Just this last Easter, I heard this song for the very first time playing over the PA at the church we’ve been attending. I was so taken by it, I immediately went up to the nearest speaker and asked Siri to ID it for me, which then I immediately purchased.
Written and performed by a husband-wife team called Pennel, I was blown away by two aspects of this selection:
- The power of the message. This is truly a rock anthem for our current age, a call-to-arms for the Body of Christ to stand up for the Gospel no matter what it may cost us! And, may I add, that cost is growing exponentially by the day, even in the USA. Tragically, there are many who will not pay that cost to their eternal detriment.
- The power of the music. Pennel’s unique musical style defies categorization into a single genre and stands completely apart from the insipidness and same-song-different-lyrics pablum of the typical pop music airing on Christian radio. IMHO, the only other band demonstrating this kind of out-of-the-box uniqueness and creativity these days is We The Kingdom of Holy Water fame.
