Last night, we had the privilege of attending a concert at our church. I wish I had more time to write a glowing review, but I'm pretty crunched at work, so I'll be quite succinct. Ready?
best. concert. ever.
Andrew Peterson, Bebo Norman, Andy Osenga, and others (note to self - add "others" later) spent the first half of the show doing a concert in the round. Five very talented and passionate artist/songwriters basically had fun up on stage and let us peek in on what's it like to see our God's world through a poet's eyes. The second half of the show was the Christmas story, but the way it should always be told. The music started in Genesis of the Older Testament and worked it's way forward through time and the Bible. As Sarah put it through teary eyes, "Why don't more Christmas stories have Christ's birth as the crescendo?!" In essence, there was a buildup of music concerning the thread of Christ woven throughout prophesy.
It was a spectacular night. I wish I had the gift of words to share how my heart was touched, my ears tickled, and my intellect pleased. I say "Thank You!" to the artists. Thank you for a night of worship and for giving me hope that Christian music will not continue to digress into the popular yet meaningless.
