Episode 405 - Postcards From Babylon with Brian Zahnd, David & Kathi PetersPCFB-Movie-poster-low-res-1-scaled-1-807x453.jpg

Postcards From Babylon is a long-form documentary featuring author and pastor, Brian Zahnd, as he investigates possibly the most important question for the church in North America today:

 

How does the church stay faithful to the beautiful way of Jesus while situated in one of the most divisive political climates in our nation's history?

The film explores how Christians seeking proximity to power has led to a hyperpartisan Nationalistic posture that is demonstrably hindering the witness of Christ.

As exiled citizens of a superpower nation, Christians' deepest allegiance must be to the peaceful Kingdom of God, and from that posture they must always speak truth to power...no matter the cost.

Born out of Redeemer Baptist Church in Olive Branch, Mississippi, our desire for those we have the opportunity to minister to is the same as our desire for our own congregations:  to sing songs with deep gospel roots that help people to see the glory of the risen Christ.  Every opportunity to lead others is met with this calling, and we would love to partner with your church or organization in ministry.

400th Episode with Phil Keaggy

400th Episode with Phil Keaggy

400th MEGA-Episode with Phil Keaggy 

Phil-Keaggy-Promo-Pic-2_smaller.jpg

Welcome back to Voices In My Head. Today is our 400th episode celebration and because this is a special episode, I wanted to invite a guest on the show who means a lot to me personally. Phil Keaggy is not only one of the most admired guitarists in music today, he is also a person of humility, generosity, and integrity who has used his art to share the love of God around the world.

Phil is such a talented guitarist, that most of us who play guitar would be happy if we were able to play his mistakes as well as he does. From beginning guitarists, to music industry professionals, nearly everyone who has held a guitar pick owes a debt of gratitude to Phil Keaggy for giving us something to aspire to with our playing and in our walk with God.

It’s my pleasure to welcome Phil back to our show today so we can discuss some of his favorite musical moments in a career that has spanned over 55 years.

About Church Music Makers

We are all church music makers. We may be in big congregations, small congregations, congregations with minimal resources, congregations with many resources. We may be organists, choir directors, guitar players, drummers, singers, whatever the case is, this blog is for all of us!

Church Music Makers is written by Craig Harmann, a pastor’s kid, who started playing the piano at 5, playing preservice Christmas Eve piano pieces in 2nd grade, playing the trumpet in 5th grade (and playing for worship not too far after…badly), playing the organ in 7th grade (and playing for Good Friday worship in 8th grade). Craig has served full time as a high school choir director, religion teacher and wind ensemble director, director of music, youth and family ministries, classroom elementary general music teacher, director of music, private lesson instructor and roving substitute musician, as well as currently serving part-time at St. Timothy Lutheran Church and teaching middle school and high school choir at Northland Christian School in Houston, Texas.

Hymn For The 81% with guest Daniel Deitrich - Episode 398 

Dan_00029cropped_half.jpgmaxresdefault.jpg

On January 21st, 2020, Religion News Service posted an article written by Shane Claiborne that said,

“A lot of contemporary worship music doesn’t offer the best theology, but 'Hymn for the 81%,' by a South Bend, Indiana, worship leader, has gone viral with a cocktail of prophetic fire and Christ-like grace.”

Daniel Deitrich, who wrote and performed Hymn For The 81% is a singer/songwriter based in South Bend, Indiana. His honest, heartbreaking, yet hopeful writing finds a home in massive Americana anthems, catchy Indie rock hooks, as well as intimate acoustic confessionals.

William Willimon: The Gospel For The Person Who Has Everything - Episode 397 

Cover of Will Willimon's reissued book The Gospel for the Person Who Has EverythingWillimon

In his book, the Gospel for the Person who has everything, Bishop William Willimon brings the Gospel of Jesus Christ to life for the person who has everything – happy, fulfilled human beings, who don’t feel the same level of need expressed by the downcast, the outcast, the brokenhearted, and the miserable. Willimon says that the church’s message to the wretched and sad must not exclude the strong and the joyous. Paraclete Press has just released a brand new edition of the Gospel For The Person Who Has Everything, and Bishop Willimon stopped by for a visit so we can talk about it.

The Life She Once Knew with Vanna Nguyen & Anna Donato - Episode 396 

about-vanna.jpg

Disclaimer:

Today’s episode, while ultimately about faith and forgiveness, contains mature themes dealing with sexual assault so please use your discretion.

 

In 1981, a mother faced death as she lay on the floor of a small boat in the South China Sea fleeing for her life after the Vietnam War.

In 2008, her daughter lay awaiting death after being brutally raped and beaten while returning books at the Bloomingdale Regional Library.

The brutal attack against Queena left her with a traumatic brain injury and the inability to walk, see, or speak. While Vanna Nguyen poured herself into helping her severely disabled daughter after the attack, she also struggled with reliving her own history, and more so, with how to forgive the young man who hit her daughter so forcefully that he cracked her skull, stole her daughter’s innocence, took away her daughter’s future, and changed both their lives forever.

In her new book, The Life She Once Knew, (Published by Ambassador International) Vanna Nguyen speaks candidly about faith, love, and forgiveness through hard times and chronicles the deeply emotional and powerful journeys of these two women as they fight for their lives and their futures decades apart.

Guest Caroline Cobb - Episode 394 

Caroline_Cobb_smaller9sfp1.jpgA_Seed_A_Sunrise_album_cover_smaller924co.jpg

CAROLINE COBB SHORT BIO:

In 2011, singer-songwriter Caroline Cobb gave herself a goal to write a song for every book of the Bible in a year. That year of writing set in motion a passion to tell the stories of scripture through music, with imagination, artistry and faithfulness to the text. 

 

Caroline’s forthcoming album, A Seed, A Sunrise, explores the longing hope of Advent, the joy of Christmas and the anticipation of Christ’s return. Produced by Isaac Wardell (Josh Garells, Sandra McCracken) and featuring gospel trio Resound and a fourteen-piece string orchestra, these songs are rich with biblical truth, artful arrangements, and poetic lyrics to help the Church rehearse and remember God’s Story. The new album builds on Caroline’s previous full-length projects the Blood + the Breath (2013) and a Home & a Hunger (2017). Both traced a biblical theme from creation to Christ’s return, with every song parachuting into a different biblical scene.

 

Caroline has been featured by The Gospel Coalition, Doxology & Theology, Risen Motherhood and more, with a Home & a Hunger named among the “Best Albums of the 2010s” by The Gospel Coalition. She has been compared to Rich Mullins, Andrew Peterson, Sandra McCracken and Ellie Holcomb. She and her husband live in Dallas, TX with their three children Ellie, Harrison and Libby.

Standing on the Wall 

Prayers to Preserve the Integrity of a Nation 

A New Book by Jannah Scott 

Standing on the Wall is a heart-felt manifestation of the sincere prayers of intercessors who have committed their lives to pray for the United States of America. The book focuses on prayers that each person can pray as we seek peace, prosperity and preservation for our Nation, its leaders and its people. 

Filled with prayers founded in the Word of God and reflecting upon the US Constitution, this book is a way to express to God that we acknowledge His omniscience and omnipresence in our history, our lives and our future. It is the author’s hope that people all over the country use this book to pray for the integrity of this great Nation to be preserved.

For Love of Neighbor: Politics For The Common Good - Episode 392 

For_Love_of_Neighbor_Graphic68by8.jpg

https://faithandpubliclife.com/flon/

A documentary film, For Love of Neighbor: Politics for the Common Good, tells the stories of three individuals—Sen. Tim Scott, Justin Giboney, and Sarah Imboden—who, on different levels and in distinct ways, are seeking to engage faithfully in contemporary American politics.

The film does not provide specific answers for how Christians should engage in politics: such as who they should vote for or what specific policies they should support. Instead, it explores foundational questions about the purpose (and limits) of politics and the proper Christian posture toward government and secular society. Ultimately, the film aims to spark further discussion and offer a hopeful vision for Christian participation in contemporary public life.

On October 2nd, 2020, The new film “The Order of Rights” releases on Amazon, Google, and VUDU streaming platforms. The title of the film, "Order of Rights" refers to the order in which the categories of rights are listed in that Declaration of Independence: Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of happiness.

Even as Ethan tries to help her, Emma decides to go ahead with terminating the pregnancy. Ethan and his family file a lawsuit on behalf of the child’s right to life, and their story moves to prominence as a nationally publicized court case. The court has to decide whether the child in Emma’s womb is a person or not and if so if it is endowed with the inalienable rights as enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.

Fred Rogers Speaks- Episode 387

It has been one of those weeks you never thought would come. A house fire at my parents place, sewer backup flooding my own house, migraines, and power outages. Not even to mention the Pandemic, Presidential election craziness, and life as a teacher/online school parent/worship pastor. I needed to hear from a calm voices this week so I brought a dear old friend on the show today, the late great Fred Rogers. Listen in and open your heart to receive calming words of help this week on Voices In My Head.

Where Goodness Still Grows with guest Amy Peterson- Episode 386

WhereGoodnessStillGrows_CVR_rev.jpg0027.jpg

Social media and recent political events have exposed the fault lines that exist within our country and our spiritual communities. The corruption and blind spots of the evangelical church have led to the departure of so many from faith, who cite hypocrisy and partisanship as reasons they can’t stay. Chillingly, many of the virtues that we believed were a central piece of our religious heritage—including kindness, purity, modesty, hospitality, and faithfulness—have been hijacked and used for political or cultural gain.

But all is not lost. My guest today, Author Amy Peterson, wants to reimagine virtue as a tool, not a weapon; as wild, not tame; as embodied, not written. As someone intimately familiar with, fond of, and also deeply critical of the world of conservative evangelicalism, Amy dissects the moral code of American evangelicalism and re-examines what it really means to be faithful in the modern world.

Her latest book, Where Goodness Still Grows, traces the virtues from their original meanings and imagines what it could look like for us to embrace and celebrate them today. Where Goodness Still Grows is more than a book. It is a thoughtful, poetic, and deeply powerful call to reclaim our faith and it’s a book I deeply needed in 2020.

- Episode 385

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Ernest p. Worrell, the lovable blue-collar buffoon, was a staple of pop culture in countless commercials, nearly a dozen movies and an award-winning Saturday-morning TV show called, Hey Vern, It’s Ernest. Today, millions of fans still mourn the loss of actor Jim Varney, who portrayed Ernest and who died of cancer at age 50 in the year  2000. In the book The Importance of Being Ernest: The Life of Actor Jim Varney, Jim’s nephew Justin Lloyd has created a comprehensive biography that fans were waiting for. The book traces Jim’s journey from a child in Lexington, Kentucky, with dreams of being a stage and film actor to becoming an iconic entertainment figure. The Importance of Being Ernest has now inspired a forthcoming Documentary about the life of Jim Varney.

Justin Lloyd, the book’s author and nephew of Jim Varney has stopped by for a visit today.

Lucas and Evelyn Cortazio - Episode 384

image002.jpg

Rooted in Chicago’s Community Christian Church, pastored by Dave Ferguson, Community Music is comprised of worship leaders from the church’s 11 campuses. Led by Brazilian-born husband/wife team Lucas and Evelyn Cortazio since 2013, the collective is closely aligned with NewThing, a church planting network created by Community Christian Church representing more than 3000 congregations internationally. The Cortazios and Community Music lead worship annually at the Exponential Conference, and also host songwriting workshops for worship leaders from across the country and around the world.
 
“Community Music exists to help people find their way back to God by creating a worship culture that goes beyond songs and Sundays,” explains Lucas Cortazio. “This begins at our churches in Chicago, but extends across the globe through our partnership with the NewThing network. Evelyn and I believe our main assignment in this mission is to link worshippers together from all tribes and tongues. We do this by connecting, empowering and creating platforms for other worship leaders to stand on both locally and globally.”

Guest Preacher William H. Willimon - Episode 382

12418a_willimon_will004.jpg?w=684

Today on the podcast, I am pleased to welcome back Dr. William H. Willimon. Dr. Willimon served as the Dean of Duke Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry at Duke University for two decades. He returned to Duke after serving as Bishop of the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church from 2004 to 2012. He is the author of over 70 books and as you are about to hear today, he is also skilled preacher.

I asked Dr. Willimon back to Voices In My Head today because in July 12th of this year (2020) he preached a sermon at the Washington National Cathedral, and it just really resonated with me. I wanted to give my listeners a chance to hear the sermon, which speaks into our present moment of pandemic, white violence, and unrest and Dr. Willimon graciously agreed to let me share it today.

Saying No To God with Matthew J. Korpman - Episode 378

Saying 'NO' to God (with Mathew J. Korpman) — The Story Church Project

My guest today on Voices In My Head is Matthew J. Korpman. Matthew is a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church who has served as both a student pastor and chaplain within the denomination and has also served as a homilist for various parishes outside the denomination, including the Episcopal church. He holds three Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees in Theology, Archaeology, Philosophy, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Screenwriting, all from La Sierra University. In his new book Saying No to God: A Radical Approach to Reading the Bible Faithfully, Matthew makes the case that Blessed are those who defy God. Although bumper stickers abound that propose otherwise, the Bible itself reveals that just because “God says it,” does not, in fact, mean “that settles it.” On the contrary, Korpman contends that a close reading of Scripture reveals that God does not want us to blindly obey him, but rather, invites us to “lock hands” with him and fight. The purpose of this book is to show another way to understand the Bible, one in which readers are not asked to accept what God says, but on the contrary: to say no to it, not because they merely want to, but because the God of the Bible actually requires it.

A Jewish Conversation with Rabbi Cary Kozberg (Re-Release) - Episode 375

Pinchas: Zealotry or integrity? - The Dayton Jewish Observer

This week's episode of Voices In My Head was recorded live at temple Sholom in Springfield Ohio in 2017. Rabbi Cary Kozberg was gracious enough to sit down for a bit to discuss the things that we share in common as people of faith. It is our belief that in Judaism and Christianity there is a whole lot more that we share in common than what divides us. This is the first of what we hope will be many inter-faith dialogues between the Voices In My Head Podcast and of people of other faith. There is so much in this world that we can learn from each other, no matter how young or how old we are.

Bio for Cary Kozberg

Rabbi Cary Kozberg is currently serving as Rabbi of Temple Sholom in Springfield Ohio—the position he first held after his rabbinical ordination in 1977.

Rabbi Kozberg served as Director of Religious Life at Wexner Heritage Village, a senior residential care facility in Columbus, Ohio, from 1989 to 2015.

 

magna cum laude graduate of the University of Texas (Phi Beta Kappa), Rabbi Kozberg received his Masters of Hebrew Letters and Rabbinic Ordination from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati.  He served as Rabbi of Temple Sholom from 1977 to 1980, and then as of Beth Israel Congregation in Roanoke, VA from 1980 to 1982.

 

From 1982 to 1987, Rabbi Kozberg was the Hillel Director at the University of Texas in Austin, and then spent two years as a kibbutznik in Israel at Neve Ilan.

 

As Director of Religious Life for Wexner Heritage Village from 1989 to 2015, he developed and broadened religious and spiritual programming for both Jewish and non-Jewish residents, their families and staff, and worked to integrate spiritual values into WHV’s program of providing holistic care to older adults.  

 

He is a Board Certified Chaplain, and an active member of the National Association of Jewish chaplains, having received that organization’s “Chaplain of the Year” Award in 2012.

 

Rabbi Kozberg is a Past Chair of the Forum on Religion Spirituality and Aging, a constituent group of the American Society on Aging, and a past editor of FORSA’s quarterly newsletter. A published author and poet, he has presented workshops and seminars around the country, and is a nationally recognized resource on the spiritual, emotional, and psychological challenges that face older adults and their families.  His many publications include Honoring Broken Tablets: A Jewish Approach to Dementia (Jewish Lights Publishing), “The Whole World is Full of God’s Glory” in Broken Fragments: Jewish Experiences of Alzheimer’s Disease through Diagnosis, Adaptation, and Moving On, edited by Rabbi Douglas Kohn (URJ Press), and Flourishing In The Later Years: Jewish Pastoral Perspectives on Senior Residential Care, co-edited with Rabbi James Michaels (Mazo Publishing).  He has been an Instructor in the Florence Melton Adult Mini-School for Jewish Education in Columbus, and is a Past President of the Columbus Board of Rabbis.   As part of his commitment to healthy and sacred living, Rabbi Kozberg is committed to physical fitness and teaches personal self-defense techniques to children, teens and adults.

God and Hamilton with Guest Kevin Cloud  - Episode 374

GOD_HAMILTON_final.jpgKevinPhotoMF.jpeg

On July 3rd, Hamilton, featuring the original 2015 Broadway production of the smash hip-hop musical, releases on Disney+. Having captured the collective imagination of audiences across the globe, Hamilton has been woven into the cultural fabric of society, shedding light on issues such as immigration, gender equality, diversity, and race. But it has also raised deeply spiritual issues found throughout the life of Alexander Hamilton. 

 

The often forgotten and overlooked Founding Father, Hamilton, an orphan and immigrant from the Caribbean, impacted the government of the early republic as much as, if not more than, any other Founding Father. As Kevin Cloud, a pastor and author, details in his book, God and Hamilton: Spiritual Themes from the Life of Alexander Hamilton and the Broadway Musical He Inspired (Deep River Books), Hamilton’s life story serves as a lens through which we can learn more about God and our ourselves, with themes like grace, faith, shame, doubt, forgiveness, and ultimate redemption.

Royce Lovett - Episode 373

 THE VOICE -- "Blind Auditions" Episode 1702 -- Pictured: Royce ...

Royce Lovett has been making music since he was a kid in Tallahassee Florida.

Royce’s star has been steadily rising over the years, but his soothing-yet-gritty reggae/rock performances as a contestant on the last season of NBC’s The Voice made him a recognizable face around the nation. While The Voice viewers saw a distinctly reggae side of Royce, his albums are musically quite diverse, mixing rap, hip-hop, rock and reggae with a whole lot of soul.

I met Royce in 2018 at UTR Media’s Escape To The Lake Event near Chicago Illinois. I found his performance to be like nothing I had ever seen. His music and his message mesmerized every person in the audience that evening and to say the least, I wasn’t too surprised to see him on a national TV show like The Voice.

But it wasn’t just Royce’s voice that left an impression on me, it was his heart and the way that He allowed God to minister through him with the performance he gave. I would still classify it as one of the most meaningful live performances that I personally have experienced.

I invited Royce here today for two reasons, I love his music and I wanted a chance to showcase it on my show, but I also wanted to let him share from his heart as a black man, a parent, a son, and a person of faith living in the United States in 2020.

A Star Trek Conversation with Mike Poteet - Episode 372

Star Trek: The Original Series (TV Series 1966–1969) - IMDb 

On September 8, 1966, NBC aired the first episode of a new TV series about a starship on a five year mission of space exploration. That series was called, Star Trek. The first episode told of an endangered shape-shifting, salt-sucking alien posing as a human woman to lure prey to its lair. Over 50 years, nearly 1000 episodes, at least 8 spin-off series, and 13 movies later, we’ve yet to meet any shape shifting salt vampires in real life.
 
We have however seen a surprising number of ideas and technologies that appeared on the shows over the years have come to pass in the real world. We wanted to talk about some of those things as well and social and theological implications of the show.
 
Ministry Matters™ | Mike Poteet
Mike Poteet is a Presbyterian minister (PCUSA), currently serving the larger church as a curriculum writer. He, his wife, and their two children live near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

 Kerriphoto9idpb.jpg
 
Kerri Pomarolli is a national headlining standup comedian who has worked with everyone from Jay Leno, Jim Carrey, Sherri Shepherd, Carol Channing, and Jerry Lewis. She's been featured on The Tonight Show 29 times, Comedy Central, ABC and more. She is a popular TV host, actor, celebrity correspondent (Showbiz Tonight), currently writing films for the Hallmark Channel, and an “out of the closet” Christian in Hollywood.
 
As a sought-after comedian living in Hollywood, Kerri understands the pressure to keep up impossible standards and present a perfect image. In her book, Confessions of a Proverbs 32 Woman: How I Went from Messed Up to Blessed Up Without Changing a Single Thing (Harvest House Publishers), Kerri turns the notion of perfection on its head and bravely shares the messiness of her life in her trademark witty style.
 
She delves into the struggles of the modern woman tired of trying and failing to live up to Pinterest-looking, air-brushed, and Insta-filtered “real life” role models telling her she’s not quite good enough. Kerri discusses and encourages readers with two things they can hold onto for longer than their smartphone: genuine self-awareness and humble God-awareness.

Kevin King's Personal Testimony – May Christ Be All

 Grace_Worship-Christ_Be_All_Live_video_image.jpg Grace_worship_logo_BW_.jpg

 

Growing up a musician, many churches will quickly throw you up on their stage. Starting to “lead” worship when I was in college, I admittedly had no idea what I was doing, but, like a good performer, I could pretend pretty well.

            Going to grad school, I began to lead worship at a large budding church and got quickly caught up in the production of the worship event. I inadvertently learned that successful worship meant a successful “experience.” This way of worship leading produced a team of tired musicians and dry hearts.

            I began attending conferences with the “coolest” artists and found my heart swept up in the temptation to be in the “in crowd” - to be known, noticed, and admired. By what these conferences seemed to preach (or what I ended up hearing) was that if I had the right team, the right lights, the right songs, and enough fervor, we would get there. I didn’t really know where the “there” was, but I knew I should be going there. My heart now pines to tell every 20 something beginning their worship leading career that this well quickly runs dry.

When worship leaders look for the “quick fix” or the “answer” to effective worship leading, we have forgotten our true calling: to simply be an arrow that points the hungry heart to the all-satisfying Christ. We are not first production designers, rock stars, artists, or icons. We are under-shepherds under the Great Shepherd. Our game is a long game, and our calling is a slow one. We don’t coerce experiences. We shepherd hearts by the deep well of the Living Word. We lean in to those who criticize us. We love them warts and all. We model the compassion of our God who all day long holds out his hands to an obstinate people (Isaiah 65). What is our greatest resource in Worship Leading? It is the true and better Worship Leader who delights to will and work in us for his good pleasure (Phil 2).

As Grace Worship has approached this project, it has been a relief to continually sing and pray “let your grace my pride relieve,” as I learn to trust that Christ’s work is infinitely more effective than my own. It is a cathartic joy to refocus the goal of my heart from performer to worshiper. I will frequently feel the weight of responsibility that whispers to me, “Without you, this would all fall apart.” Oh how deceiving a thought that plays on my need to be needed, while causing me to work myself into the ground. It is the Friend of Sinners, who leads me beside still waters and restores my soul, that reminds me that my greatest joy in life is to be an empty vessel filled with Christ. And so I pray again today that Jesus would mercifully strike down the first Adam within me to make way for the Second. May Christ be all, and I be nothing.

Kurtis Parks - Episode 366

Image may contain: 1 person, beard

About Kurtis Parks:

Having written over 1,200 songs across several musical genres, Kurtis Parks has been a top 50 American Idol (fourth season) finalist, been featured on the Fox Morning Show, BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel Hour, and had his “Forever Changed” song (written for his beloved Virginia Tech community after the April 2007 tragedy) featured on NBC News and CNN. Sharing the stage with such well-known artists as John Mayer, Howie Day, Sanctus Real, Reliant K, Gungor, Ben Folds and many more, Parks’ worship choruses are also sung around the world in churches every weekend. Producing over 50 albums for various Christian artists nationwide and serving as worship director from 2010 to 2017 at Washington, DC-based National Community Church (NCC), Parks founded Bridges Nashville church in 2018 where he serves as lead pastor. He also released his first book in 2016, Sound Check, a book on authentic worship, as well as his first Kurtis Parks and Friends kids album, Story Songs from Scripture. Speaking, leading worship and preaching at conferences and festivals nationally, He and his wife Sarah are based in Nashville and have two children, Norah and Moses.

Worship team members from downtown Nashville, Tennessee-based Bridges Nashville church spent the week of March 23, 2020 recording video and audio from their respective homes for their new single "Jesus You Are" releasing today (Good Friday, April 10) from Venture3Media (V3M). The song is available now at Apple MusiciTunesSpotifyGoogle Play and additional digital and streaming outlets globally. A Bridges Nashville: Jesus You Are Deluxe Version is also available as exclusives from Apple Music and iTunes.

 

Following back-to-back hardships faced by the church planted Sept. 2018 by Kurtis Parks in partnership with National Community Church, a multi-site church led by Pastor and NY Times best-selling author Mark Batterson, “Jesus You Are” has been an anthem for the church to sing over the last couple months.

 

“Worship songs can become altar-moments to God’s faithfulness, even in a tough season,” shares Parks, Bridges Nashville’s lead pastor and co-writer of the song with worship leader Delaney Ramsdell.

 

Over the last couple months, the church, which gathers at The Listening Room Café in downtown Nashville, had all of its signage, worship and production equipment stolen followed a week later by a devastating tornado that ripped through the areas of Nashville the church serves. Now dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, Bridges Nashville’s worship team remotely gathered online from their sheltering locations across the US to record the song from their homes. “From Texas to Virginia, and all in between, while social distancing, we were unified in worship,” shares Parks.

 

With Travis Flynn editing the resulting iPhone video and Patrick McDermott and Cordell Bay mixing the audio, Bridges Nashville initially shared the “Jesus You Are” recording on its Facebook page April 3, which was quickly viewed by tens-of-thousands and shared hundreds of times.

 

“We knew that this is a song for right now, for our world and what we are all going through,” says Parks in the song story video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGmQuY2csxw&feature=youtu.be. “The words of the bridge say that Jesus is the Prince of Peace and the Son of Truth. If there are two things our world needs to be reminded of right now, it’s that God is peace in the midst the storm and Jesus is the way, the truth and the life even among confusion and much doubting. I pray that as you listen to this song, it’s an inspiration and hope-filling for you today.”

Maker of all things new

Jesus You are, Jesus You are

More of You, less of me

Who is worth everything

Jesus You are, Jesus You are

Will Willimon served as the Dean of Duke Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry at Duke University for two decades. He returned to Duke after serving a Bishop of the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church from 2004 to 2012. Willimon is the author of over 70 books. In early 2018 he released, “Who Lynched Willie Earle?: Confronting Racism Through Preaching”. We had a discussion about that book on this podcast shortly after it released, then last year Dr. Willimon came back on the show to talk about his Memoir Accidental Preacher and again we had a wonderful discussion about his life and ministry. In 2020, he released a powerful sermon resource for ministers who use the Revised Common Lectionary in their preaching and service planning called Will Willimon's Lectionary Sermon Resource.

Eat. Pie. Love. with Tara Royer Steele: Episode 362

Book_Cover_half_size.jpgTaraRoyerSteeleAuthorPhoto_half_size.jpg

At 12-years-old Tara Royer Steele started working as a waitress in her family’s restaurant in rural Texas where she endured the pressures of running a business and trying to meet her father’s high expectations. It was in the kitchen where she found the most joy baking specialty pies which quickly became famous around town.

In her book EAT PIE LOVE (BroadStreet Publishing), Tara shares some of her delicious pie recipes and uses the analogy of pie baking to remind us that our lives can become messy, or unsavory, from the ingredients or choices we make. But when we trust the hands of our Creator, we can experience wholeness and the sweeter side to life.

Phil KEaggy is an American acoustic and electric guitarist and vocalist who has released more than 50 albums and contributed to many more recordings in both the contemporary Christian music and mainstream markets. He is a seven-time recipient of the GMA Dove Award for Instrumental Album of the Year, and was twice nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album. He has frequently been listed as one of the world's top-three "finger-style", as well as "finger-picking", guitarists by Guitar Player Magazine readers' polls.

 

On March 6th, 2020 PHIL KEAGGY will be headlining a benefit for Instrumentsof Joy alongside renown artists Audrey Assad, Buddy Greene, Jeff Taylor
