“We Resist” – An Anthem for Our Time

Resist-COVER-584x389

Movements call forth music. I have been searching for an anthem for our time, and I think I found it. “We Resist” by the incomparable Mark Miller expresses in simplicity, humility, and power what is needed for such a time as this.

“We resist. We refuse to let hatred in. We rise up. We won’t back down. We’re in this til the end. Pray for your enemies. Welcome the stranger. Show love to your neighbor. We’re in this til the end.”  – Mark Miller

UPDATE: The words and music for this song are now available for purchase at this link:  WE RESIST
