More Than Noise

Our Food for the Hungry posse
Phil, Matt, and Leeland worshiping together

Katie and I experienced a wonderful time of worship at the Leeland/Phil Wickham/Matt Maher concert we attended last night. Katie has a great post about it here.

The worship tour is sponsored by Food for the Hungry. Leeland is one of their artists and offered an inspiring plea for worship to be more than just singing songs; it is to be about acts of love and justice in our world. We need to take care of the poor and orphans, like sponsoring a child through FH; otherwise, the music is just noise. Reminds me of this passage in Amos:
Away with the noise of your songs!
I will not listen to the music of your harps.
But let justice roll on like a river,
righteousness like a never-failing stream!
