Text Information:

Based on Mark 1:21–28/Luke 4:31–37, this text recalls how Jesus exorcized a demon, ponders what demons mean today, and concludes with a prayer for wholeness. From percussive opening to melodic close, the collaboratively-created tune suggests the movement from distress to healing.
