As a kid, I was in love with the song "Angels" by Amy Grant. It was inspiring. It made me believe in God.
And, for some reason, I was thinking about it this morning. So, I looked it up on youtube and found something surprising.
IT HAD A VIDEO!
You can find it here...
Be prepared: this is filled with 80's schlock. Watch the boy in yellow. He really seems to get into it. You'll love it when they lean in to get quiet and lean back when they get loud. And, what's up with the poor guy in the water that seems guarded by the people with masks? And who's the poor grey Fanciscan who is taken captive by Roman soldiers in a rat infested cell?
It's confusing but also kind of....really really bad! I can't lie to you. I'm so glad that we've moved past this. This is why the church needs to be really careful about introducing new music to worship. We can still sing "Holy God, We praise thy name." We laugh at "Angels."
