Chris Renzema on the P&W Podcast

February 2nd, 2021 No comments

I caught up with Centricity Music singer/songwriter Chris Renzema on Groundhog Day: the perfect occasion for a conversation about seasons and learning how God works as we observe nature’s process! In 2020, he released the album “Let The Ground Rest”–and in 2021, he put out the “Let The Ground Rest B-sides” EP! Chris’ latest music is rich with lyrics encouraging listening hearts to hold on for the harvest. (The instrumentation, especially the strings, conveys that potential, too!) Chris and I talked about the standouts: “Springtime”, “Not Finished Yet”, “Tear My House Down” and the title track. He shared stories behind the songs, what he’s gotten out of his own music after its release and the thing that makes him feel like he’s having a good gig.

20/20 Insight-Beauty of a Flower

May 6th, 2020 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Vision, today’s 20/20 Insight focuses on the beauty of a flower and the brilliance of God’s glory.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:28, “See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.”

Flowers have their season when they burst forth in brilliant color and decorate our world with breathtaking beauty.  But they don’t last forever. Eventually, their beauty fades. That is one of the ways we are similar to a flower. We have a moment on earth that God has given to shine. Our most brilliant moments occur when we are fulfilling our God-given purpose to reflect His glory. This moment is our opportunity. This is our season to shine by sharing His grace, and standing for His truth.

Focusing on God’s glory gives us greater clarity for living out the Christian life.
