About Our Name
Bear It No More comes from an old hymn we used to sing in church when we were kids. “My sin not in part, but the whole, was nailed to the cross and I Bear It No More” is the line specifically, and while that has some pretty serious Christian imagery the message is transcendent. We all need an escape from the guilt and shame so prevalent in our worlds. We hope to create a space in Nashville where people can get freedom from the shame of their past mistakes, to facilitate triumphs over the unfair circumstances imposed by society’s blind eye, a space where tolerance and understanding can be built amongst races, classes, and religions, all while designing and producing an incredible product people can feel good about.
... My sin, not in part, but the whole
was nailed to the cross
and I Bear It No More
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, Oh my Soul ...
Lyrics from It Is Well With My Soul by Horatio G Spafford
