The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 2008

Every Friday night I post the Top 5 of one of my classic hit music charts based on personal preference from either 10, 20, or 30 years ago (rotating each week). Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 14TH 2008:

  1. “Sleeping In” – Nevertheless
  2. “Closer Than We Think” – The Classic Crime
  3. “All My Balloons” – Children 18:3
  4. “Shine With Me” – P.O.D.
  5. “This Is A Warning” – Dizmas

On this day 10 years ago it was a Sunday, and I wrote right here on this blog about the kickoff of our church’s 3-service schedule at 8:30, 9:45, and 11:00. “As it turns out all three services were solid as a rock and rather evenly distributed in attendance. Flagship Cinemas dreams of the number of people that we had in their building this morning during the regular work and school week.” (Our church met in our town’s movie theatre at the time, and I made light of the fact that our movie theatre was struggling. It still is, but it’s still in business showing first-run movies.)

Look what else this Christian of 2 years at the time wrote on his blog 10 years ago:

“God sees the whole picture. He is the only one who does. That is why He does things His way for His reasons in His own time. It is fine to question God at any time. In fact it is beneficial to do so. That is what a deeply-committed believer in Him does. It’s one who expresses questions for God and faith in Him simultaneously.”

That’s some Good News right there.

This weekend I’ll be mostly Bible-studying and sermon-writing. I’m writing two sermons simultaneously – one on James 4 and one on Genesis 4 – and I’m building a foundation for a 3RD sermon. May you have a weekend of fun, good times, and Good News. I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture.
