Friends, there is much going on in the land of A New Liturgy…
(1) We have officially begun recording A New Liturgy No 4. The last four days have been jam-packed with tracking all the drums, percussion, bass, acoustic guitars, ukulele, Becky vocals, and lots of hand-clapping. I can’t tell you how thrilled we are with how it’s coming together. This is the most energetic, driving, upward New Liturgy yet. Here is a fun video of some of Monday’s session…
(2) Shauna is giving away 5 copies of “ANL No 1: God is Love” at her blog this week. A good conversation is already brewing about finding God’s presence in everyday life. Stop by and check it out! shaunaniequist.com/blog
(3) Brad Lomenick and the Catalyst team are giving away a “digital mix tape” of 35+ songs from different artists, and I’m thrilled to contribute the first movement of “ANL No 2: Blessed to be a Blessing”. You can read the story behind the song and download the entire mix tape HERE. Did I mention it’s free?
(4) Finally, we just arrived in Bracknell, UK – a little town outside of London. On Sunday I get to join up with Kerith Community Church and lead the “God is Love” liturgy. Since nearly all of my favorite bands are British (Beatles, Elbow, Radiohead, etc), it’s quite intimidating to bring my music into this land of legends. But fortunately “liturgy” means “the work of the people”, so we will create the experience together! (Or maybe I’ll lose my nerve at the last minute and just cover “Don’t Look Back in Anger” by Oasis. That’ll work, right?)
Peace to you all.
