Spoken Word Monday: “Ready for Love” by Paris the Poet

Here’s a piece meditating on love. I enjoyed the contrast between the ways people typically think of waiting for romantic love and the need to receive the love of God offered in the gospel. Nice rhyme play throughout. I pray it encourages you!

Spoken Word Monday: “Woman at the Well”

Today’s piece interprets the Lord Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4. The poetry is from Student Life Creative (I couldn’t find the young woman’s name) and the cinematography is by Reidland Tucker. It’s a thoughtful and moving rendition and both the well and living water themes get modernized beautifully. Enjoy!

Spoken Word Monday: “Be Present” by Propaganda

I think this piece has ministered to me and challenged me more than any other spoken word piece I’ve every heard. It brings fresh challenge and opportunity now that we’re on the verge of moving back stateside and starting a new chapter of life. Brothers, let us take this to heart!

Spoken Word Monday: Omri’s “Wonderful Complexity”

Jonathan Edwards once wrote about the “admirable conjunction of diverse excellencies” that exist in Christ. I’ve always loved that phrase. It so well captures how Christ holds together in reconciled perfection many things that we difficult to hold together. This spoken word piece from Omri meditates on our Lord’s “Wonderful Complexity.”

It’s complex, but it’s beautiful.

Spoken Word Monday: “Life in Color” by Danielle Bennett

So, my man, Propaganda, turned me on to the poetry of Ms. Danielle Bennett (@missdbennett). I figured he was in part trying to rep the west coast a little bit, but I also figured he wouldn’t suggest anyone that was pretending. I finally got around to hearing Ms. Bennett and immediately appreciated her gift with words. There are spoken word artists who are more forceful or more intense. But this piece left me thinking there’s no artist more “colorful.” This is a perfect poem for a “blue Monday.” I hope it adds the color of happiness to your life!
