This modern interpretation of the old carol brings it alive for a new generation. Andy Gridley’s new-tech, layered performance intrigues me.
But through it all you can hear the cry of a sad, captive people that long for release – “O come, O come, Emmanuel! Let your Kingdom Come!”
And then, in faith, the affirmation rises: “Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.”
What a message for the world today! It is only through Emmanuel, Christ who is with us, that we can truly know freedom.
In the middle of all the Christmas rush, take a moment to have a laugh with these very clever and musical guys!
This beautiful piece of art came to my attention a few days ago. The fiery colours, the blaze of light – both speak of the awesomeness of God. This image draws me in and makes me pause and think of who it is I worship.
Then today I followed a web link and stumbled on a new song , Holy God by Brian Doerksen.
I hope you enjoy the video of Brian singing this song, which echoes so much the theme of Krystian’s image above. You can read more about the thinking behind Brian’s latest project at the blog Christianity 201 .
Can you believe it? This is amazing – Deke McLelland really knows his stuff!
I am learning little by little how to use Photoshop and this video is a fun challenge to use the tools.
