Reflections and thoughts held with Holy uncertainty

The Experience vs The Journey

I'm taking a little break from talking directly about my recording project and am going to share something that I've been thinking about a lot lately. Our current culture is absolutely infatuated with the experience. Think about it - it's all about the next vacation,...

We Bring It All

We Bring It AllĀ is one of the songs I wrote with Ben and Jason when I was down in Nashville at the end of January. I thought I'd take the time to share a bit about the story behind it here. http://youtu.be/eUnrA1uqZpQ The three of us sat down to do some writing and we...

My Indiegogo Campaign

So I've jumped in and started asking my friends and family (as well as other random strangers!) for money to help me complete my recording project. I've spent a lot of time thinking about this, and I'm really excited about how it should work. On my first trip down to...

A World Without Dandelions…

It's been a busy week in the Siverns house. Our newest member, Asher Miles, arrived last Friday. He's great, though he doesn't really understand the concept of sleeping during the night yet. Such is life. I've had the chance to spend a bit more time at home helping...

Next steps from the Nashville trip

I've had tons of people ask me how my trip was and what's happening next, so I thought this would be a good place to post that. And yes, I'm going to try to get back to doing weekly updates on the blog... I'll even put it into my phone to see if that helps! Spending...

First trip to Nashville!

It's been a while, so I thought I'd start back in with a more personal and less broad blog (but don't worry... I'll be back to the philosophical soon enough!). Most of the people who check this out are people that I know or who know me to an extent, so I though this...

Some thoughts on worship and concerts…

I had the chance to lead worship at a great conference last weekend. Identity, which has been happening at our church now for 6 or 7 years, is just a blast. It's a whole bunch of local (and some not so local) churches getting together for the weekend for all kinds of...

What can a congregation sing?

I've been giving a lot of thought lately to congregational worship and those who write the songs we sing in our churches. My own experience would tell me a few things: 1. I'm a trained musician and have loved music my whole life. I learn and remember songs better than...

A step in some direction…

I've decided to get a website. I was just on a blog before, and as you can see, this is still a blog, but I've decided to learn some stuff about how this stuff all works and start playing around. I'm also going to start blogging again (yeah, sorry about that). I've...
