ApX Inspires Fan Who Then Inspires ApX

Although we give God all the glory for any inspiration we have, we think it's a really neat thing when fans tell us our music has inspired them, because that inspires us! This email we received yesterday is a prime example:
I love the new songs! I thought I should reply to tell you how much of a role your songs have played for me. I was inspired a few years ago when reading one of your newsletter intros to go through a one-year reading plan of the Bible -- what an experience! O.K., Wall Street, you can keep Morgan Stanley; we'll take Morgan Stephens!
I've done it a couple times since, and whenever I come across a passage or story that's in one of your songs, the sometimes dry translations come alive and become memorable to me (I also breezed through an infamous test on the kings at my alma mater because I had "Good Guys, Bad Guys" memorized).
Your mixture of rock music, puns, and God's Word are perfectly suited to my tastes -- you've been my favorite band for about 15 years (half my life now).
The songs you guys have put out the last couple years have been some of your best yet; "Leviticus Can't Be Done" and "Doubt is Not Allowed" are some all time favorites. Just wanted to encourage you in your ministry and say I look forward to what you do in the future. At this rate, I'm worried you'll run out of classic rock songs!
Anyway, thanks for being the blessing you have been to those who listen to your music. I hope you and your family have a very merry Christmas : )
P.S. I've hoped for parodies of "Baba O'Riley" and "Brown Sugar" for awhile — can't wait to see who's next ;)
