Be Still

By |September 4th, 2015|

Before this Labor Day weekend, let’s think about calming down our lives for a few moments and listening for the ‘still small voice’ of God. (1 Kings 19:11-12)

It’s hard to do. It’s hard to push all the other responsibilities of our world away and take a few minutes to commune with God. But the reward, […]

Be a Missionary at Home

By |July 21st, 2015|

I was reading Mark 5:18-20 today.

18And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 19Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath […]

Lowe Mill in Late Afternoon

By |June 14th, 2015|

My friend, Peter Meister, gave me this poem by James Miller Robinson written for a great American, Everett Carter. If you’ve ever been to Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment in Huntsville and strolled the third floor, then you’ve likely come across Everett Carter. Mr. Carter is a Vietnam vet and a wonderful individual. We have […]

Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis

By |April 6th, 2015|

Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) is one of the better ‘modern’ composers, in my opinion. We play a good bit of his music in our orchestra at First Baptist Church of Huntsville. While we haven’t played this piece, at least in my tenure, it’s a really nice work. 
I was in the mood to extend my Songs […]

Whatsoever Things

By |April 5th, 2015|

Hallelujah!  Christ Has Risen! 

Today we celebrate the rebirth of Christ and the culmination of the covenant that God made with his people (US!). The new covenant makes us God’s people and promises us everlasting life by faith. We call this Faith through Grace because we can’t earn the grace. We only have to sincerely ask […]

It Is Done

By |April 3rd, 2015|

It is done! The price has been paid. We are forgiven!

God allowed his son Jesus to pay the ultimate price for our sins. He gave his son to suffer as a human man and die on a cross like a common criminal. He did this to fulfill his covenant with all of humankind. No more […]

Be Thou My Vision

By |April 2nd, 2015|

Be Thou My Vision is one of my favorite hymns. This is by Ascend The Hill, a new group to me. Many of you probably know of them already. Our new Content Strategist at Ad4! Emily Heinkel introduced me to them. I really like this.

I hope you’re enjoying the Hymn series.

How Great Thou Art

By |April 1st, 2015|

God is good. Actually, God is Great. Today’s song is a Vince Gill and Carrie Underwood version of How Great Thou Art. Just listen. There’s really no need to additional talking by me. Turn up the volume and praise God.

If you can watch this and not feel the love of God, then we need to […]

Amazing Grace

By |March 31st, 2015|

The grace we receive from God truly is amazing. We can’t earn it. We can’t buy it. We can only ask for forgiveness and receive it undeservedly. It’s truly amazing.One of my favorite hymns is sung beautifully in this video by Alan Jackson. This good old Chattahoochee Rive boy can belt out a hymn. Have […]

The Old Rugged Cross

By |March 30th, 2015|

For this Holy Week leading up to Easter, I thought I’d share some great music. I am continually inspired by music. It’s a big part of my worship. 

“The Old Rugged Cross” is one of my favorite hymns. I ran across this a cappella version on GodVine by Koama. View and especially listen to to it […]
