Why WOULD Anyone Sing in Church These Days? 

Having been closely involved in the current, modern 'worship' culture since the 1970s, I am always interested in articles such as this one by Jonathan Aigner. Take a a few minutes to read this and feel free to comment. The full article is reproduced below, but you can also read more from Jonathan by visiting his site:  HERE
 

Why don’t people sing in church anymore? 

A quick trip down Google’s memory lane reveals that the internet has been talking about this regularly since at least 2012. And everyone seems…

Mission Worship Conference 

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Mission Worship Conferences, hosted by Kingsway Trust. I was involved in many of these events and have been invited back to lead a late night event on Saturday 19th November, with Dave Bilbrough and Chris Bowater. We three guys have worked together many times over the years, so I am expecting that our set will be a special occasion for all the delegates. Tickets for the weekend are now available from the WEBSITE, so check it out and see who else will be taking…Read more

How do we view God? 

I just saw this article on the Huffington Post, written by Scott Dannemiller who is a speaker, author, blogger, worship leader, leadership consultant and former missionary with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The article is entitled 'The One Thing Christians Should Stop Saying' and it makes for a challenging read.

On BBC Radio 2 

I'm always encouraged to hear my songs played on the radio, especially when it's BBC Radio 2. 'Heaven's King' which I co-wrote with Dutch singer/songwriter Kees Kraayenoord, was played last Sunday morning by Diane Louise Jordan on The Sunday Hour. You can listen to the entire programme HERE. 'Heaven's King' was the second song played at around 6 minutes 30 seconds.

You couldn't make it up!  

Be careful if you are getting on a plane this week. It seems that fear and paranoia knows no boundaries these days among the travelling public. I just read this article on the BBC News website and was amazed that intelligent people behave in this way. I tend to do a lot of Killer Su Doku on long flights. I guess I will have to be careful when scribbling my workings-out on sheets of paper. Click on the image to read the article.

On Friday, Tricia and I will be flying up to Berlin, Germany to perform at a concert with Norm Strauss and Isabel Ment. Berlin became a second home to me between 1998 and 2006 and I have always enjoyed playing there. It will be good to meet up with lots of friends and I am sure we will have a great show. Full details and tickets are at the ufafabrik website.  Here is a little taste of Norm and Isabel performing together to when your appetite.
