Friday Round-Up - #52

Wow, what a great Happy Blogoversary Month! It's not over yet. You still have until Saturday midnight to enter the drawing. Scroll down, and check out the Monday post (May 25, 2009). There will be THREE winners in this drawing.

Last Sunday, I went to a Chuck Girard concert at a friend's church. Now, for some of you younger folks, he's a pioneer of contemporary Christian music. Way back during the Jesus Movement, Chuck found Jesus at Calvary Chapel (Pastor Chuck Smith) in California. He and a group of friends formed, "Love Song," a Christian band. He's written a bunch of songs including, "Sometimes Hallelujah, Sometimes Praise the Lord," and "Little Country Church." If you're interested, you can check out his website.

Over at The Master's Artist, Simon Maxwell expounds on I Corinthians 13 - the love chapter. I thought you might enjoy this post.

Becky Melby and Cathy Wienke talk about the team approach to character development. Check out their method at the Edit Cafe.

Last, but not least, Gail Gaymer Martin shares her resources for naming characters, personality development, etc.

Have a blessed weekend!

Great links Susan! I'm looking forward to checking them out later.
I've never heard of that artist but I hope you enjoyed the concert. :-)

Hi Jess -

I'm not surprised you haven't heard of Chuck Girard. We're talking '70's here. :)

He produces all his own albums now, so he doesn't have big buck record companies behind him. You might want to check out his website and here some golden oldies of the Jesus Movement.

I hope you find the links interesting. It's hard to find something all of you haven't seen.

Susan :)

Hi Susan:

Ah yes, the '70's. I was but a babe in diapers...
(That was a lie; i was a stupid teenager) I remember Love Song, 2nd Chapter of Acts, and Evie. Those were simpler songs for simpler days,weren't they? Sweet.

We are going to hear FFH tonight. They did "Belly of the Whale" about ten years ago. At least I think that was the title. I'm looking forward to taking a teen from our church who isn't born again yet, hoping she'll make a comittment to Jesus.

I believe we'll be attending many concerts in Heaven. And dancing with abandon!

Thanks for digging up these wonderful links for us.

Blessed Weekend,

Hi Jen -

I'm glad someone else remembers Love Song. Times have certainly changed. Their songs set Christian music on its ear back then. Today, they wouldn't even be noticed.

Susan :)
