It's like a live concert, from a distance

Shaun Groves is a hard-working man. He travels the country (the world, even) playing shows to crowds of 50 to 100 (or more, or less even). For someone who was once topping the Christian music charts, that may seem a demotion. But Shaun takes it all with great aplomb. He doesn't care so much about the music as what he gets to do when he takes a break from playing. He talks about Compassion.

By many measures, his talking about Compassion at his concerts has been a great success. People listen, and are moved to help out. They choose to sponsor a child - even the poor college students manage to find $32 a month they can give up. For this tireless work, Shaun definitely deserves some respect.

But that's not all, folks. You see, Shaun (for some reason) loves his fans (even those of us who don't have the sense God gave a mule when it comes to restraining ourselves from posting on certain topics). He talks to us crazy people on the internet, in actual two-way conversations. He treats us with respect. And he tries to give us all kinds of little goodies. Like his newest endeavor - SGTV.

Starting in the last few days, Shaun has been streaming live broadcasts of his concerts. He posts a small viewer on his blog the day of the concert, or you can go to www.Mogulus.com/SGTV to watch it on a larger screen. You get to hear him live nearly every night, and I understand that the camera even points at him and not a pretty lamp sometimes.

Shaun has some pretty good music that he's made over the last few years; more importantly he has some good things to say. Worth listening to and thinking over, at the very least. Go check out his next show. And if you haven't already, consider getting involved with Compassion or another group (read about some others on Inspired to Action).
