Worship Leaders, We are not Rock Stars (review)

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review. The modern church is an interesting paradox. We've become cooler, more flashy, and more attractive so that those who were bored and uninterested by the…

Never Did He Fail

His cure was wide, with houses far asunder; But never did he fail, in rain or thunder, In sickness and in mischance, to visit all, The furthest in his parish, great or small, Upon his feet, with staff in hand for aid. -Chaucer, Canterbury Tales

Citizens - Made Alive

Here's a new music video for the super-catchy song "Made Alive" by the Mars Hill band, Citizens. Dig it!
