the passing of a great american rocker

i read today that Larry Norman died over the weekend.  i grew up in a home where Norman's music could be heard often (along with singers like barry mcguire).  Larry Norman provided tunes for the soundtrack of the Jesus movement, a movement that has created the space for our generation to explore so freely the kingdom coming on earth as it is in heaven.

in recent years our friend Martyn Joseph covered a brilliant tune of Norman's, 'the great american novel' - you can see martyn perform the song here.  and you can see Larry performing the song here.

I, too, grew up in a home filled with the sounds of Larry Norman AND Barry McGuire, among others. Larry Norman was at the top of the list, though. Love his music!
