So, the verdicts in...I did a horrible job predicting the songs lifechurch.tv would use for it's 4 songs for Mixtape, a sermon series where each week's sermon was based on a diffrent hit song.
The first week the song was current but not hot...U2's newest single Window in the Skies.
The second week's sermon used the song How To Save A Life by the Fray. Definitly hot, even though released on a 2005 album.
The third week song was 1960s classic "Turn Turn Turn!" (so definitly more golden hot than firey hot)
The forth song was so new and hot it wasn't even on my radar when I made my predictions.
Chris Spradlin, campus pastor of the Oklahoma City campus used the song "The River" by Good Charlotte off the album Good Morning Revival which was released last tuesday (March 27, 2007). Spradlin used the parable of the Prodigal Son to teach his messages.
Although this song was not on my list, it was my favorite song selection. Here's an except of the song.
“I’ve seen a vision of my life and I wanna be delivered. In the city was a sinner, I’ve done a lot of things wrong, But I swear I’m a believer. Like the prodigal son, I was out on my own, now I’m trying to find my way back home” - From The River by Good Charlotte
