Thoughts on "Tomorrow"

video
“You are constant like the morning, never failing, you’re the same…” This is the opening line of the song “Tomorrow”. This song was written (as many have been) in my little office on the 22nd floor of our apartment in Beijing, China. I was, and still am, reminded of a God who takes care of my life and that he gives us something to look forward to instead of dreading – tomorrow. He has given us 24 hours of every day to worship! Worship is a lifestyle, its what we’re wired to do! Whether you are facing financial hardship, frustrated in your job, or live is going well, He is never failing, and there is much to praise Him for!

Scripture references: Matthew 6:34, Psalm 113:3, Psalm 8:1-4, Genesis 1:16, Isaiah 55:9, John 10:28-29.

The Door in London

London marks the first city on THE DOOR's world tour. Mark Tedder was recently in England's capital city and met with friend and fellow worship leader Tim Hughes of HTB London.

After dropping off several copies of THE DOOR at a local church in China Town, Mark found time for a curry with sound technician Rich Bee and managed a quick tour of London's Christmas lights.

Cross Rhythms Review



Reviewed by Tony Cummings (Rated 9 out of 10)

"This is surely one of the most important worship releases for many a long year. The Colorado-based musicianary defied all the odds to get permission to record and film a worship event in Beijing, China, and not only that took the opportunity to bring on to the platform local musicians playing indigenous instruments never previously heard in a contemporary worship setting. It is those sections of the DVD and CD which are therefore the most fascinating with Tingting playing the yangqin, Cui Yang playing the guzheng and Hong Li playing the hulusi giving the music a haunting, other worldly quality which demands repeated listening. Not that Mr Tedder doesn't have an excellent band himself. He and his fellow musicians sing songs of faith and justice with passion and impressive musicianship while the poetry, read by Britain's Gerard Kelly, fits beautifully. I've no doubt that I'll be watching the DVD many times in coming years. If you've got a bit jaded in your attitude towards worship music, feeling that far too much originates from the Hillsong template, this groundbreaking album will surely re-engage your enthusiasm."
