Not so Speechless

I don't know how many of you follow American Idol faithfully (or not so faithfully). I watch it from time to time. I happened to catch this past Wednesday's episode, and was FLOORED when they closed with "Shout to the Lord." I did notice the change from "Jesus" to "Shepherd", but was still absolutely amazed that NBC had aired it......

Apparently, there were enough complaints........ but wait, not about the song itself, but about the OMISSION of Jesus' name!!..... NBC aired it again... American Idol started Thursday's show with "Shout to the Lord" sung with Jesus' name included!!

This should be a good testimony to the ones that say our voice doesn't matter.... Stop being quiet. It made a difference Wednesday night.... You never know what else your voice and opinion can change.

Amen amen amen!! I heard about this on FLN and couldn't believe it - how awesome!
Last year's finale had a Christian song too! and last night's desperate housewives focused on church attendence and finding a relationship with God - woo hoo!!!! PTL!
