This week’s Homegrown Worship release – Pure – is unapologetically poptastic and radio-friendly.
Bristol based worship leader Esther Sardar joins vocalist Andy Baker to delivering a song that tackles issues of the heart. Drums and bass that drive the groove sit happily alongside the wash of hammond organ and electric guitar with backing vocals that are expressive and burst into life in the chorus.
The story behind the the song…
How can we remain pure in a world driven by greed, sex and power?
I believe that our relationship with God suffers when we treat purity as a ‘would be nice’ endeavour. God still loves us whilst we maintain dirty habits and filthy attitudes, however we miss out on the freedom that comes with cleansing our hearts and minds of all the mess.
