At it’s greatest depth, this is what love looks like…
Some time ago I was invited to play guitar on a compilation of prayers set to music that is truly extraordinary. In my view, “Romero” alone is worth buying the entire project for! Please read on:
Most who know me have long ago realized I can be quite intense, sometimes -too- much so. Then there are times I lament over the lack of depth among those professing to be Christians who apparently do not begin to grasp the pain of loving one’s neighbor… and loving Jesus to the point of death. Loving others to such an extreme is of course, about as intense a love as one could have for another (I read a verse that says that… somewhere :).
As a new believer Foxes Book of Martyrs (http://www.foxes-book-of-martyrs.com/) brought an intensity far beyond my own into my world. It’s a book I sometimes say few Christians want to remember much less read these days. Love for Christ, for one’s neighbor and the Word of God has been the end (physically speaking) of many a saint, both known and unknown to the greater Church much less surrounding world.
The Martyrs Project at core is a collection of prayers of ancient and modern martyrs set to music.
From the website: “The album, however, is more than fantastic music. It is packaged with a wealth of information in liner notes, biographies and resource materials. It is a call to know the past and transform the present; to find purpose in life from the question asked of us all:
“WHAT WOULD YOU DIE FOR?”
A wide array of talented musicians took part.
Quoting again from the website: “THE PROJECT IS: MICHAEL GLEN BELL & DUANE W.H. ARNOLD with:
PHIL KEAGGY | RANDY STONEHILL | JENNIFER KNAPP | GLENN KAISER | KEMPER CRABB | RONNIE CIAGO | WAYNE BERRY | THE McCRARY SISTERS | JOHN SFERRA | MARGARET BECKER | MIKE PACHELLI”
Please have a look, read, listen and purchase.
