Happy Easter! Yes, I know Easter is a pagan term and it’s truly about the Resurrection of Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of all. Sometimes we get caught up in the smallest of matters.
Spent last night at The Sanctuary Music Venue listening to six talented bands playing for a chance to battle once again at Ichthus, for the opportunity to appear on the “big stage” in June, at Wilmore, Kentucky…Ichthus 2011.
Music has changed over the years, even more so has Christian music. It’s a balancing act of worship and the show…you must have stage presence. Still trying to understand the mosh pit, but that’s okay, somethings I’ll never get. And head banging makes me chuckle. I realize these statements cause me to appear old and that’s okay too. I am.
I’m thinking of the bands who didn’t make it to the big show, my son’s who play a different kind of music which doesn’t encite throwing your body around in a crowd, the talented writer with a seemly blog and a heart to promote good, clean talent, the lonely soul who doesn’t seem to fit in, those who are always searching but never finding what it is that will truly make their lives more joyful and for those with so many good questions who find answers that don’t make sense…but in the end, what matters most, is how you live your life on Earth and what happens next.
