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".
If nothing else good should happen to us except salvation, it is enough to fill our every moment with His praise.

Slightly Obsessed #195: What Is the Apocalypse?
The Long Range Weather Forecast published by The Old Farmer’s Almanac 2017 accurately predicted a bitter winter last year, which dumped so much snow on the country that it inspired the Snowpocalypse festival in Milwaukee, Snowpocalypse survivor badges in Boise, and its own Twitter hashtag #snowmageddon. In keeping with our national compulsion to turn every personal victory or trial into a meme, we can now add -mageddon or -pocalypse to a catastrophe for an over-the-top event to post on our favorite social media outlet.
Slightly Obsessed #194 Heaven Is Calling: More than an Angel
The question is rhetorical, with God assuming the reader will understand that the answer is, “There is no angel whom the Lord has called His Son.” This passage is one meant to address the dilemma posed to the first century Christians, but it is one whom every person must answer in his own heart:
