Did you know that the number of songs we play on Life 101.9 is kind of a mathematical calculation? The size of our playlist provides both variety AND familiarity in just the right proportions.

Concerts are different because we focus our attention on just one artist who has an hour or more to reach us with their music.

One of the things that make attending a concert such a unique spiritual experience is that you get to hear songs that may be unfamiliar to you, but songs that have a message that can touch your heart nonetheless. When Zach Williams performed at the Buchanan County Fair a few weeks ago, those who braved the heat and humidity not only heard his hit single “Chain Breaker” but many other selections from his album by the same name. There were a number of powerful songs of hope. Most of them were songs that have never been heard on Life 101.9.

It’ll happen again this month at the Jason Gray concert. Attendees will come expecting to hear from God and they won’t leave disappointed as they listen to familiar and unfamiliar music as well. (By the way, there’s still room for you and a guest but you need to RSVP to me soon at 319 213 7275.)

Often times we hear our listeners say that more often than not “the right song comes on the radio at just the right time”, so this begs the question: Does the right song come at just the right time at a concert? After all, it doesn’t have to be familiar to be “the right song.” I have found some of the most amazing God moments at concerts have come to me from a song that I had never heard before.

The next time you go to a concert, listen for the unfamiliar “golden nugget of truth” found in a new song. Perhaps it’s a song that you need to hear.

As the Psalmist wrote, “Sing to the Lord a new song. Sing to the Lord, all the earth!” Psalm 96:1

It is our joy to bring you music that changes lives but we can’t do it without you. Thanks in advance for supporting this unique ministry as the Lord leads.

Have a blessed August.
