It has been two years since the release of our album, “I Will Bring You Peace”, in 2010. We chose to release this album on September 11th as a way of reminding people that, though we live in a world at war with itself in so many ways, Jesus offers us and invites us into a peace that truly passes all understanding. The album (and title track) is themed around Jesus words found in Matthew 11:28-30:
“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
To celebrate this CD release anniversary of our defining album, we are offering it for a “pay what you want” to download this album. If you like what you hear, download it and decide how much you’d like to bless our ministry. (I’ve also included an option that allows an immediate download, plus a physical CD for $10.)
The album can be found here: www.reflect.bandcamp.com
I was so blessed to walk into a nursing home facility today to find a lady sitting next to a CD player humming along to “Come Thou Fount” from our Reflect Hymn album. At first I thought, “I know that song, but that doesn’t sound like us.” And then I realized it was because she was singing along with it. The nurse said that they play our Reflect Hymn CD at least once if not twice a day and that the residents really enjoy it.
It reminded me of who our main ministry is to. As many of you know, we don’t have a thriving ministry to our generation (as much as we may want to connect with and bless those in our generation). Instead God has blessed our ministry to the elderly in nursing homes.
It’s because of reminders like these that I’d like the next album we make for them. But we need your prayers. The honest truth is, we feel worn down and often uninspired. It’s been awhile since we even wrote a song or did much of anything creative. I believe we under attack from the enemy (yes, we have an enemy) and we need your prayers. If you are a Christian brother or sister, would you just say a prayer for us right now? I trust God will bless you for the love you show by lifting us up in prayer (that’s “Christianeze” for talking to God and suggesting he get us out of our funk).
We really desire to be used mightily for the growing of God’s kingdom.
Happy Rosh Hashanah!
