Acts for Everyone

My wife is reading a book right now called "Acts for Everyone" written by N.T. Wright. It's an accessible take on the book of Acts, meaning not overly scholarly. Eugene Peterson (Author of the Message) writes, "A rare event: a commentary that is learned without being stuffy, accessible without being reductionist. Tom Wright joins us in our homes and workplaces, our sanctuaries and classrooms, in genial, prayerful conversation over this text that forms our lives, the New Testament Scriptures. "

On Sunday, we kick into a several month-long series on the book of Acts. If you're looking for a commentary to take on this journey, I would like to recommend the 2 volume series, "Acts for Everyone"

I'm not sure why, but the audio player on the previous post stopped working. Let's try again, shall we?

New Recording (sort of)

This Sunday, Sara (my wife) preached on the value of compassion and how we're shaped and molded by our experiences through the Holy Spirit to be more Christ-like and compassionate. Sara requested that we sing "How Deep How Wide" - a song I wrote for her ordination - following the sermon.

Last fall, Keenan Boswell and I shared a bunch of new music at an evening concert at the church. We got a decent recording of the event and I have since then added some extra layers to the recording. I laid down an extra guitar track, a bass track and took a stab at playing some drums. Turned out good, I think.
