Here is the second playlist dedicated to the “newer” Christmas songs. Last week’s focused on the birth of Christ, this week we tried to find songs that spoke about our response to this miraculous birth. We hope that you enjoy them!

Last night I re-read a post that I wrote last year. In it I finished with this. “Jesus’s descent to humanity cannot be captured in a quaint manger scene, complete with swaddling clothes, oxen and sheep. The fact that he was born in a stable is amazing, of course, but the fact that he came at all is infinitely more incredible. These…

Songs for Christmas (1) Acapella

By

With so much Christmas music to sort through, we were a little stymied on how we should organize the playlists for this month. We thought we’d begin by sharing the acapella (or mostly acapella) songs that we enjoy. We apologize for the disparity in volume levels between songs—choral recordings are generally miced differently than acapella groups. Just be quick on the volume…

Because of Thanksgiving: Spotified the former thanksgiving playlist. _________________ We thought about changing things up on you and making today’s Playlist Tuesday be “Songs About the Perichoretic Trinity” but then thought, “Wait it’s thanksgiving–we should probably do a playlist on that instead.” Actually, that’s not really what happened…but we did at least feature the Trinity in the first song! The…

Songs for Praising God (5 & 6)

By

Praising God 5 & 6 are now reinvented for Spotify. I have a favorite hymn album called “Hymns Triumphant: London Philharmonic Choir and National Philharmonic Orchestra.” The reason that I love this album so much is because my father used to play it almost every single week while I was growing up. I know those songs. I love those songs. If…

  Reposted in Spotify _________________ I am not an experiential kind of guy. When I do become emotional it is as a result of some pretty intense thinking—about God, a person (say, Liz :-), or a situation (be it good or bad). Thus, it is rare for any song to give me goosebumps or move me in a significant way…

Here are “Songs of the Cross,” now in Spotify. As I left work this evening, I was met at the door with a torrential downpour. Let me tell you, running through Niagara Falls kind of kills the mood to praise God. I have a cold, I was soaked, I was frustrated that I didn’t get more done, and was somewhat unsettled by a…

Playlist Tuesday, remastered in high-fidelity! (or not, enjoy!) Today’s playlist is somewhat low-key and is meant to be so. It is meant to furnish quiet and reflective kindling for intensive (as opposed to explosive) worship. The playlist tells the story of Christ, whose sacred head was wounded on Calvary, the ultimate gory and wonderful display of God’s love for you…

Songs About Jesus (3 & 4)

By

Recreating some playlists for you! There are many, many songs written about Jesus. We chose to group the songs in this playlist by their description of one of Jesus’s many roles. His majesty, power and love can be traced through a number of the songs. We hope that they will encourage your heart and remind you of our great savior!…

Here are two more playlists, recapitulated:-) ____________________________ I was reflecting today on the gift of salvation. As I watched Brenn and Jack play together (or fight together, as the case may be : ) I was reminded that their eternal souls are held in God’s hands.  While I am responsible to present them with truth and pray for them daily,…
