Good Friday – One Hanging on a Tree

The great and terrible Friday. The place where the great and terrible God of all creation judges. Where He loves. Where He mercies. Where He graces. 

All will be judged. But through the one sent from the Father, we can escape judgement and receive love, mercy and grace.

Monday Music

I sang this beautiful hymn yesterday at a large central London church with a few hundred confident, care free singers. It was a more modern version and arrangement than this one and I didn’t realise it was a very old hymn until I tried to track it down to share with you. A modern rendition does not seem to available so here is the oldie but goodie.

Good Friday to Easter


Favourites at this point – O Sacred Head Now Wounded (meditate on that title for a week and get back to me – changed) and Roll Away the Stone.

I have really enjoyed my first listen through. Quite Christmassy at times. And why not?

This is the second release (first release info here) that is focused on this most climactic time in the year for Christians – Easter.

And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.

Monday Music – Classic Rock

Rock of Ages that is. This is a classic hymn by Augustus M Toplady (real name, not a comedy name).  Composed in 1775 so it’s got vintage. Given a beautiful and invigorating treatment here by someone new to me since this Christmas – Dustin Kensrue whose album The Water & The Blood is outstanding – rocky, passionate, gritty, turbulent, melancholic and broody. Will bring you more on this and the quirky story of an album I bought for another and kept for myself. Not as bad as it sounds. Enjoy your Monday.
