Sunday Afternoon Music Video
Chris Tomlin is considered by some to be (specifically Parade Magazine) the most popular artist in contemporary Christian music because “he wrote or co-wrote three of the 10 most popular songs sung in churches each week, including ‘How Great Is Our God’ – which puts his reach beyond that of most rock stars.”
Contemporary Christian music is often called repetitious, simplistic, theologically shallow and even evil. I will agree that there are songs that are not grounded in solid doctrine, but most of this body of music flows from people's hearts -- and the emotion and passion that they feel cannot be discounted.
This song is one of those that I can sing every Sunday. It is simple and repetitious -- but the feeling of this song is so contemplative, reflective and worship-full. I wish I could have found a "live" recording of this, but please enjoy this slide-show that I found on You-Tube and may you be blessed by this simple song as I have been.
Blessings to all this Sunday afternoon.
