Doctrines of Grace

I had been thinking about doing a series of posts looking at the Doctrines of Grace a while ago. But today I read the following Taste and See article from Desiring God Ministries so thought I would post a link to it and maybe come back to doing my own, slightly more detailed blog posts at a later date. Enjoy!

Before the Throne - Live from NWA 2009

It has been a long time since I last posted, very slack of me. I have loads of things I would like to write about, hopefully I will make more time to do it in the coming weeks. But for the first post back I want to review a cd. "Before the Throne" is the live worship cd from New Word Alive 2009. It is excellent. Songs are lead by Stuart Townend, Lou Fellingham and Keith and Kristyn Getty. If you attended the conference, listening to this is a great way to relive a part of it. It contains old favourites like " Before the Throne," "Oh to see the dawn," and "You are my Anchor (Father's Embrace)." But there are also some new songs (although since it has taken me so long to post this, not so new) which I am sure will become classics. "God Immortal" which is new take on the classic old hymn "Immortal Invisible" I believe, written by Lou Fellingham, is a great song, I've tried it at my church and it went well. "Creation sings" and "Come people of the risen King" are products of the never ending stream of quality new hymns from the Townend, Getty and Getty collaboration sure to be heard in churches round the land for years to come. It is also worth mentioning a very moving solo of "Hear O Israel" performed by Kristyn Getty part way through the album. If you are thinking of buying a new worship cd in the near future and want good music and quality lyrics, look no further.
