I’m not a religious person by any means but last night (9/22), I saw Casting Crowns in concert. It was amazing!
I had not been to a concert since EOE in 2018. I didn’t go to any in 2019 and then covid hit. For a first concert since then, I’m glad it was CC. It could not have been any better. They did a good mix of their inspirational music combined with the religious stuff so it worked out and didn’t bother me.
I’ve been listening to them for 20 years (has it really been that long? That’s insane!). A friend got me into them when we were just 14. Even went to their Lifesong concert together.
I’ve seen Casting Crowns 5 or 6 times now. I found some old photos so the last time I saw them was in 2016!
Truly an amazing band, religious or not. They certainly helped me through a lot of my darkest times. So maybe it’s not about religion, maybe it’s that one song, that one group/artist, that can end up saving a life. They’ve certainly saved mine these past 20 years.
Shy and quiet reader. Shy and quiet writer.
Aside from being a fangirl, I am an avid reader to the extreme. I converted an old bedroom into a library so much of my time is spent in it. I read a variety of genres but my main genre is Non-Fiction and a sub-genre of Native American studies.
My top 3 books of all time:
- Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
- Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer
- The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
