Songs For Today

What songs are ministering to you right now in this time of tragedy?

I’ll start…

Blessed Be Your Name – Matt Redman
We have all heard this song so many times. It seemed like there was a period of a few years where every single worship record had a cover of this song on it. But at prayer tonight, Jimmy pulled this song back out and led it as a slow song and it was still so powerful.

Amos Story – Aaron Ivey
This song is by our friend Aaron about the two children they are adopting from Haiti. They’ve been in the process for two years and their little girl Story got to come home near the end of October. But Amos is still in Haiti. We are all praying for his soon and safe arrival.

Your turn…?


Supporting Ministry In Turkey And Getting A Cool T-shirt


One of my friends is a worship pastor at my church. His name is Andy Melvin and he has a killer band and a great ministry. In fact, you should check out his last CD, The Human Engine Waits. But that’s not what this post is about.

Andy and his guys are raising funds to go do some cool ministry in the country of Turkey. One of the ways they are doing that is selling this cool T-shirt. You only have till Monday to get your order in, so I wanted to let you know. Because I don’t want you to be all sad, coming out to the fall tour and seeing my shirt and saying, wow, that’s awesome, where can I get one of those? So you can go to this website, and there you will find the email address to send your order to. No, it’s not paypal or cc online purchasing. It’s just old school awesome t-shirt buying.

Anyway, it is a great chance to support a great ministry. You’ve got two days left.
