This speaks for itself…. There is something powerful about music. It connects on a deep level and brings us to life in ways nothing else can. How are we using the power of music to connect and stir people to life?
“The Shot” “The Jacket” And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, tgiving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17 (ESV) Gotta love Bubba Watson. Fellow Bulldog. More significantly, fellow brother in Christ. This guy can’t stop talking about His Savior (insert Masters cliché […]
Here’s a new song off of John Mark McMillan’s latest album Economy. We first heard this song at Vinyl, a small bar in Atlanta… although some guy in the audience turned the chorus into the song that never ends at the set’s close… That over-zealous fan almost ruined this song for me, to be honest. […]
This guy continues to floor me with his passion, depth, and humility. Being deeply entrenched in the Bible Belt and Mega-churches for most of my life (with a brief stint as a sort of hippie) the way most people talk about faith, gets hung up on using the “right” words or checking off a list […]
I was excited to finally receive a late Christmas gift in the mail… Listener’s Wooden Heart album on vinyl + digital download… (if you like these videos, pick up a copy of this album). I admit, I wasn’t on board when I first heard this guy years ago on a rickety wooden stage on a […]
PROOF that effective communication and creativity don’t require huge budgets – just great ideas. Don’t think these are great? Ask yourself this: How many sermon illustrations do you remember? How many do you remember from 5 or 10 years ago? How many do you know from a church you’ve probably never visited or maybe even […]
Get this album for FREE (read about it here) and watch an incredible performance here.
10 minutes… another Chan video… but I was floored by the humility and urgency in reflecting on hell and God’s Word. (Check out Are We The Eternal Exception? for thoughts on “objections” to hell or Jesus, Twitter, and The Way and Do We Appeal to the Flesh in Faith? for more videos from Chan.) “I’m […]
Seryn. Think Anathallo from Texas. …Sufjan, Sigur Ros, The Low Anthem, Mumford & Sons, even Guster… BUT, here’s the kicker, all in worship. Seryn is hands down the best thing to come out of the Texas Indie scene since Explosions In The Sky. The closest comparisons would be hints of Josh Garrels or Gungor’s eclectic […]
Francis Chan takes a break during his video shoot with BluefishTV to share his reflections on the intense faith and sacrificial life of Believers. Take a minute to consider God’s call on His Church around the world and in America. Is there any difference in what is expected of people in the West and in […]
HE IS ALIVE! The resurrection is not just a historical fact, theological truth, or future promise. It is a present reality. It is more than mere doctrine, it is definitive. This is the core of our life as a Christ-followers: New Life. Abundant and Eternal. We worship the resurrected Son of God. And He has […]
“God is dead.” Nietzsche penned his infamous 3-word sentence almost 130 years ago. What he meant was that religious belief in God no longer had a place in society – we didn’t need Him anymore. Or at least, mankind did not live in recognition of a God from whom absolute morality and justice was found. […]
Death In His Grave Performance from Christopher & Nathaniel Calnin on Vimeo. I’m especially excited about this Good Friday. Amanda and I are meeting her brother and his girlfriend for Secret Church tonight at Brook Hills. What an incredible time to focus on Crucifixion, Salvation, and the Glory of God. Intense time in God’s Word […]
So, it wasn’t until the last couple of years that I knew what “Maundy” Thursday even meant. It comes from the Latin word for “Commandment.” So Commandment Thursday…. What is that all about? And what does it have to do with Easter Week? (Maybe you already know this – but it was a big deal […]
This is worth spending our lives on. This goal. This God. David’s second book is about to release: Radical Together: Unleashing the People of God for the Purpose of God For anyone who has misunderstood or worried that others might misunderstand where David / Radical is “coming from,” (you can read my own confession and […]
That’s your foreign language lesson for the day. How many Finnish words do you know? Probably one. Now. I can’t remember the last time I was so floored artistically and uplifted spiritually as when I was introduced to the music of Josh Garrels. Truly unique, but the best I could put it is think: the […]
So apparently he wasn’t playing devil’s advocate as I hoped in my last post. An MSNBC interview speaks for itself. Bell vs. Bashir in a one-sided battle for eternity and coherency.
This clip from The Colbert Report owned me… “reporting” on Christmas & charity. Colbert’s over-the-top satire speaks louder and more directly than most sermons. Sometimes it takes a comedian to say the things the rest of us are scared to admit. Watch it to the end and tell me his conclusion doesn’t leave your mouth […]
