“Digging for the Roots”
On October 6th I had the great opportunity to lead at Trinity Lutheran in Delray Beach, FL. Here’s that service. It was a fantastic message on Christ delivering us from shame. Around 14 minutes in I go into two of my very favorite songs, “Rescue” and “Restless.”
Later that evening I flew into Nashville to do a songwriters round at the Commodore in Nashville. Jonathan Dean caught this video of “Digging for the Roots.”
NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THE SMOKIES STADIUM JULY 19,2013
I’ve wanted to do this since they built the Stadium. Lauren told me about the fireworks during the song as she handed me the microphone adding to the terrifying awesomeness of this experience.
My new favorite song, “Sparkle,” recorded in one of my favorite spaces, MY KITCHEN!
DOUBTS ABOUT MY DOUBTS
The older I get, the less I know. The more convinced I am that I am right, the bigger the holes in my theories become. “Doubts About My Doubts,” is written for the skeptic in me and you.
DIGGIN’ FOR THE ROOTS
It sneaks up out of nowhere. There you are just driving down the road and the song comes on the radio, or you look up and see the road you once turned down, and you suddenly can’t breathe. But you want to. You need to. So you grab a shovel and start digging through your story to get to the heart of the matter. It might not always be what you want to find, but it’s our only hope to get through it.”Diggin’ for the Roots”
BACK TO YOU
I’m a HUGE John Mayer fan. The honesty of “Back to You” does my heart good, even if it stings a little.
TAKE MY LOVE WITH YOU
No one sings a tune like Bonnie Raitt. But this is me trying! “Take My Love With You”

This is the song, “We Remember”, that won the Inspire Worship Conference songwriting contest. I don’t realize all that I understand about communion as it is one of the great mysteries, but I love it and I love that we are called to do it until Jesus calls us home.
O GREAT GOD
I came across these today and thought you would appreciate them. Special thanks to the band, Mark Geib, Joel Christian, Lil B, Hope the camera operator, and Bob Kauflin who wrote this amazing song, “O Great God.” As a songwriter, I appreciate great lyrics. As a worshiping leader, I love the marriage of great lyrics and melody. This one is near perfect.
YOU NEVER LET GO
Isn’t this beautiful?! That fire was HOT! Such a “stars colliding” moment for me. Mark’s dad was the pastor of the church where I now lead and Mark is a dear, dear forever friend. He brought his youth group up to our area. My friend Lil, another lifetime, iron sharpening friend, had traveled from overseas for a treasured visit. And we get to have this awesome moment of reminding together. Love Matt Redman. This is his song, “You Never Let Go.”
