Pardon my diversion to present this year’s official Oklahoma Sooners Intro Video.
Two horrific episodes in the history of the American South bracket the story of Selma the movie. Within minutes of the opening, little girls at church in Birmingham are massacred by a bomb left in the church building which housed a black congregation. By the end of the movie, we witness the brutal beating of peaceful marchers by government forces.
In between these racist acts of violence, we witness the personal and organizational push to be able to exercise the right to vote. The organizational push is led by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Sojourn Music has released its latest CD. As a former member of Sojourn Church in Louisville, it is always with great joy that I experience the music they produce. God has amazingly gifted men and women in this church as modern day psalmists. Mike Cosper leads this ministry and has a great heart for the Lord and his church.
In addition to my previous connection, the keyboard player (Jonathan Barahona) from my current church (First Boynton) plays on this CD. He currently resides in Louisville and has connected with this ministry.
I have listened to all of the tracks on this work, but the one that stands out is Let Justice Roll (track #4). I previously saw online Mike Cosper refer to this song. When Barahona was in town for Christmas, this is the song he recommended to me.
