Fix You

Felt very moved by the Coldplay track “Fix You” and used it tonight in our monthly Cafe Church service.
I played the song with a PowerPoint presentation of people feeling sad, miserable, tearful etc. For the middle eight – where the heavier guitars come in and before they sing “Tears streaming down your face” – I ran in a quote from Jesus: “Come to me all who are tired and burdened and I will give you rest.”
The whole thing seemed to work well and, I hope, gave people a sense of God being on their side no matter what other people may say about them.

  1. It’s been my God-track this summer…sitting on the grass at Greenbelt with a dear friend who is hugely damaged in too many ways…with Fix You coming faintly from a tent some distance away…a whispered message.
