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".
Find the GOLD in people. If you only see fault, error, wrongs, sins, and what is bad, in people, then you have no time to love them. You cannot judge people and love people, at the same time, which is why the Word of God instructs us to look for what is good in people. When we look for the good, in people, we are choosing to see people through the eyes of God.
Slightly Obsessed #212: Believe
Sometimes it feels like just getting out of bed sets us up for defeat. But we shouldn’t be surprised. God clued us in thousands of years ago in the book of Job when He warned us that we are born for trouble as surely as sparks from a fire will fly up into the sky.

Darkness is God’s secret place, where He fashions a new creation away from the prying eyes of His enemies. In the chrysalis of the closet, He plans and weaves and forms His beloved into something that will burst forth with joy at the proper season.
Slightly Obsessed #210: Arise
A few short moments taken to restore a woman to health had kept Jesus from the bedside of a girl who lay dying. Messengers arrived with the news that Jairus’ little daughter was dead, striking fear in his heart as they destroyed the hope to which he clung.

An ancient king faced certain destruction as enemy warriors amassed before him in a surprise attack. His response is our answer for the trials that threaten to destroy us today.
Slightly Obsessed #208: Scorched by Trial
In the gray dawn of another day, I am spent. I can pray no more. There are no more words I can say, no entreaty with which to reach my Master. As the night shadows fade before the rising sun, I open my Bible. In the space between darkness and light, I need to hear His voice.
