Are We Listening, Church?

It's hard to believe, but it's been over 18 months since a Music Monday post has hit this blog. Since I've been hearing today's featured song more and more over the last several months, I felt like today was it's turn. 

I'm in my 50s, have been attending church since 9 months before I was born, and every time I hear this song, it makes me think. In fact, it makes me think a lot about how every day, we "Christians" throw stones at the rest of the world about how it lives and behaves. The truth is that we live in glass houses ourselves, and we desperately need to get them in order before we can effectively share the love of Jesus with others and see the world change. Until WE do, WE are hypocrites.

Casting Crowns, in their 1st appearance here on a Music Monday, deals with this very issue in "Start Right Here". The music video is embedded below and can also be enjoyed here

 This song is truthful, so Church, I gotta ask - are we listening?
