Random Thought of the Day

From my friend, Pastor/DJ Kenny Mitchell of Tribe Church:

"Spirit and Sound: the connection of the vertical and horizontal, where our world and God's world become intertwined. Sonic vibrations translated into Spiritual Power. "The ancient people of God knew of this connection. The horns were played before the battle, musicians were used to calm and bring healing, to fight evil spirits, to assist the prophets to hear the word of the Lord, to bring glory and honor to the one true God.In those days it was the Harp, Drum, Cymbal, and Horn. "Today, along with those instruments, are the Turntables, CD players, Drum Machines, Samplers and Computers. These are the tools of our modern day temple musicians. Except now there is no more temple fixed to one location. We are the temple. This temple is beyond any one city.

"Our temple is mobile, global, diverse in sight and sound. But God's Spirit is the same. God has given us modern ways to express and engage with ancient truths. Enter the DJ…" (2002)

His church is down the street from Xcel and AGM. We met a year or two ago and have collaborated on a number of projects since then. He DJ'd Xcel's Carnival last year, DJ'd the BG Square One breakfast, and produced the music for Get Real.
