Faith Songs #1: Thinking of Newtown
This first Faith Songs collection, Faith Songs #1, emerged with two thoughts in-mind. The Newtown shooting tragedy that has left families, that community, and nation in deep grief and uncertainty. December 16 is the 76th birthday of my mother who is fighting a degenerative Alzheimer’s Disease, which also poses great uncertainties. And I suspect at some level, we are all facing uncertainties.
This collection speaks to our moments like these and remind us who God is in our lives.
One song, in-particular — There Is A Name — by my Kappa Brother and Brother in Christ blessed my spirit during some dark days of my life, a time of grieving the loss of my father and friend. Tonight we grieve in a tragedy that breaks the heart of a nation. But Jesus is a light in dark places. I not only weep for the families. But I weep for those who are hurting without knowing the Lord to whom they can take their hurts. In the very midst of grieving, I sing this song. I speak that name. And the evil that visited Newtown is pushed back in my mind.
Jesus. The Name above all other names. There is a Name. A Name that quiets our storms. I love the Name of Jesus who has proven Himself in my life. And for those dark times that Name brought me through I will forever speak that Name to Kenneth and to the world. I pray this song blessed you tonight. And for those who know the Name, let’s be intercessors tonight for people we’ve never met.
