This will be a day for this equation: music+words=happy Monday! Enjoy these links and pass them along, if your little hearts desires. But most of all and as always
let LOVE fly like cRaZy
even if you aren't dressing up or filling candy bowls for festivities tonight, there are ALL kinds of opportunities and I know you know it.
- Are you a fan of Jars of Clay? Please check this out!
- If Jars of Clay isn't your cup 'o tea, you should definitely check out Neulore. I became familiar with this band and frontman Adam Agin through Brite Revolution, in its earlier days. You've GOT to check out this album right now! Here's one of the songs: [bandcamp track=3936819340 bgcol=FFFFFF linkcol=4285BB size=venti]
- Let's see... something to read. Well, on a recent road trip with a very special high schooler, she asked me, "What's this 'Lamb of God' stuff about? I mean I hear it a lot and it's in songs and I'm just wondering is it a real lamb?" LOVED the question and LOVED the fact that we had several hours to sort it out. At the end, I said, "I know I'm getting worked up about this, but it's only the beginning - there are SO many ways the Bible speaks that we gloss over! There are all sorts of prophecies in the OT that are later fulfilled in the NT that are simply MARVELOUS. Here is a great list from Peter Cockrell's blog (he actually got it from Dane Ortlund if you want to re-trace the internet steps). CHECK IT OUT!
- Have you ever heard of International Justice Mission? Well, you should hear about them. Here is an interview from Qideas, "An Apologetic for Justice." That's a good place to start.
- And Can it Be? Truth, friends. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=oc3y07FWEAE#!]
- I think I've already posted this once, but I ALWAYS need the reminder. What is God sovereign over? A few countries? The weather? My family? Friends? Jobs? The beginning? The end? Evil? Good? Check out this post by Justin Taylor.
Okay, that's it for now. Enjoy!
