This is the title track of the eleventh studio album by the Christian rock band, Jars of Clay. The record is described as a collection of songs about community, the title of which was taken from the old Irish Proverb, "It is in the shelter of each other that the people live." Frontman Dan Haseltine
explained to Reuters: "We wanted to bring other people into the conversation. We were approaching the concept of community and shelter from our angle. But for this to be a well-rounded record, other people had to speak."
