How Big Small Can Be
I just ran across a very cool song. The band is 1000 Generations, and Relevant Magazine wrote a glowing review of the down-to-earth character of its members. You can listen to the song at their myspace site. I'm sure this will make it into one of my sermons sometime soon - maybe in the upcoming vision series.

And my cash could never end hunger,
But it will help someone to eat.
It may seem insignificant but lately,

It’s not hard to see its attribution.
A storm starts with just a drop of rain,
And it only takes one, one man to start a revolution!
So if it seems insignificant then maybe,
It’s just that we are prone to forget…
What if one person changes one person,
Is that worth the time?
What if one difference makes all the difference
And we start to find…
