title track is a sincere prayer for the Spirit to stir God’s people to meaningful action. “Waves” is a tender refrain that encourages listeners to create space enough to reflect on God’s presence. Finally, a fitting close is found on “Hope and Glory,” which reminds us that “Christ alone, our hope and glory, Christ alone, in You we stand.”
