"The best thing you can do for your fellow, next to rousing his conscience, is - not to give him things to think about, but to wake things up that are in him..." - George MacDonald
In the last few years I've found some great music and stories through the gang over at the Rabbit Room Dot Com. They always have thoughtful, creative and helpful posts on the blog and good stuff in the store. If you frequent my blog, I'm sure you've noticed I like these guys. But hey, good is good.
My friend Aaron surprised me by pre-ordering a two pack of "Counting Stars", the new album from Andrew Peterson and it arrived this week. If you are already a fan of Andrew Peterson, this album will not disappoint. If you've never heard of him, this would be a great place to jump in. "Counting Stars" is an acoustic driven album full of the good, deep, life affirming stuff of longing, fear, hope, disappointment, work, family, imagination, faith and love.

Here's a video from the album (HERE IF YOU'RE READING ON FACEBOOK!)
And if you can catch it, there's a free online concert happening this Tuesday. Over here on the west coast, it's at 5pm (boo...I'll be in a church staff meeting). You can check that out here...http://www.hearitfirst.com/live/
And there's a good article about the new album over here...breathcast.com
So yeah, I like it. So there.
