for your commute…and soul

October 24, 2008 | 2 Comments

For those looking to rotate some new content onto your play list, I give you some of my favorites of late. And if you’ve had your coffee, you might notice a theme here…

  • For my Explosions in the Sky or Sigur Ros loving friends I’d suggest you give a listen to Joy Wants Eternity. They are new to me too, but so far, I think I like Must You Smash Your Ears Before You Learn To Listen With Your Eyes best. I find I’m listening mostly to instrumental tunes these days…it’s like a musical score to the story of my life.
  • A few months ago, one of my Twitter peeps mentioned The Moth Podcast. (Was it you, Jake Bouma?) It is stories, stories, and more stories. Some are humorous. Some are poignant. Some are both. All of them are engaging.
  • Rob Bell was at his best this weekend in his message called Beware the Dogs. He did what he often does so well — placed a small text into the larger story of Scripture to reveal how it mattered then…and now.
  • While you are on that Mars Hill Teaching Page, or on their podcast, listen to Brian McLaren’s guest teaching called Which Story Do We Live In. It a great summary of some of his ideas from Everything Must Change.

Did you catch it? The theme? What can I say…it’s my year of the story.

  • Yes, it was probably me. I LOVE that podcast.

  • Then I am obliged.
