A Prayer for those who call Jesus King

A Prayer for those who call Jesus King

Today we got the results from the US election. I know many people who are celebrating, and some who are angry or in disbelief (quite literally). I've been struck with the polarization of politics in these past few years - not just in the US, but also in Canada. Our...

Longings & Liturgies

I've got a new album in the works. I've written lots more about it on my kickstarter page, so instead of rehashing everything there I thought I'd give you some other thoughts. A quick overview: The core of this album will be seven songs that will make up my final...

Why I Need You

This has been an time of mourning in Canada as we've heard of the passing Stuart McLean, whose Vinyl Cafe has found a place in the hearts of millions of people. Good stories grab us, and McLean was a master story teller who made us love Dave, Morley and all of the...

January 1

It's been almost a year since I've posted on this blog (sorry about that friends!), and there are TONS of things I could write as I reflect back on the year that was 2016. As I sit on my couch looking out at a rather snowy and enchanted enchanted looking January 1 of...

Risk and Reward

Risk and Reward

Have you ever stepped out and taken a really big risk? Done something that shakes you up, challenges your pretences, takes a comfortable stability out of your life and replaces it with the unknown? I'd highly recommend that you do. We like safety and comfort and I...

Aesthetics matter

Aesthetics matter

I've spent a lot of my time in ministry dealing with aesthetics in one way or another. I've done video work, screen design, stage design, lighting design, print material, and obviously music, just to name a few. I've had great (and difficult) conversations with people...

A New Chapter

Change is one of those things that's inevitable, and I've written, spoke and sang about that before. This season for us has been really unique though, and feels like a new chapter in our lives. There are so many things I could write about what God is teaching us...
