Music’s on the Way (and already here!)

Today, we gave updates on some of your favorite Christian artists. This week? TobyMac and Bethel Music are in the news!

TobyMac released his brand new single, “Promised Land” this past Friday. This song from the seven time Grammy Award Winner serves as a follow up to his previous single “Help is on the Way”, that sat #1 on the charts for multiple weeks at launch.

Also on Friday, TobyMac simultaneously premiered the music video on Facebook in honor of his grandfather, a miner in West Virginia, where TobyMac’s own father grew up in a mining camp. “It was a hard life,” he says. “A life where I imagine they must have really wondered where in the world is my promised land?” 

Ultimately, he says of the song, “The lyrics land where I want my life to land: that the promised land is no land at all, but a relationship with the King that loves us deeply. It turns from where’s my promised land, to you’re my promised land. Maybe the promised land we’re looking for is no place at all, but a person named Jesus.”

TobyMac takes the road once again this fall for his “Hits Deep” tour in Moline, IL on October 2nd. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, September 23rd and can be found at https://tobymac.com/tour

Bethel Music will release their new album Homecoming this Friday! This album marks the first time all members of the collective are on one album. Also joining them will be Gable Price, Matt Redman, and Naomi Raine, among others.  

Reflecting on recording Homecoming, Jonathan David Helser shares “during the live recording of “Homecoming” my heart was stirred with the image of building an altar. Each song was like a stone stacked upon each other and as we poured out our offering of worship, God’s presence came like fire on the altar. My dream for this album is that many more hearts would come to this altar of songs and encounter the Presence of God and be changed forever.” 

These two stories along with much more can be found at jesusfreakhideout.com!

I don’t know what it’s like to be you
You don’t know what it’s like to be me
What if we’re all the same in different kinds of ways?
Can you, can you _______?

Day of Prayer and Praise! Who Knew Wednesday for Lifeline 2021!

Joe and Lexie praise God for Lifeline 2021’s Day of Prayer & Praise!

They share many testimonies from listeners, and praise God for another chance to celebrate with Lifeline 2021!

our theme this year is Keep Me In The Moment, and we share a lot about how we can stay in the moment.

Lexie in particular shares a devotional about how Every Moment Matters.

Joe talks about toasters! (Trust us it makes sense.)

Sometimes being in a service medium you may feel like a toaster, you’re expected to do what you do and do it well consistently, and it is only when you have hiccups or don’t perform well that you get noticed. Maybe you feel like a toaster, but God likes his toast however you make it! So thank you, for being in the business of serving others!

” There’s a sign on the door, says, “Come as you are” but I doubt it

’cause if we lived like it was true, every Sunday morning pew would be

crowded. But didn’t you say the church should look more like a hospital

a safe place for the sick, the sinner and te scarred and the prodigals like me.

Who Knew Wednesday: You can use WHAT to stick a poster to the wall?

The Floss Fix: To hang lightweight artwork that’s not in a heavy frame, there’s no need to buy picture wire. Unwaxed dental floss will do the trick.

Picture This: Hanging a picture? Make it easy by first taping a thumbtack, pointy side out, to the back below the hanging bracket. Perfectly position your picture and they give it a bit of a push into the wall. 

Upright Candles: Do your candles slide around and their holders like a kid wearing his dad’s pants? Wrap the bottom with tape to get the right fit.

Magazine Management: Are magazines messing up your home? Make some decorative and functional magazine holders by cutting cereal boxes at angles and covering them with wrapping paper. Cover some of them with lacquer or decoupage for a durable finish. 

Your Poster Child: If your teenager loves talking posters upon his or her bedroom wall, here’s a great tip to keep the corners hole free. Place a binder clip on each Corner then slip them over nails or thumbtacks. As an added bonus get shiny or colorful binder clips. 

A Great Uses for Old Jewelry: Do you have too many brooches, pin, earrings and necklaces that you never get around to wearing? Repurpose them by turning them into unique magnets that get noticed! Just use wire cutters to cut off the back of earrings and pins and then take pendants off of a necklace and glue a magnet to them on the back.

Question: When slipping curtains over a metal rod, first place a ________ over the metal end. This will help you avoid snagging the curtain so they go on easily.

Answer: Plastic Bag

Huge shout out to Teresa from Mount Vernon who guessed the answer to this question, but then told us to give the tickets to the first Teenage who called in. Elli From Fredericktown called in right after that – Have fun at WinterJam 2020 Elli!

Question: A terrific way to hang posters and your kids room without leaving holes or stains is with ______________. Just put a generous drop on the back of each corner, press it to the wall, and watch it stick

Answer: Toothpaste! White, non -gel to be exact.

Congratulations to Kenna from Mount Vernon who guessed this right on the first try! You have fun at Winter Jam too, Kenna!!!
