Seventy Sevens – Do It For Love
Seventy Sevens – I Can’t Get Over It
Seventy Sevens – Another Nail
Seventy Sevens – Renaissance Man
Petra – Chameleon
Petra – Clean
Petra – It Is Finished
Petra – Disciple
Undercover – I Love God
Undercover – I’m Just A Man
Undercover – Darkest Hour

Here is a photo of the turntable that we mention in the podcast. Now of course it is clad with a super awesome Squire slip mat Rich brought me from Scotland, but other than that it is totally original.

Then after the podcast we play
Undercover – God Rules
God Rules is just a bit longer than 1 minute but was very powerful. I still remember seeing them live at the old Calvary Chapel on Indiana. That concert was pivotal for me.

Beauty whispers His name

Some things are just beautiful in and of themselves.  Nature, Art, Music, they all have something intrinsically in themselves that is beautiful and is capable of moving our hearts and minds.  As a tool, media is neither good nor evil, but is shaped by those who create it.  But irrespective of who creates it, and the motives they may have had, sometimes the art is just simply beautiful.  I saw this video and thought, “Man, God is so amazing to create sound in such a way that the careful attention to harmonics can evoke an emotional response,”… or something like that. :)  It is a reminder to me that everything beautiful, indeed, every good and perfect gift comes from above.  God is an amazing craftsman, the details present in His universe whisper His name.

Anyway, I wanted to share this with you.  This song has always been one of my favorites.  Because of my wife and my choral backgrounds, this presentation was particularly inspiring.

The title on YouTube doesn’t do it justice.  It is labeled “Amazing Choir uses hands to simulate storm”.  I hope you enjoy it.
