Episode 490: Matt Redman on the Truth and Sacred Mystery of Worship Music

Y’all. This one. Such a special conversation with my friend Matt Redman. I definitely cried at the end while I thanked him for years of music that have so deeply impacted me. We talk all about how to stir up mystery and reverence during our worship, the difference of Christianity between Western and Eastern cultures, and OF COURSE we talked about Matt’s latest album, Lamb of God, (which is just extraordinary). If you haven’t heard this album yet, you’re going to love it. And gosh, I wish we could have chatted for 3 more hours! I’m so grateful for Matt and the impact he has had in my life and in the world.
