  • Such an honor to lead worship at Barna Labs last week. I love the work the Barna Group is doing.

Worship

Love this quote from Bob Kauflin's "Worship Matters".

Nothing against skill, practice, complexity, nuance, musicianship, or sincerity, but only the finished work of Christ makes our offerings of worship acceptable in God's eyes.

Lauren Chandler: The Narrow Place

image

One of my favorite aspects of friendship occurs when I have known someone as a incredible person, and only later found out the individual's immense talent.

Lauren Chandler is one of those people.

Lauren does an incredible job of lyrically painting encouragement to her listeners to rely in the Lord in the midst of trial. She has definitely earned the right to portray these words so vividly.

Sonically, her voice is so smooth and the players are fantastic at building the song and not overdoing it.

With this first EP, The Narrow Place, now available for all to listen, these worshipful lyrics, great songs, and incredible musicians have cooked up an offering definitely worth lending your ear to.

  • After just about a two year wait, Paper Route's new record, "The Peace of Wild Things", is out today!

  • Chalk art done well is so beautiful. Andrew showed me the work of Dana Tanamachi yesterday and I have been thoroughly impressed while scrolling through. I love her "Brooklyn" work below.

  • Every major sporting event who offers an iOS app should take notes from the U.S. Open of Tennis. It was always super clear, every minute of the tournament was available to watch, and there were no commercials. Outside of the app, it was such an incredible final ... congrats to Andy Murray on winning your first grand slam.

  • On another sports-related note, I'm really glad for RGIII to have had an incredible first game as a Redskin. Sic 'em.

These weeks are flying by! Lacey is starting classes at her new school on Monday and I am so proud of how she is throwing every effort she has at this new job. (Super proud husband here.) I am helping her in the classroom today and I am excited to lead worship at Clairemont Emmanuel this weekend. Always fun to team up with my dad. Now, some links:

  • Have I already mentioned how pumped I am for the new Lakers roster? Dwight Howard on top of Kobe, Steve Nash, Ron Artest & Pao Gasol?! That photo is just ridiculous.

  • Keiran said it best: "Samsung owes Apple one Instagram." I'll probably never try to get in any legal battle with Apple.

  • Here is a great story FastCompany featured from my friend Bob's new book, Love Does. Check it out here.

  • The blood, sweat, and tears we have put into ZenCash are starting to pay off. Fun to have this feature released.

  • Everyone has been watching Charity: Water since they set the bar so high in conveying what they do as an organization with their media. They released a new home page this week and they definitely met the level of clarity and simplicity they've done so well with.

  • Holiday Matinee is not only a great blog, but they have the best mixes. Their August Mixtape is fantastic.

  • It is inspiring to get a glimpse into lives of people who craft things with their hands: thosewhomake.com

  • This week, two of my favorite companies (Evernote & Moleskine) announced they are combining forces. I carry both of them with me essentially everywhere I go to record notes, ideas, quotes, thoughts, etc. I am interested to see how this notebook turns out.
