3 Reasons Why A dcTalk Reunion Is A Bad Idea by Kevin Thorson on 2013-04-13 10:23:13
Obviously this is not something that Jesus Freaks would probably agree with, but hear me out. I've come up with three pretty good arguments as to why dcTalk getting back together is not a good idea. In fact it really would be a bad idea.
DcTalk fans have been waiting for years for a reunion of Christian music titans Tait, Max, and Toby but it has just continually failed to happen. Even after attempts by fans to get them back together through multiple Facebook pages and Twitter accounts every desperate try has fallen short. I used to agree with a reunion and even hoped for it by following or liking a lot of these pages/accounts but I've recently changed my mind.
While a new dcTalk album would be absolutely huge in the industry and would no doubt be extremely successful, I still think it would be an unwise choice. Maybe a one time reunion album sometime down the road could be fine but a full blown touring dcTalk, I don't think so. Unless they do it the way I am recommending which is even better. I'll let you in on that later, but first my three reasons for not bringing the group back together. My three reasons are actually extremely simple and quick.
#1 Reason - Michael Tait is in a band called Newsboys which releases amazing music on their own.
#2 Reason - Kevin Max is in a band called Audio Adrenaline which releases amazing music on their own.
#3 Reason - Tobymac has his own band and releases amazing music on his own.
See it's that simple. If it were dcTalk we would get just one amazing album every two maybe three years. No thanks. I'll take the three. But don't be too sad Jesus Freaks because what I'm recommending or begging for is a dcTalk tour via Newsboys, Audio A, and Tobymac. Wouldn't it make for an incredible short term tour. Play a few cities together, tape one of them live, sell it on blu-ray billed as the dcTalk "Reunion At Last".
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness as His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
Slightly Obsessed #219: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 3
Job's soul had been stripped completely down to the dirt. His friends accused him; he defended himself vigorously. Lost in the cacophony was the voice of God. No one seemed to notice.
Except for one.
Slightly Obsessed #218: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 2
The book of Job is one of the few glimpses given mankind behind the veil into the interaction between God and his created beings. And the revelation is an astounding one. Not only is Satan not in hell, he has access to both heaven and earth.
Slightly Obsessed #217: When the Hedge Comes Down
When we are in the fire, it’s easy to ask God, “Why?” It doesn’t hurt to ask that question, to examine our own hearts. If we can find no explanation for the trial, it’s possible that another drama is being played out behind the scenes.
Slightly Obsessed #216: Daddy Has You
As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
Slightly Obsessed #215: Sunday School Had It Right
A Ugandan friend once told us that growing up in Sunday school, he quickly learned how to answer the Bible questions in class. “The right answer,” he said with a smile, “is always, ‘Jesus.’" As a child, no matter what question was posed in class, he always answered, “Jesus.”
