Love, Mercy and Grace

Sometimes it's good to pause and look back at the long, winding journey God likes to draw us on. This hymn is inspired by an old camp song of the same name, but I also keep coming back to the inspiring words from Amazing Grace: "Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come. It's grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home."

If you like this song and would like to buy it for your congregation to sing together, look to the right here on the blog for the individual songs form. Thanks and enjoy!

In time for Lent - When Jesus Walked the Wilderness

This is a hymn that tells the story of Jesus' time in the wilderness. It was a time away from people where he fasted for 40 days and was tempted to use his power instead of trusting in God. All of us can face our own wilderness times and trust that Jesus has walked that road ahead of us and will continue to walk with us.

Want to sing it at your church? Look over to the right for info on how to buy sheet music for your congregation. Thanks for supporting good music & good theology!

I Lift Up My Eyes with the Carriage House Pickers

One of my favorite parts of writing this music is having the chance to sing it with a congregation as a part of worship. Last Sunday at Kittamaqundi Community, we got to do just that - this is me with the Carriage House Pickers, and our rendition of I Lift Up My Eyes, a song from the hymnal based on Psalm 121. The tune is based on Jesse James, for those who think it sounds familiar.

Please enjoy!

UCC General Synod in Baltimore

Hey everybody,

I'm excited for Synod, and if you're a UCC church nerd, much like myself, you probably are too. I'm extra excited because I'll be part of the worship team this year. Friday at the opening worship and again on Monday, we'll be singing "We'll All Stand Together," together as a whole national church. I am beyond thrilled whenever I wake up and realize it's REALLY happening. So, if you are in town for synod, please be sure to come to those services, and also, check me out "busking" in the convention center on Saturday morning after plenary lets out.

A link to Synod here, in case you're interested:

Here's a video of that song if you want to learn it ahead of time. :)
