Although I don’t write about it much here, I absolutely love music. Before I became a full-time pastor, I spent a lot of time leading worship in church or helping in worship in some way. I love to play guitar and I am relearning the piano at a useful level again. I spend a lot of my time playing songs written by Rich Mullins and worshipping God in awe of His love. I have been getting these snippets of ideas to write songs lately. I am not a big songwriter and I haven’t written a lot of songs, but the ones that have come together lately have been special to me. I send them to my sister after I record them because I trust her judgment. Mostly, I just write them for me and sing them for the Lord.
Someday, I might get brave enough to let them out into the world. A couple of my earlier efforts have been on myspace when I was part of a band called 4D back when I lived in the Black Hills, but they are the lone escapees at this point.
