Welcome Pastors.com Readers!
Thanks for stopping by! A huge shout-out to Tobin, Mark, and the gang at Pastors.com for publishing my article, A Christmas Wrapped In Praise, on their website and in their newsletter (that went to 172,000 pastors/church staff) this week! Many thanks!
For coming by to visit my blogsite, here is a free screensaver (9.4 MB) that we designed just for you! This screensaver – demoed in the sidebar if you have Flash – has 7 incredible photographs, each with a challenging and fresh thought on worship! It also includes an original worship song I wrote, called Desperation. Enjoy! (Also, at the bottom of this post you can download desktop backgrounds of some of these photographs. So keep reading!)
If you are looking for my in-depth Bible study on worship called Praise More Powerful, go here.

NOTE: If you want some “inside info” on how I came to write A Christmas Wrapped In Praise and about our future plans for the idea…
A Christmas Wrapped In Praise is an amazing and fresh perspective on the Christmas story. The idea came to me while I was at Oak Mountain State Park, just south of Birmingham, AL. (I had hidden away there to begin writing Praise Portions, which are short, 10-minute devotional studies on various topics relating to worship and praise.) God began to birth the idea in me while I was still in college several years ago. For an intriguing read on how it all came about back then, please read Reward for Faithfulness 20 Years in Coming.
We are currently writing and developing an entire worship presentation for Christmas based upon the article idea. We hope for it (God-willing!) to be complete and ready to be used in churches by Christmas of 2007. We are presently looking for original Christmas worship songs for the musical presentation. Please contact us if you have one you would like to submit for consideration. Thanks so much!
