Music Suggestion #1

I wanted to share some musicians or groups that I enjoy. This will be a series, so I don't bombard you all at once. The list will come in no specific order and all are Christian.

I listen to a lot of Christian music; it helps me stay focused on things that are good, noble, trustworthy, praiseworthy, excellent, etc. (Philippians 4:8) I love to wake up in the morning humming a soul-nourshing tune - even if I only remember one line! I believe feeding our minds with good music is one way the Spirit can speak to us in quiet whispers, as a tune comes to mind at a random time during the day.

Without further ado ... here's #1!

Their purpose:
Our hope is to help the church recover the tradition of putting old hymns to new music for each generation, and to enrich our worship with a huge view of God and His indelible grace.
You can read more in the "about" section on the website.

The theology woven into old hymns of the church - many I never would have heard, but for Indelible Grace - is rich and powerful. Music (while I'm not much of a musician) has always spoken to me, being one of the easiest ways for me to remember important truths or memorize scripture. May you too be blessed by the words of the saints gone before us, set to beautiful contemporary music.

BONUS: If you live in the Pittsburgh area. Matthew Smith and Indelible Grace will be performing at Murrysville Community Church on Friday, October 15 at 6pm. Tickets are $9.
