The “word” still seems to be going around about our 7 Last Words service earlier this month. We posted the video recap last week that’s been making the rounds. The music on the video is a cover of ‘Mercy Mercy Me’ led by Cat Cain of Cain Management, who also arranged for our musicians and singers to come that night. The photographs were taken by Linda Furtado of Furtados.net (@furtadosdesign).
I love my sisters! I feel the need to share some love for my sisters who made unique contributions that night. Though he couldn’t make it, my brother, Chris Franklin, helped with graphics and promotion. My siblings and I have been through it all and it’s a joy to see us still doing our thing, bringing our talents and gifts together, after all these years!
Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On is one of the most important albums of the 20th century. Released in May 1971, in this recording, Gaye meditates on an American dream deferred from the perspective of a Vietnam War veteran. Gaye wrestles with the problems of decay in black and inner city communities, environmental woes, military turbulence, police brutality, unemployment and poverty. Throughout What’s Going On, he expresses vigilant hope in God and humanity while giving voice to the pain, despair and suffering too many experience in this world. More at REBIRTHlive.net.
