Inspired by the band's trip to India, Brazil and Ecuador, Share the Well explores universal Christian themes in a variety of geographies, with songs that look through the eyes of both visitor and resident. Major themes include God's all-sufficient goodness, the need for people to share what they have with each other, and the inherent dignity of the oppressed; in particular the Dalit caste of India.
