(Joel, me, and Adam, our other brother in law who is the real hero).
Oh, you guys.
I had such a raw, beautiful, and spacious conversation with Joel Hanson, my brother in law (we married sisters), and former lead singer of PFR, one of the big Christian rock bands of the 90’s. He tells a lot of his story of pain and redemption. If there ever was a person who highlights the truth that we are human and holy, limited and limitless, it’s Joel. I love this guy.
Check out Joel’s records on iTunes.
Sing Your Name. This is the song that Joel wrote after being awoken in the middle of the night, hearing Someone whisper his name.
Pray for Rain. This is the song that broke PFR’s career.
Goldie’s Last Day. The title track to their second album. Such a unique sound.
Abba’s Child, by Brennan Manning is a book I’ve recommended before. It’s for all of us who are ashamed, feel unworthy, and who need to know God still pursues us anyway.
Joel was kind enough to share his email in case you want to hire him to do a house concert, etc: jhanson (at) thedoor.org
