Andre Crouch: 1942 – 2015

I was sad to hear this week that Gospel music legend Andre Crouch has died.

As a former worship leader, and growing up in the seventies and eighties, Andre Crouch had a profound impact on my growing up.  (In fact, one of my favorite all-time songs to play was “Bless the Lord”… it was just… ‘cool’).

Andre’ wrote some great classic songs like “The Blood Will Never Lose It’s Power”, “My Tribute”, and “Soon and Very Soon”.

He also worked with Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Quincy Jones; and conducted the choirs that sang during the Michael Jackson song “Man in the Mirror”.

He earned seven Grammy Awards in his career.

I leave you with this… the lyrics to “The Blood Will Never Lose It’s Power”:

The blood that Jesus shed for me,
way back on Calvary;
the blood that gives me strength
from day to day,
it will never lose its power.

Chorus:
It reaches to the highest mountain,
it flows to the lowest valley;
the blood that gives me strength
from day to day,
it will never lose its power.

Verse 2:
It soothes my doubts and calms my fears,
and it dries all my tears;
the blood that gives me strength
from day to day,
it will never lose its power.

A closer look at the trends driving the growth of the unaffiliated may suggest that the trend is in part a result of those with a low religious commitment being more comfortable stating they are not religious, as those with that commitment level shifted by 9% toward unaffiliated. In addition, the overall growth of the nonreligious, including atheists and agnostics has grown from 10% of Americans to 23% of Americans.   Click here to get the full story.
