Keith Green Popped My YouTube Cherry on my Hot4Jesus Blog

I've been blogging at Hot-For-Jesus Former Fundie for over 2 years... and never once have I embedded a YouTube link. I took pride in that fact. I thrive on writing original content and only use and abuse pics of Jesus and Hot Jesus Look-Alikes.

This last month, while hanging out with a fellow Former hardcore christian, we found ourselves tipsy and surfing the web for old-school Contemporary Christian Music albums while listening to the friend's old Keith Green CDs. "O Lord, You're Beautiful" came on and we started singing along. We continued to compare notes about favorite worship songs from the old days and my former Keith Green crush was revived.

And then - for my birthday - what should appear - but those very Keith Green CDs we had sung along to. I'm eternally grateful for friends like this who have left the faith and know what makes christians tick. It's refreshing to not have to explain what it was like to be baptized by immersion, what it was like to perform Jesus music, what it was like to stand by your faith ready to defend it to the death.

While writing today's Hot4Jesus post, I had "O Lord, You're Beautiful" spinning in the background. And then I realized... much as I'd like to just write about the Jesus music in my life - which is a difficult task to ask of myself - I felt I'd be doing an injustice to those unfamiliar with worship teams and the Jesus Movement and Keith Green if I didn't include his song in the post.

Hence - Keith Green's "O Lord, You're Beautiful" is embedded in my blog - and I have no regrets.
