Guiding questions for Traffic Jam of Miracles

There would seem to be a two-way lack of communication in this song: We have forgotten how to pray, and God is mute.

Possibly one of the most tragic images of the Bible is of Moses standing on Mount Nevo, looking at the Promised Land he has worked so hard to reach, knowing that he himself will never arrive. A poignant blend of achievement and failure.

The song speaks of injustice, of God’s silence, and of poverty. How would you say the music – its rhythm, its harmonies, etc – is commenting on the words?

How does the image of a traffic jam of miracles strike you? Encouraging? Frustrating? Optimistic? Disappointing?
