had a young man working with our youth named Todd Agnew. I didn’t get to know Todd at all, this was during my time away from the church. But my daughters grew much under him and SU liked him very much.
He has written a number of songs and is now a successful musician but I’m convinced that he hasn’t lost his way as so many others have. BIL and I covered a couple of his songs, Grace Like Rain and Come Ye Sinners.
Browsing around You Tube today, I found a video of a song that he wrote while he was at our church and then later recorded it. The video is not his, but was done by someone using cuts of The Passion and set to the song. Amazing.
Blessed are the poor in spirit
Or do we pray to be blessed with the wealth of this land
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness
Or do we ache for another taste of this world of shifting sand
Cause my Jesus bled and died for my sins
He spent His time with thieves and sluts and liars
He loved the poor and accosted the rich
So which one do you want to be?
