MUSIC NOTES: 10.22.14

THE CONCERT WAS AMAZING

Thank you so much for allowing me to attend Kelsie’s Sr. Recital/Concert in Nashville. I sat there in disbelief. One of the songs she performed, “Stay,” is a song she wrote for Jordan. I just wept. Here’s a photo taken during the concert.

HER JOURNEY FROM ATHEISM TO JESUS

HBU’s Dr. Ordway is my adviser and I’ve posted news regarding her recent book before.  However, she continues to “knock it out of the ballpark” by speaking truth in love, and offering compelling evidence for Christianity being an intelligent faith.  You will enjoy this short interview.

From the interview: “Sometimes I’ll hear atheists argue that ‘you don’t have to believe in God to be a moral person.’ I agree! I know from my own experience that atheists can be moral people and do good deeds. What I couldn’t do, as an atheist, was to give a compelling reason * why * I had this moral sense, or to explain why I recognized that my efforts to be good always fell short of my ideals.”

So humbled to be a part of the MAA program at HBU.

QUOTE(s) OF THE WEEK

“Jesus had the ability to profoundly disagree with people [their lifestyles] while, simultaneously, profoundly loving and caring for them.” Pastor Pete Wilson expositing Mark 2:15-17. (Pete is the pastor of Crosspoint Community Church in Nashville, TN – this is where Kelsie attends. We enjoyed attending with her this past Sunday.)

“It is on [planet earth] that a great duty falls upon us all, to be the bearers of God’s forgiveness, to be the instrument of His love, to be active in compassion…God moves in His own mysterious ways, but a great deal of the time He moves through us. And it is because we are not [paying attention to Him] that so many do not believe in God’s love…No one is too weak, too vile, too unimportant, to be God’s instrument.” Alan Paton (1903-1988)

This quote is not a de-emphasizing of praying for the sick by Dr. Richard Ross, but rather an encouragement to think through our prayer emphases: “If, one entire Sunday, your church fasted from praying for sick people–and only prayed over current glory of Christ–wonderful or awkward?”

 

LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE:

“Why do they call it Rush Hour when nothing moves?” Robin Williams
