Country of origin



"Building Bridges" was written about a year and a half ago, inspired by the events that happened in Charlottesville, VA on August 11th-12th 2017. Although it does not address the events directly, it touches heavily on the topic of racial reconciliation. In addition to this its focus is also broader: it hopes to invite everybody to create healthier relationships by building bridges instead of walls, as an imitation of Jesus' love for us. The original version of "Building Bridges" was 10:45 long and this is the shortened video version. The spoken word is released as an EP in it's fullness and cut into 6 shorter tracks and can be listened to on Spotify:
