Check out this Blacklight Drama of “Tender Mercy” performed by the First Presbyterian Church of Urbana Youth Group

What a great job these young people did using my song “Tender Mercy (Zechariah’s Song)” in a manner that I never imagined.

One more for Advent! Light One Candle To Watch For Messiah – An Advent Hymn

One more for Advent!  Light One Candle To Watch For Messiah – An Advent Hymn

I have said it before and it bears repeating for this blog post that because I became a Christian just over 7 years ago, an “old Christian hymn” for me is anything off of Chris Tomlin’s Arriving. So, I am always greatly appreciative when a brother or sister who has been in the faith much […]

12 Songs For Advent

12 Songs For Advent

This season, I have become a lot more appreciative of the meaning of Advent and have searched out for relevant advent songs (and arrangements) to present to the church. Particularly, I have been focused on the concepts of light and of waiting. If you are a worship leader who has been struggling to do the […]

Introducing Tender Mercy (Zechariah’s Song): A Song For Advent

Introducing Tender Mercy (Zechariah’s Song): A Song For Advent

This song has appeared here before, but I am finally releasing the mastered studio version to the public… The story surrounding the song is basically this: my Pastor casually opined in a sermon: “Mary gets a ton of songs about her. Why doesn’t Zechariah get his own song?” I obliged. Essentially, the song is the […]

No Jewish Evangelism? Or, Why “Real” Jews do not try and convert others

No Jewish Evangelism? Or, Why “Real” Jews do not try and convert others

A friend recently posted her frustration at a Messianic Jew who issued a press release announcing that his son was missing. She viewed this as “disgusting” and as an attempt to proselytize to Jewish people, adding: “Real Jews do not try to convert others. Messianics are a different story. They aren’t Jews, but they still […]

Obamacare, Blessing or Curse: One Family’s Look

Obamacare, Blessing or Curse: One Family’s Look

After the dust had settled from the government shutdown, I decided to look into the Affordable Health Care Act myself… specifically, CoveredCA since we are California residents. I heard the rumors about websites not functioning correctly, and sadly, I was not an exception. After seven or so attempts, where the site stalled just after I […]

Stop using the phrase “reproductive health” to explain abortion

Stop using the phrase “reproductive health” to explain abortion

The definition of “health” is “the state of being free from illness or injury.” Plenty of quotes today regarding Governor Brown’s signing of abortion bill AB 154 (allowing non-physicians to perform “suction” abortions in the first trimester) that are using the phrase “reproductive health.” Says Kathy Kneer, CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California: Brown […]

It wasn’t a speech! It was a sermon!

When it comes to religion, Christianity is as liberal as it gets

When it comes to religion, Christianity is as liberal as it gets

No, I am not talking politically. Just liberally. From a liberal perspective, isn’t a religion that is open to all, that is easy to become a part of, and that is easy to leave behind about as liberal as it gets? I was reminded of this thought as I was sitting behind two orthodox Jewish […]

The Martin Trial: If Trayvon, in fact, Killed Zimmerman

The Martin Trial: If Trayvon, in fact, Killed Zimmerman

Just saw a Daily Show bit on the Zimmerman verdict. It failed for the simple fact that it tried to allege a connection between the black woman who could not use the Stand Your Ground law and got 20 years for merely shooting a gun in the air and Zimmerman, who allegedly got off using […]

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
