In a previous summer I was actually nicknamed ‘Steven Curtis Chapman’ for my incredible possibilities as a Christian musician. hahaha. it really was a joke and my fellow staff team at Forest Home would break out in various choruses of Steven Curtis Chapman songs at the most random times to remind me of who I could potentially be one day. It never failed that the chorus ‘saddle up your horses’ from ‘The Great Adventure’ would be the chorus they’d remind me of so often. oh the great old days of SCC!!!!
The reality is that whether you like Steven Curtis Chapman, moreover his music, he seems to be an incredible guy and has had quite a successful career through his music and ministry. I know many friends in the Christian music industry and I know quite a few that know him personally and I have yet to hear an ill word spoken about him to the day. His integrity proceeds him in so many ways. so you can call me Steven Curtis all day long…if that’s what it could mean for me!! 🙂
Tonight, he and his family were on Larry King Live to talk about the tragic loss of their youngest adopted daughter Maria Sue Chapman after her older brother will, accidently, hit her in his SUV. It’s a painful thing to even think about the kind of loss that they are experiencing, let alone to be living in the middle of it.
I think they did a fantastic job of representing the Kingdom of God in their interviews. here is their blog and a video of the little girl that they loved and that the world has grown to love. she seemed to have had such a beautiful freedom in who she was as a little one. One thing is true, already, they are continuing to use the platform God has given them, even in the midst of adversity, to be Kingdom Agents!
