ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These songs all celebrate God's blessings, one way or another.
Gloria, SpiritSong, and A Prayer For The Day are amongst the earliest songs I have written. While they are all stand-alone songs that can be sung whereever and whenever you'd like, they are part of a larger worship service.
Gloria, as you might expect, is intended as a praise song, and would start and finish the service.
SpiritSong is meant as an invitation, of sorts, to the Holy Spirit. I qualify the term 'invitation' because I am fully aware that the Spirit works within and around us at all times; however, I believe that God likes it when we make a specific invitation for the Spirit to enter us and empower us. SpiritSong would follow the Gloria very closely, as it prepares our hearts for the transformation that can only come about through the Holy Spirit driving worship.
A Prayer For The Day is both prayer and call to worship. It asks God to bless our entire day and reminds us that worship isn't just something that happens once a week for one hour; it is the core of our existence.
The Other Side Of The Kiss isn't necessarily part of the worship cycle, but it's not excluded from it either.
The song is about one of the ways I understand the Holy Spirit. I sometimes envision it as a dancer that "choreographs disordered feet into a heavenly rhythmic dance." Out of sync with God, we are dancers in search of God's heart beat. Like teenagers at a school dance, we hide along the back wall, afraid to step out with our Creator.
I understand the Holy Spirit as the one that not only connects us to God, but also gives us a different understanding of the one that sustains and redeems us. Through the Holy Spirit we get a glimpse of things from God's point of view, from the other side of a loving kiss that lets us know and feel God's holy love for us in a way that cannot be matched by any other.
This vision of the Holy Spirit is as much about God's breath of life as it is Sophia, or wisdom. God's Spirit not only gives us life; it fills us with the Godly wisdom we need to direct our lives and to dance along with God. As such, the image of the Holy Spirit I have in my mind is that of a female dancer moving about freely, gracefully, beautifully.

Memorable
The praise team at my church learned A Prayer for the Day over two weeks then we introduced it as our closing number the very next Sunday. We played it once instrumentally then the congregation joined in. All it took was one verse and they knew it. Great reviews from the congregation. We've now added it to our playlist. It's an all-around great song. Musically rich and memorable. Meaningful lyrics. Almost defies slotting. Is it a modern hymn? Or is it a praise song? That's how good it is. I'd say it's one of the better new praise songs I've heard in recent years.
