On That Morning

The Next Step Podcast
Season 1: When from Death I’m Free
Episode 2: “On That Morning”
Date: 04 March 2020
Guest: Singer/songwriter Kip Fox, www.kipfox.com

In this episode of the Next Step Podcast, nationally recognized singer/songwriter Kip Fox and author Justin Rossow talk about the music, lyrics, and theology of “On That Morning,” the hymn for the second chapter of the When from Death I’m Free hymn journal for Holy Week.

Kip and Justin read the Scripture verse and devotion for chapter 2 in the book and then continue the discussion, touching on the creative process, the benefits of using a hymn-like setting for modern song writing, and the future of this particular piece of music. The speakers also touch on importance of the resurrection and the invitation to take your fear of failure to the Jesus who knew total failure and yet won the victory, for you.

You can take your fear of failure to Jesus and leave it with Him.
When you get rid of the fear, you create a space for joy

“The Resurrection of Christ: Its Importance in the History of the Church” by David Maxwell is a scholarly article that explores different ways the Scriptures and the Church have talked about the significance of Easter, including the “Stomping Narrative” grounded in Genesis 3, where the death of Jesus is the victory of the Snake, and the resurrection of Jesus is the victory on the Seed of the Woman. You can find Maxwell’s article in this issue of the Concordia Journal.
