“What was true of an ancient community of Christian believers struggling with a powerful and appealing philosophy is also true for Christians in a postmodern context. Arguments that deconstruct the regimes of truth at work in the late modern culture of global capitalism are indispensable. So also is a deeper understanding of the counterideological force of the biblical tradition. But such arguments are no guarantee that the biblical metanarrative will not be co-opted for ideological purposes of violent exclusion, nor do arguments prove the truth of the gospel. Only the nonideological, embracing, forgiving and shalom-filled life of a dynamic Christian community formed by the story of Jesus will prove the gospel to be true and render the idolatrous alternatives fundamentally implausible.”
Brian J. Walsh, Colossians Remixed: Subverting the Empire

“A cold commodity culture in which everything is reduced to its market value will blasphemously obscure our vision that “all this earth is hallowed ground.”
Brian J. Walsh, Kicking at the Darkness: Bruce Cockburn and the Christian Imagination

“Broken Wheel” explicitly rejects any spirituality of escape. There can be no bystanders, there is none who is without sin, and there can be no averting our gaze from the curse that our sin has caused. In this song we are called to engage the world in all of its pain precisely because it is only by embracing the brokenness of creation that we can begin to affirm the possibility of change. As Walter Brueggemann has put it, “Only grief permits newness.”[293] Those who do not want the new are afraid of grief; they deny it to themselves and repress it (or ignore it) in others. But grief permits newness because grief, mourning, and tears are not expressions of powerlessness. Rather, grief functions as a radical critique of the distortedness of our own lives by bringing what is wrong to conscious awareness. “Broken Wheel” refuses to cover up and insists that we confront the brokenness, oppression, failed expectations, and empty promises of our lives. If grief permits the newness of hope, then this song gives voice to a profound hope:”
