An international collective of troubadours, poets, rebels, provocateurs, sages, theologians, creatives and activists on the trail of the ancient Bible sayings known as ‘the beatitudes’.
Hidden in plain sight and so often ignored, even by those who call themselves followers, These words, spoken by Jesus, offer a nine-statement manifesto for a new world order. In them we hear the whispers of another world.
The project emerges in many forms. Across 3 continents, world class musicians have collaborated on a double album searching for the essence of these ‘nine beats’.
We’ve also produced a range of resources (by Mark Scandrette with Danielle Welch) and online conversations that invite individuals, groups, churches, and faith communities to experiment with the wisdom of the 9 beats way.
