Our just-released-though-recorded-in-2011-album, “Peace Be Still”, now has its own cozy little Soundcloud account, decked out with samples of all of the songs for your listening pleasure. Go on, give them a wee minute or two of time :)
Two years in the making (long story), it’s finally out and my joy in somewhat indescribable!
"We are happy to announce that Peace Be Still, the CD we recorded in Rwanda two years ago, is finally ready for release!

So I just finished another journal and read the note I wrote to myself the day I started it - 2 years ago, nearly to the day - to read upon completion of the book.
I’ve just been marvelling at where I’ve come (or, rather, been brought) since then and also at the damn near perfectly timed point in my life on which I am ending this section of my record of my journey (y’know, it’s almost as if there is some kind of composer or author involved in the unfolding of this story huh?).
But it is now time for bed.
And then the sun will rise and life will continue and I will have to go and search for a new bound chunk of paper on which to continue to record the ups and downs, highs and lows, laughter and tears and everything in between that make up the topography of life lived.
I don’t ask that it be painless, only that it be a life punctuated by a repeated YES to God’s unending love in my life - whatever that looks like. I know that if I want to say yes to love and yes to God it’s not all going to be a happy-clappy fun-in-the-sun affair.
But there will be joy, even every time love means giving up my rights or desires, because He’s promised to always be there no matter what. And there will be peace even when everything is absolutely going great and even when everything is going to shit. I know it’s worth it.
Somehow, it really truly is.
