I am very excited to announce the release of my new recording this fall! “TIME STANDS STILL” is an 8 song CD and Digital Release (Spirit and Song/OCP) that has a variety of styles. Many of these songs are designed for corporate worship and all of them come from an imperfectly lived life of contemplation. More information and samples of the recording are forth-coming. This past spring and summer was spent serving in many different faith communities doing missions of prayer, teaching and song. I continue to work on a book about the many ways God has “ruined” my plans (in a good way!) through decimating divine love! This fall, along with the new album release, there will be more preaching missions, concerts and producing new music for OCP. I am also working on constructing a new overdub studio. Most importantly, my wife Tammy and my three “kids” are doing great. God is faithful + Like you, we hope for the beatific vision, where “Time stands still and only love remains”. Peace to you and yours!
When I was a kid, summer meant I had “time”. Time to go to the movies (rarely), time to play more sports, time to watch the Andy Griffith Show (and The Dick Van Dyke Show – my favorite show of all time), and especially time to play/write music. Now summer means catch up on the work I didn’t get to during the Spring (because I was working) and time to do the work I planned on doing this summer. Work, work, work… that’s fine. It comes with being an adult. I have children that my wife Tammy and I want to provide for. And we have a dance studio – and these students become “our kids” in a way. We care for them and want to see them grow, mature and succeed. My ministry commitments used to be many and varied in the summer, thankfully THAT has slowed down. Now I spend a lot of time in the recording studio – as I did all of April and May. I look forward to some quiet time as well. Time to compose music, but more importantly – pray, be still, listen… stop do-ing.
I pray your summer is safe and holy. Pray for me too.
