God's People Sing

I've been reading devotionals and Scripture each morning from Living the Message: Daily Help for Living the God-centered Life by Eugene H. Peterson. I've had several favorites I've wanted to post on my blog. I read this one last Friday morning.

"There are songs everywhere in scripture. The people of God sing. They express exuberance in realizing the majesty of God and the mercy of Christ, the wholeness of reality and their new-found ability to participate in it. Songs proliferate. Hymns gather the voices of men, women, and children into century-tiered choirs. Moses sings. Miriam sings. Deborah sings. David sings. Mary sings. Angels sing. Jesus and his disciples sing. Paul and Silas sing. When persons of faith become aware of who God is and what he does, they sing. The songs are irrepressible."

Then I heard every creature in Heaven and earth, in underworld and sea, join in, all voices in all places, singing:
To the One on the Throne! To the Lamb!
The blessing, the honor, the glory, the strength,
For age after age after age.

Noel Green Videos

Noel Green and I have been friends ever since my freshman year in college/University, 1993. I'm posting my favorite "Noel Green and Friends" videos. Click on the title to be linked to the whole smorgasbord of videos. But here on my blog you can watch my favorites.

The first one, a music video, is fairly well known on YouTube. I just absolutely love it. It's a great song and an excellent interpretation.

This next video makes me laugh to tears every time I watch it.

The Ziploc Fingerman Special is a classic I still love to watch and it was made pre-digital.

Noel made the next two videos for assignments in college.

Okay, here are the Star Wars overdubs that take the cake . . . the spice cake that is . . .
