As part of the team at MC Eastern Canada's recent pastors, leaders and congregational leaders event, [Bryan Moyer Suderman] described how a Bible story often spawns a song for him as he asks "open toward" questions of the text. These questions get at the feelings, thoughts and motives of the characters in the story. As an example he sang the twin songs from Detectives of Divinity, "Take Heart" and "Jesus, Son of David," both about the blind man from the Mark 10 story of the blind man in Jericho. The songs explore the blind man's thoughts and feelings and then effectively turn these over to the singers who in their own ways are blind and calling out to Jesus.
