This week we talk to Joel Houston of Hillsong United about the band’s new album, Zion. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes charts this past week, so if you haven’t picked it up yet, you definitely need to get on your game! We also bring in our editors to take a look inside the very special 10-year anniversary issue of RELEVANT. The issue features Tony Hale of Arrested Development and Veep, along with numerous others like The Lumineers, Rick Warren, Mark Burnett & Roma Downey, Michael Gungor and Jon Foreman. Oh, and we listen to some singing goats, so you also have that to look forward to!

If you could go 10 years back in time and redo the first cover of RELEVANT, what would you do?

Take a trip back to March of 2003 when the very first issue of RELEVANT was published. Imagine yourself back then – what were you into? What kinds of things were you thinking about? What were you listening to, or reading, or watching? With that in mind, we want you to recreate the first cover of RELEVANT and tell us what it would have been.
