this Wednesday Night: worshiping the God of the Oppressed

For the last six months, I’ve had the privilege of partnering with International Teams and eight other artists to create “Songs for the Oppressed (vol 1)”.  I-Team’s president Scott Olson had the dream to unleash indie artists to create songs/art for the direct benefit of the most oppressed people on planet earth, and his vision is now alive and kicking.

I’m going to be doing a lot more blogging about this project here – sharing songs, stories, and more – but today I want to let you know about two things:

First, check out the website!  songsfortheoppressed.org. You can listen to all the songs, learn about the artists, check out the video contest, submit a song for volume 2, or join this cause by buying a CD or two…or ten.

Second, we are having a night of worship for the oppressed THIS WEDNESDAY (June 15th) AT WILLOW CREEK. 7pm in the Lake Side Auditorium. Please join us in singing songs to God (from this CD), and then praying for the world…that God’s will would be done and God’s Kingdom would come. The new CDs will also be available for the first time. (And Gordon MacDonald will be giving a message afterward called “Cultivating Deep People”). Hope to see you there!

sincerely,
Aaron

One Response to “this Wednesday Night: worshiping the God of the Oppressed”

  1. I came here hoping to find the words that Sharon so movingly recited, “Where is grace?” That question has been haunting me ever since. I am on a search for it, everywhere it shows itself in this world and in individual lives, and when I find it, I want to write about it and share the stories with others (because as Erwin McManus reminded us, “whoever writes the best story can win the culture”). And the most pointed question of all, “Am I a grace bearer?” How could I be more intentional about living a life that opens up other people’s eyes to His Presence and His grace. Great questions to be wrestling with…..thanks for such thought provoking worship.
