Getting Great Tunes from Pandora

February 22, 2008 Leave a comment

I’ve been up at night working on some different projects and doing some writing. While I’ve been busy I’ve really enjoyed the website Pandora is a free website that automatically creates play lists for you based on your musical interests. All you have to do is enter the name of a musician or musical style and Pandora will pull up similar artists and tracks. Check it out!

Survey Says…

October 11, 2007 Leave a comment

A friend of mine blogged the lyrics from a new song written by her husband’s former band. The guys in the band aren’t Christians but they seem to have bumped into some.

Let’s just say, they weren’t too impressed with the folks they encountered.

David Crowder Band: Remedy

October 5, 2007 Leave a comment

My wonderful wife gave me a surprise yesterday. We met in Maple Grove for dinner and she handed me the new David Crowder Band disc called Remedy. I am a huge Crowder fan and I’ve been waiting for this CD release for months. I haven’t had a great chance to listen to all the tracks but I like most of what I have heard. It seems like the Band is moving further away from the sound of some of their earlier stuff and they are incorporating a lot more electronic elements.

Check out the CD for yourself and let me know what you think.

Check Out the Music and Teachings From The Village Church

August 19, 2007 3 comments

The last couple nights I have been listening to a worship CD from The Village Church that I absolutely love. A friend of mine borrowed it to me and I don’t know if I will be able to give it back. I recommend it big time. You can go to The Village website and listen to samples of the songs online. Buy this CD. You will not be disappointed.

I also highly recommend that you download some of Matt Chandler’s teachings. I got hooked on this guy during the ‘Hebrews’ series. He’s young, funny, reformed, deep, smart, culturally savvy and passionate about Jesus.

* If anyone does actually buy the CD or download some sermons, make sure to let me know what you think!

Moved by the Hymns to Praise

August 12, 2007 2 comments

Today at church I was moved by the power of the lyrics in hymns. During a wonderful music set, we sang All Creatures of Our God and King & Come Thou Font. I love singing the hymns. The words in so many of these songs are so rich and saturated with a combination of gut level emotions and theological depth.

Here is a verse that was particularly moving to me,

O to grace how how great a debtor daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee
Prone to wander Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above

What wonderful words! These are lyrics that grab my soul and speak the truth of what I experience in my deepest parts. Combined with a beautiful use of instruments I was stirred to praise God today in a way I hadn’t for the last couple weeks.
