the church is on the rise – louie giglio

logo_splash_black_greyhere’s a monday morning quote for you…this is Louie Giglio talking about the sixsteps record label (tomlin, crowder, hall, redman) – he’s talking about the success of the record label but he puts things into perspective pretty well here…

“There is something I am confident of,” declares Louie Giglio, “That the Church that Christ is building worldwide is on the rise. The whole Christian record industry could vanish, yet the Church will prevail and prosper. So I think our future is in being aligned with his movement, not ours, and in being linked to the process of building up the Church versus growing a label. After all, our songs are for that very Bride, designed to give voice to a new generation wanting to reach for God and stake their hearts on something greater than themselves. We will continue to work hard to restore, expand, create, and modify our approaches to delivering music to every listener on the planet, but we are hopeful because we are a part of an expanding Kingdom, not a shrinking industry. It’s a tough time to be building a label, but a great time (maybe the best time ever) to be building the Kingdom of God.”

Justin Cofield Band – Jon Foreman cover of White As Snow

The Justin Cofield Band just released a 4 song EP called King of Glory.albumcover

Our friend Kyle Lent is the guitarist in the band, he’s amazing.  Kyle recorded and mixed the EP in his studio.  The song really builds, about 5 minutes into the song there is a beautiful electric guitar part where Kyle used a bow on his electric in the vein of Sigur Ros.  If you like Jon Foreman, you’ve got to check out this version of his original.

The whole EP is great, you can download it for $4 on their website or wait until December and it’ll be on Itunes.

Groupness – homeless redefining community

I met Herman today during lunch.  We had a good time reconnecting.  Today was a good day for him…his mind was very clear.  We started talking about the money I have stored away for him – and how I feel bad that we haven’t found a good way to spend it on him.  He told me to keep the money for now, and that it was better for me to hold on to it until he gets his apartment.  I can tell he trusts me.

The good news is that Herman is next on the list to get an apartment through the agency he’s working with.  Please pray that something opens up soon.  He’s been on the waiting list for over 2 years and he’s getting close.300px-wilmingtonstation

Herman started talking about a little group of homeless friends that spend nights together in the Wilmington Train station (pictured above) – from about 7:30 PM to around 6 AM…Hollywood, Hum’bird, Angel, Herman and another “old mama”.

He was talking about how they have “groupness“.

I said, “oh you mean you have community?”

He said, “No, groupness…you know – we look out for each other.”

I said, “Oh yeah, groupness

There you go, a new vocab word…

n.   Slang

  1. a social group of 5 people or less whose members are unrelated but reside in a specific locality, share food and blankets, and often have a common heritage, and who look out for each other…

I'm a family man at heart. I admit my world revolves around my wife Libby and our 3 hooligans...Eli, Eden and Silas. They are easy to love. I'm trying to learn to love the rest of you. I also like to ask questions.
