GoBible fits in pocket

What makes the Original GoBible device unique is that no other audio version of the Bible anywhere takes the audio down to the verse level. All current recordings of the Bible break down the listening option to the chapter level. We understand that people talk about, think about and study the Bible at the verse level. Therefore, we have cut the audio to the verse level and indexed it so you may search for and begin play at any verse point in the Bible. This has never been done before with the audio version of the Bible and the Original GoBible is the only device in the world with this feature!

Rexband – Jesus Youth Songs

Rexband – Jesus Youth Songs

Over 25 professionals active in various fields with a distinctive talent in music and theatre dare to call themselves the Rexband – composing Jesus Youth Songs – in honour of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Experiencing the joy of liberating Christian music themselves, the band came together with a commitment to take this gift of quality Contemporary Christian Music and its message to the new generation. Evolving out of a life-changing encounter with Jesus through the Jesus Youth movement, the band members are comfortable in using styles of the younger generation to reach out to today’s urbanized youth through music albums, stage shows and encounter programmes.

With musicians from varied backgrounds like Indian classical or western classical to rock, pop and R&B, the band has managed to evolve a unique style over the past ten years. A style that has opened up exciting ethnic influences in Contemporary Christian Music in India.

Besides the 3-hour stage shows, the band also considers its retreats for musicians, music skill development programmes for budding talents and life encounter programmes as vital elements of its call. Rexband strongly believes that music becomes relevant only when its quality and message brings about a genuine change of heart. The typical 3-hour Rexband show is an extravaganza integrating music, choreography and contemporary theatre performances by Living Vision, a premier Christian theatre initiative. It works in tandem with the band to present the message of Jesus in a powerful and attractive way.

Sydney has never seen anything like it since the Olympics. Not even that event, however, could match the spectacle of a papal ‘boatacade’ gliding past the bridge and the opera house to deliver Pope Benedict into the cheering embrace of 200,000 young people from around the world.

The Pope’s arrival at World Youth Day had a theatrical quality worthy of the media world in which today’s young people live. By contrast, his message to them was delivered in a self-effacing, direct manner, making clear that the Pope refuses to cast himself as a rock star; he is a teacher and he set about teaching. The young listened with great respect, some closing their eyes, concentrating deeply on his words. He commended to them the care of the planet that he had flown over, inviting them to live by the values of truth, beauty and goodness as the way to heal the scars not only of our planet but also of our souls. Cries of delight erupted as the Pope concluded by greeting the different language groups. The final singing of the World Youth Day anthem, Receive the Power of the Holy Spirit, had the crowd in full voice, hands lifted high and swaying gently in time with the simple alleluia of the chorus, all nationalities united in one word and one gesture.

You would have to be hard hearted not to be moved by so many young people singing their hearts out affirming their acceptance of the Pope’s demanding invitation to follow Christ. Yet hard hearted is exactly the quality that has characterised the Australian media coverage leading up to the event. The city’s leading daily, the Sydney Morning Herald, has for weeks been pursuing an agenda highlighting the civic disruption, the cost to the taxpayer and a whole host of local concerns summed up in the headline ‘The Stations of the Very Cross.’ In parallel, the national TV channel, ABC, led a concerted attack on Cardinal Pell, with ‘Lateline’ (think Newsnight) running negative stories about his alleged mishandling of cases of clerical abuse. All the perpetrators had gone to jail but the Cardinal was still in the firing line from the victims or their families. Insensitive remarks by church spokesmen prolonged the agony. This coverage had become so negative by the weekend before the Pope’s arrival, that The Australian ran a leading article saying that the Sydney Morning Herald and the ABC were guilty of ‘squalid myopia’, urging Australians to be proud of hosting WYD in Sydney. Surprisingly, the BBC correspondent in Australia appears to be following the ABC agenda, so BBC reports are heavily weighted towards the clerical abuse agenda. Stunning images of joyful young people lining Sydney harbour were accompanied by a commentary on clerical abuse.

The Sydneysiders themselves have greeted the young with warmth and delight, so eventually the Sydney Morning Herald has run feel good headlines. But the experience of those of us simultaneously watching the events and the media is not just how different the reports are to the event. Rather, I am left with a feeling that while the young are full of energetic hope, bringing soul to one of the world’s great cities, the Australian hierarchy is struggling to cope with its detractors. The Pope will sail through this but how will the local church be when the Pope and the pilgrims have left? The youth will have been deeply affirmed in their faith, for sure, and I pray that the same will be true for the Australian Catholic Church.

The media in Australia, hate what they cannot control and influence. Media, the world over, know the press gives power. That is why the rich own papers and T.V stations. The press lose control when the faityhful gather at events like WYD. They press don’t set the adenda, and so they attack.

Generally the media is quite anti-Christianity, particularly  Catholics or Evangelicals. I don’t know if its secular institutional bias or market forces: sex sells! I mean who cares about the thousands in Burma, Zimbabwe or Iraq surviving on church provision? And true to form, the world-wide media have ignored this  WYD event. Google, had one, only one entry on this event, and it led with the BBC lead line about clerical abuse.

Seems no one wants to hear “good news” these days. Maybe because the “Good News” is counter-cultural.
