Congratulations to RahabtheJerichonite for winning the Shema Yisrael contest!

Last month, I announced a video contest, where the winner would receive a $50 gift card for making a video of my “Shema Yisrael” song off my new worship record, Lyrics of My Heart. This was the winning entry: RahabTheJerichonite

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
