Gungor’s New Single: When Death Dies

Gungor’s new single does not disappoint. When Death Dies is obviously a work of great skill and beautiful composition, blending Spanish Moroccan-like rifts and clapping, eclectic accordion tunes, elegant cello, and an edgy flair of beat-boxing. But beneath the artful craft of these musicians lies a deeply profound dedication. The lyrics speak of all that comes to us “when death dies.” As “waters flooding a desert” and as “the sunrise shows... Read More

Why Agreement is So Important! Thoughts on Unity and Function of the Church

The other day I was reflecting on some of the posts that I have written, and the heart behind it all. I began to realize that to an outsider looking in, who does not know my heart, it may appear that I am a Church basher. As I re-read, I found myself saying that, “we do this wrong…” quite often. I’m not going to “take it back” because I am writing what I believe God is putting on my heart. However, I understand it can be depressing.... Read More

On Worship: An Insightful Glimpse into the Mind of Dustin Lau

If the Rocks Will Worship, So Shall We: The Triumphal Entry, Palm Sunday, and Worship

The long appointed time has come. The moment that was foretold thousands of years ago dawned on that day. As Jesus triumphantly entered into Jerusalem on what is now remembered and celebrated as Palm Sunday, great praise burst from the people of the city. At no time was Christ ever worshiped, praised, or exalted like this during his ministry. Despite his meek and humble entrance on a donkey covered with the cloaks of shepherds and vagabonds, such... Read More

God According to Gungor: The Character, Race, and Gender of the Divine

It was early Monday morning when I checked my email to find a message from my friend and developer of Theology21.com, Jonathan Keck. It read something along the lines of this: Had a great time at Catalyst Conference.  Have you heard of Gungor? I saw their video, “God Is Not a Man” there and I was wondering if you’d like to write an article on it? I faceplanted into my keyboard. I had been introduced to the song months ago by a friend of mine,... Read More
