Hello to my faithful and true listeners,
I wanted to give you a short update about progress on the new record, “The Door of Faith”. I have spent the majority of the year composing and arranging the songs, and have come up with 11 songs. I entered the studio in August and have been slowly chipping away at each composition. As my main responsibility in life is to be a faithful husband and father, the recording sessions have to take a backseat to my family’s needs. As for the songs, I’m really excited about how things are sounding thus far. I’m chomping at the bit to share them with you, but I’m not quite there yet. My perfectionism prevents me from revealing anything before I determine that the music is the best I have to offer. Nevertheless, I am working towards the goal of sharing the first single, “The Dream of Joseph”, in time for Thanksgiving, and I hope to have the full album completed in time for Advent and Christmas season. Pray for me!
As I mentioned there are 11 songs i’m working on right now for the record. Here’s the tentative tracklisting:
1. Come to Me
2. The Dream of Joseph
3. Rich in Mercy
4. The Same Body
5. The Door of Faith
6. Our Father
7. Ave Maria
8. Glory Be
10. Burning Furnace of Charity
11. I Saw Water
In the meantime, I hope you are excited as I am about the Year of Faith starting 11 October 2012! I thought it was a good sign when I read through the Holy Father’s reflections which he gave before the opening of the Synod of Bishops, and he used one particular word:
Therefore, it is important to always know that the first word, the true initiative, the true activity comes from God and only by inserting ourselves in to the divine initiative, only by begging this divine initiative, will we too be able to become – with him and in him – evangelizers. God is always the beginning, and always it is only he who can make Pentecost, who can create the Church, who can show the reality of his being with us. But, on the other hand, however, this God, who is always the beginning, also wants to involve our activity, so that the activities are theandric, so to speak, made by God, but with our involvement and implying our being, all our activity.
So when we are carrying out the new evangelization it is always cooperation with God, it is in the togetherness with God, it is based on prayer and his real presence.
