I have a confession to make. Sometimes I spy on y’all. It’s true. If you comment or like things I write or interact with me a lot on facebook, I might go poking around the internet a bit to find out more about you. And then I report my findings to the NSA. OK, I’m totally lying about that last part. I don’t even know how to report things to the NSA.
Mostly, I’m just wondering who the heck is reading what I write. And while I know nothing about at least 98% of my readers, those of you whose names I do know, tend to be an eclectic, interesting and talented bunch. Which, obviously, is what one would expect from people who are discerning enough to appreciate a Christian writer who swears and makes the occasional poop joke.
At any rate, I think it’s well past time that I share some of these interesting people with y’all. Particularly those who are involved in creative pursuits who you might never hear of otherwise.
Today, I want to introduce you to one of the first readers I ever spied on. His name is Jason Silver. Jason writes and sings beautiful music, mainly worship songs. I asked Jason to share his favorite video and a bit about his work:
I grew up as an evangelical, went to Bible college, became a pastor, and worked in churches as a music director and worship leader for 15 years. But somewhere along that journey I felt God directing me to become an Anglican, and to use my gifts to help breathe life into the 150 year old church in my village.Every week I write a song for our contemporary worship, taking the lectionary readings from the Psalm and putting them to a melody.I like to share these songs with the church at large, so I’ve started making videos and uploading them to YouTube. I hope that my music can be a blessing to you!
Check it out. Pass it around. And stop being so quiet, y’all!
