For several weeks now, the Casting Crowns’ song “I Will Praise You in the Storm” has been playing on the radio. While I was away at FLAME, I heard about the song “While You Were Sleeping.” In addition, my wife was starting to ask me about this CD, so as a belated Mother’s Day gift, we traveled to Danville, VA and picked up the Lifesong CD. It has gotten almost continuous play since we bought it. My oldest daughter didn’t like it because she said it was melancholy. The CD addresses “worship” in a whole new light. It calls for more listening so that the lyrics can get under my skin and make a difference. Lifesong is a reminder that “worship” is so much more than music, singing, and raising our hands. As Paul says in Romans 12, “And so dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice–the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.”
