The year was 1971 and the song was Imagine. Though not a Beatles song, Imagine was John Lennon’s second solo album and included this song that he hoped would reach a large audience with his message and hope of love. The pages of scripture have echoed the same imagination of a world filled with love. That day will come but for now we are called to be the agents of God’s love. This week, Burke Perry will look closer at this theme and specifically the racial divide in our world today. Don’t miss the third week of Faith in Rock N Roll: The Beatles!
The year was 1970, it was the final album and the song was Let It Be. Paul McCartney inspired this song after a dream he had of this mother, Mary. Millions have been inspired by the song’s idea that good can come from hard times. This truth comes from the pages of the Bible and this week, Pastor Doug is going to look at this truth as we all go through our own kinds of struggles.
The year was 1965 and the song was Help! John Lennon said that this was one of his favorite albums because he wrote it at a time in his life when he really needed help.

This week, Pastor Doug is going to look at what God has to say on the subject of helping each other in times of need. Don’t miss the first week of Faith in Rock N Roll: The Beatles!
