Archives For David Crowder Band

So The David Crowder Band released a single this week – How He Loves Us – can’t wait for the whole CD (and tour)!  The chatter on Twitter was about their decision to change a few lyrics on the second verse of the song from:

So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss
to
So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss

Crowder blogged about the song release and it’s personal story.  I appreciate his thoughts:

right before we started recording the new album, “church music”, i was on a plane flight listening to a friend of ours cd when this song started playing. about a minute into the thing i was weeping like a small child. it was slightly embarrassing, seeing as i was on a plane in the near proximity of other humans whom i didn’t wish to frightened. but dang, this song! i don’t know how i avoided hearing it for so long, but i knew there were more people out there like myself that hadn’t heard it yet and i became determined to change that. it’s one of those you just want to sing

sb-postSo by now you’ve probably heard about Susan Boyle and her experience on the UK TV show Britain’s Got Talent – it’s all over YouTube and she’s even on Wikipedia! If you haven’t, you gotta get out more!

The obvious lesson here is how we judge by appearances – all of us. Whether we are willing to admit it or not, we do it. We know it’s wrong and unfair, but it’s a natural reaction…

In an interview with the Washington Post, Boyle said it all to well:

“Modern society is too quick to judge people on their appearances. … There is not much you can do about it; it is the way they think; it is the way they are. But maybe this could teach them a lesson, or set an example.”

That’s the obvious take away…I have two other observations:

worship-pinkSo I was driving home this past Sunday night from a great time of fellowship, worship, and Communion our church had at Mission Springs Conference Center in the Santa Cruz Mountains…and guess what, I got stuck in traffic on Highway 17. What to do (ok, so I had to drive!) – rather, what to listen to? BTW, my wife had to stay home – she pulled a muscle in her back the day before 😦

Alone in the car (my choices are expanded…my wife and I appreciate different kinds of music at times), dark outside (so no one can really SEE me singing at the top of my lungs)…hmmm – sounds like a good time for a David Crowder Band session – their Remedy Club Tour CD to be specific. [Shout out to my fellow Crowderians Ben, Joel, and Pat]

There are so many favorites on this CD, but tonight I keyed on one song: Foreverandever Etc. Certainly the “moment of corporate whistling” and the shout out to the 80’s (A-Team, Bon Jovi, leg warmers?, and Super Mario) are great (and fun!); but the lyrics are profound (yes, David Crowder and “profound” in the same sentence!)

Profound because of two things: God’s love and the thought of “FOREVER”.

God’s Love
Not a long description here, just consider God’s love for YOU/me in light of the definitions from two key words in the song:

  • Incredible: So extraordinary as to seem impossible.
  • Indelible: That cannot be eliminated, forgotten, changed, or the like.

“Forever”
Having just left a great time of worshiping God with my church family, the thought of spending FOREVER with them “at [Christ’s] feet” was overwhelming. As much as we tried to express our love and adoration for God in that room, to think that one day we will sing before Jesus and see Him smile – well, what can I say. [Hey, I’m sure there will even be corporate whistling!]

Anyway…‘nuff said!

BTW, in my senior picture, my hair looked somewhat akin to David’s… No beard though!
