Is prayer really that important in a band? Shouldn’t musicians focus more on practicing? While Luke is stuck in traffic in the Swiss alps, Ben, Chad, and David talk about having the perspective that prayer changes everything, and David shares the first of many random stories.
Does a band need a clear vision to succeed? What is a covenant and how is it relevant to a Christian artist? In this first episode of the new series “Road Rules," the P&I regulars discuss these other related topics and Luke admits he supports girl bands.
I recently watched a documentary about the Maidan Revolution in Ukraine. The boldness and determination of the Ukrainian people fighting for their freedom was shocking. Many lost their lives defying the authorities and going against armed police battalions with sticks and stones. They fought for a political change and a temporal freedom.
Jesus grew up in a storytelling culture. The Greeks told fables, and the Jewish rabbis spoke in “mashal,” a very common oral and literary art form used when teaching the Torah. Storytelling was possibly the most well-known and appreciated art form of that time, and it is still very present in Middle Eastern culture and tradition today.
Whether it’s caused by the loss of our passion and focus over time; running on principle rather than intimacy with God; or simply not realizing the spiritual battle we are in, we can find ourselves giving up on our calling. In this final episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, we talk about why we often decide to give up, and how we can find the strength to persevere.
If Paul had a band, he would care deeply about his audience. Not in the sense that we often do in the music scene: caring if people like our Facebook page, come to our shows, enjoy our music and buy our merch. Paul would care about the spiritual growth and well-being of his audience. He always cared about how others were doing in their walk with Jesus.
