Punk rock hymns to support Christians in Syria!
 
Hey all. You should read this article:

The unbroken circle: Former monk records punk hymns for Syria

Justin Marler, a former atheist/non-Christian/secular whateveryouwannacall him metalhead who was incredibly successful, and who came to Christ through some soul searching that led to him entering an Orthodox monastery, and who now lives in Austin, TX, has released a an album full of amazing punk hymns. Proceeds from album sales are to be donated to the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Bosra-Hauran in southern Syria (it actually runs through the disputed Golan Heights border with Israel, which is one of the problems they face as a church community), under the authority of Archbishop SABA. Most (something like 90%) of those who claim the name of Christian in Syria belong to the Antiochian Orthodox Church, and Marler himself attends an Antiochian church in Austin, St. Elias', that has a lot of people from Syria - as he says in the article, he's just a handshake away from someone who knows someone who has really suffered for Christ. These folks are doing their best to minister to the spiritual needs of their congregations who remain in Syria, pay their clergy and their families, reach out to their neighbors through running a kindergarten for little children (most of whom aren't Christian), and provide medical care to all who need, and food boxes to those who are in most dire need of nutrition.

(Also cool: these folks trace their origins back to the evangelization of St. Timon, one of the seven Deacons chosen by the Apostles in Acts 6:5)

Anyway, there are samples of the album linked in the above article - you can buy the album on iTunes - just search for "Hymns for the Apocalypse". If you'd prefer to order a hard copy, you can do so here.

The album's pretty awesome, you won't regret buying it and it's for a good cause.

Here's the link to read about the program through with the proceeds will be donated to our brothers and sisters in Bosra-Hauran.

Thanks for reading!
