well, it’s been an interesting couple of days to see how people are reacting to the news breaking about the story behind the song Healer and it being a fraud. i’ve received more hits in these past two days on my blog than i could have ever thought about.
one thing i’ve been learning through the past couple days is that people actually do care and feel something about how this leader has used his platform so unfortunately. yes, we know the truth about who God is and that we should not esteem man higher than a song…those are credible words, but, from the comments on my blog in the past couple days it is clear that people have felt violated by this pretty sour lie.
if you’re interested, at all, on my thoughts on how i view it as a worship leader you’ve got to go over to my friend vicky beechings blog to see my response. my response is the first comment underneath her blog about it. if you don’t know vicky beeching, shame on you :), and you actually might know a few of her songs as they’ve been sung in churches/conferences around the world. she wrote songs like ‘Yesterday, Today and Forever’, ‘Captivated’ and ‘The Wonder of the Cross’. she’s a Brit, quite a Worship Leader and a dear friend. she’s also got herself a great blog going on. be sure to check it out. her blog header below will take you there!
