I saw Michael Card in concert (a Worldserve fundraiser) last evening with friends.

…And why did there have to be thorny
Crown pressed upon His head
It should have been the royal one
Made of jewels and gold instead
It had to be a crown of thorns
Because in this life that we live
For all who seek to love
A thorn is all the world has to give
And why did it have to be
A heavy cross He was made to bear
And why did they nail His feet and hands
His love would have held Him there
It was a cross for on a cross
A thief was supposed to pay
And Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away…

(From the song Why) A Michael Card concert is more or less a religious experience; I love how the depth of his thoughtful lyrics takes my mind to a worshipful state. Excellent insights on Acts 10 as well, plus the thought-provoking line, “All true worship begins in the wilderness.” Still digesting that one, but am inclined to agree.
