Practical Ecclesiology 9 - Matters of the Heart
I was introduced to Bob Bennett in college, in the mid-80's. He has a golden tenor voice, girded up with expressive guitar work, and singing images that I found by turns beautiful, uplifting, heart rending, and challenging. He does very very good work. He is not, however, the sort of singer songwriter that will really ever make the big splash. I don't think he would put up with the sort of poop that is required to make that big splash.
I have always sensed in his work a rigorous integration of his faith, his life and his art. I appreciate that.
This song speaks for itself. Listen to it, and those of you who know our church may find that it touches on some of our current dilemnas.
