>Twenty-eight years ago today, at the age of twenty-eight, on July twenty-eighth; Keith Green, his son Josiah, daughter Bethany, and a missionary couple and their children perished in a plane crash.

I vividly remember being in Kansas City, reading section three of the newspaper and seeing a little headline in the lower right hand corner of maybe page 3, “Christian Artist Killed In Plane Crash.”

I was stunned. Keith wrote music that ministered, rather than simply entertained. He wrote music that was Christ-centered, not Keith-centered. He wrote music that convicted rather than comforted.

If you are not familiar with him; get familiar (unless you want to subsist on a diet of typical “worship” cotton candy, fluffy junk) with him. Here’s a sample of his ministry…music/message:

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
