Good News - May 2022

I listen to almost no music. When I am in the mood, I love Sara McLachlan and her work, but the mood doesn't strike me very often. I listen to a lot of books (right now I am finishing up a biography of Houdini) and find that a better use of my time than music. This is just me and probably a character flaw, but I'm really not a music kind of person (please forgive me all you worship leaders). Samuel Lamerson, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Biblical Studies, Knox Theological Seminary The artist that I always recommend is Jeremy Camp. He is not only an amazing Christian artist, but he himself has been through a lot of pain in his past with losing his first wife and sings from the redemption that he has experienced through his walk with Christ. He was also the first Christian artist that I started listening to with his song, “Walk By Faith,” that gave me great encouragement about believing even when we don’t see. Steve Daigle, Campus Pastor, Calvary Chapel Parkland Gospel: NicoleC.Mullen– “MyRedeemer Lives” andCeCeWinans– “BelieveFor It” Other: The Police (Sting) – “Every Breath You Take” and Luther Vandross – “Here and Now” Rev. Dr. Ted Greer, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Hope South Florida There are so many amazing Christian artists, Chris Tomlin, For King and Country, Kirk Franklin, Mercy Me, Steven Curtis Chapman, Matthew West, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Casting Crowns and so many others that I could list - it really is difficult to narrow it down to one. But Right now, my number one recommendation is Elevation Worship featuring Maverick City Music. And the song I would recommend is "Wait On You." Give it a listen and you'll understand. Thomas L. Lukasik, Vice President - Community Engagement, 4KIDS My favorite Christian band is Casting Crowns. I love their music. I am sorry, but I cannot just recommend one song. The top ones for me are “Praise You in the Storm,” “Lifesong” and “Voice of truth.” Their music just ministers so deeply to my heart. I am so uplifted when I play their music. It gives my soul strength. One day I hope to see them in concert.
