I've had several people send this to me and so if you haven't seen it - here is Kris Allen leading worship in his home church. The footage shown is Little Rock, AR.
I'm sure if he would have sang this (and I wish he could have) - Simon and Randy would have been like "Dog - I don't get that song at ALL". "Bad song choice". One of my college friends told me her mom and Kris' mom are friends and that he had told his mom before he got to the final that he needed one more week there because he had been witnessing to Adam and felt like he needed just a little more time with him.
That's the kind of American Idol I can be proud of. No person is perfect and we should never idolize anyone but God because every human will let us down. Your pastor, Billy Graham, Beth Moore, Chris Tomlin, your Sunday School teacher - they are all sinners and come short of the glory of God. He alone is Holy.
I love this song by Addison Road "What do I know of Holy". As we struggle to understand the sadness in this world and we try to put God in a box and question him........we know NOTHING of His Holiness. We can't begin to understand Him.......we can only trust Him and know that His love is wider and deeper and higher than we can ever imagine.
