Pete Wilson, senior pastor of Cross Point Church in Nashville, Tennessee, is reporting on his blog that famed lead guitarist of Poison, C.C. DeVille, has become a Christian and is seeking ways to grow. Pete has been given access to DeVille and is giving him pastoral counsel, etc. (he now calls himself the unofficial pastor to Poison--I'm jealous.)

This is pretty cool on a number of fronts. During my high school days, I worshipped rock groups, most notably folks like Def Leppard, Ratt, Motley Crew, Van Halen, etc.,--basically what are now known as 'the hair bands.' My family can verify that my room was basically a shrine. Poison wasn't among the groups that I worshiped, but I did like some of their music such as "Give Me Something To Believe In" and "Every Rose Has It's Thorn" (which I still quote almost weekly).
For a while after my conversion, I had to get away from all this music b/c it represented my rebellion from Christ. Now, I can go back and listen to some of it and actually, really, enjoy it. I know, for some of you that is just too much....
At any rate, pray for C.C. DeVille. This is a huge step he has taken in a very unforgiving arena. And pray for his pastor, too.
