My order came today! What order, you may ask? Well, my order of the first CD by Sons of Korah and the DVD of one of their live 2006 concerts. Who, you are probably now asking, are the Sons of Korah?
(From their website www.sonsofkorah.com)
Sons of Korah believe that the psalms contain a particularly pertinent message for today. They are the supreme biblical portrayal of the spiritual life in all its facets and dynamics. They speak powerfully to a postmodern world that is generally more interested in what the biblical faith looks like from the inside than its abstract doctrinal expression. And for the church today the psalms present a compelling challenge to the often one-dimensional and romanticized spirituality that we find it so hard to move beyond. The psalms portray a rich, multifaceted and real spirituality. They speak powerfully to those who are well acquainted both with the sting of a cursed world and the sweetness of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ. The psalms were originally written as songs and they were intended to be used. They have a role in the spiritual life and they perform this role as songs. The best way to meditate on God’s word is to use music and indeed this was one of dominant original purposes of the psalms. Sons of Korah invite their listeners to discover, through their music, the way in which the psalms can impact our lives today.
I have waited all day to open these. Husband, Barry, was the first to find them and I wanted to be able to share the joy of watching/listening with him. I am awash with anticipation at the thought of hearing the Psalms sung. What a beautiful way to apply God’s word to my heart.
May you all be blessed this evening.
