Content vs. Form (Discriminating Taste)

One day, a couple years ago, I was working in a room where my co-workers were listening to a Christian radio station…playing mostly contemporary/modern worship songs. Many of which I recognized from playing on the worship team at church…but I was not enjoying those particular recorded versions at all. When I made a comment or…

Preaching Death by The Depths The Depths have a unique place on this comp, as their drummer Addam is part of the family that the benefit is supporting. Addam’s wife lost a tough battle with a brutal disease and Addam is forging ahead as a strong man and father because that’s the only choice. While…
