I was boppin’ around youtube.com tonight listening to music and ended up listening to some old Keith Green songs. For those of you who don’t know Keith Green, he was a 1970’s singer/musician who became a follower of Christ and then began writing and performing some great songs. He’s probably not the best musician or singer you’ve ever heard, but no one can deny his passion, enthusiasm and “no compromise” attitude about truly living as a follower of Jesus. If my memory serves me well, he died prematurely in a plane accident. I believe his wife (Melody) wrote his biography entitled, “No Compromise.” Even if you’ve never heard of Keith Green and his music, “No Compromise” is a great read. I think I have a copy at my office if someone wants to buy it. Check out www.keithgreen.com for more info or search for him on youtube.com.
Besides being an outstanding example of what it means to follow Christ with passion, Keith Green had great hair like my Uncle Phil did when he was younger!
