I am very excited to say I have released some new music available to be downloaded, the single "Perseverance of the Saints" along with its B-side "Ain't Giving Up Hope." And the great thing is you can download it for free from now until December 1.
Both of these songs dwell on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and thus I decided to release them in celebration of All Saints Day, which was November 1. Please take some time to listen. I would appreciate it and hopefully you will too. All downloads come with full liner notes and artwork.
Here is a description of the music from my Bandcamp page. (BTW-I have a number of other albums available for download, all for some pretty cheap prices):
A doctrine of the Church.
An illusive concept grasping to explain salvation, sanctification, and who exactly belongs to God.
A contentious issue for nearly all involved.
There are many who have gone before us and we stand on their shoulders, dwarves perched upon giants. We live our own lives and yet our story is their story. We are their offspring and we can only hope there will be others carrying the torch into the future. We have our own faith but that faith would be useless if we didn't have each other. We have each other but we would have nothing if we were not anchored to Christ.
We are the Saints. We will persevere and we will hope. As one together.
Perseverance of the Saints--An instrumental acoustic guitar song that slowly evolved into something else both musically and thematically. For some reason Chris new it was supposed to be called Perseverance of the Saints. It just seemed to fit.
Ain't Givin Up Hope--This was one of the first songs Chris ever wrote, probably around 1998. It's a genre study really, although Chris didn't know it at the time. It's cliched in so many ways that it's either trite or it's an homage to a tradition. It could be both, but it's also the sincere cry of a pilgrim of faith.
