An Old Dog and a new Trick (YouToo?)

Okay, I admit that I am about three or four decades behind; though my children would beg to differ–I am confident that they always believed I was the hippest and coolest dad ever. (Please pause while I stop choking and my children stop laughing.)

I’m so far behind that it takes a friend to teach me about some Irish band, their gospel roots (I had heard of this from another friend), and a mutual acquaintance (George Pendergrass) who was associated with the original recording of the song (that you will know well, I promise). He also has to summarize what happens on Jimmy Kimmel for me to have a clue. So with all this aside, check out the link through YouTube and watch until the end.

CHARIS hosts conversations of and about Churches of Christ. The website is intended to support education for Christian life and community through contemporary discussions and historical sources that variously witness to the gifts (“charis”) of God among Churches of Christ, especially their plea for visible unity among Christians through ongoing renewal and restoration of Scriptural beliefs and practices among God’s people.

The CHARIS website is supported by Abilene Christian University (Abilene, TX, USA), the Center for Heritage and Renewal in Spirituality (CHARIS) at ACU. The purpose of CHARIS at ACU is to seek God’s blessings for a healthy relationship between the Christian college/university – its faculty, staff, and students – and the church heritage that gives identity and meaning to such a school. This underlying concern for Christian colleges/universities, and their relationship to the churches, is reflected in the form and content of the CHARIS website.
