16 Apr: It is Finished

For many, this past week signified Passion Week.  It was a week that started with peaceful palms and finished with a glorious resurrection.  Though there are a few different suggestions for the name, the week is rightfully titled as it displays the Lord’s passion in willingly going to the cross for the sins of all mankind.  To me, there is no other word that could possibly personify the emotions of Jesus…”Passion.”  


04 Sep: Have You Found What You’re Looking For?

In 1987, the Irish rock band U2, released a song called “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” from The Joshua Tree album. Lead singer, Bono, admitted that the music and the lyrics were inspired by African-American spirituals, which, themselves, were actually inspired by the book of Psalms. More specifically, spirituals were based off of a common genre of psalms called lament psalms, which often began with woes and cries of self-pity and hopelessness, but then ended with words of hope, joy, and worship to the Lord.
