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 […]
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 […]
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! The price has been paid. We are forgiven!

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.

If you can watch this and not feel the love of God, then we need to […]
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 […]
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 […]
Those words of Jim Valvano so aptly describe the fight of Stuart Scott, 49, who died early Sunday morning. He was a man, like Jimmy V who not only changed his industry, but helped move the needle in the fight against cancer. His work for The V Foundation helped many who needed encouragement and support.
