From Frou Frou’s 2002 Details album comes “Let Go,” a beautiful/enchanting/hypnotic meditation on one of the main themes discussed on this blog: the idea that (the Christian) life is primarily about death and resurrection, rather than human striving, growth through effort, or moral improvement via sheer determination. The chorus goes like this:

So, let go, let go/Jump in/Oh well, what you waiting for?/It’s all right/’Cause there’s beauty in the breakdown.

You may have heard it expressed like this:

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit (John 12:24).
