1. Take Me to Church – Hozier

Series:  Anthems of the age
Preacher: David Kobedi
Bible Reading: Song of Songs 7
Date: 15 January 2023

Take me to church is a popular song by Hozier that speaks to some of our deepest longing. The song is more like a church song if one does not pay much attention to the lyrics. The song was written to challenge the Catholic Church on their stance against homosexuality. The writer views sex as the ultimate form of worship where as church is a place where those with contrary views get rejected and shamed.

Does the Church teach shame? Is it a place where those with opposite world views are rejected? And does sex or human relationship give ultimate satisfaction and belonging?How does the christian message give answers to deep feeling of belonging and acceptance? Drawing contrast from what the song ‘Take me to church’, David Kobedi uses Song of Songs 7 to unpack what the bible has to say about Sex and where true satisfaction is found. Have a listen.
