We sat there, glued to our seats. This "special music" was really very "special". I for one, had never experienced anyone like Larry Norman.
He proceeded to sing songs about the Vietnam war, the Second Coming, racial prejudice in the church, Bible prophecy, and yes, even..........love songs and sex.
We were stunned. My world was rocked. It had never occurred to me for even one fleeting moment that you could be a Christian AND be culturally relevant. I stumbled to the lobby after the service and bought "Upon This Rock". I listened to nothing else for weeks.
So began my long "relationship" with Larry Norman. Little did I know that Sunday morning how strongly he and his music would weave in and out of my life.
