Ahead in '19 ...
Since the completion of my album, Let the Dogs Run Free, I am moving on to record two albums-worth of new material.
One album, provisionally called, "Back to the Wood," will be roots-oriented and entirely acoustic. The other will be electric with more of a swing and jazz feel to it.
The Cow Pies, my Stampede band, will have two gigs during this year's Calgary Stampede, which is always a hoot.
Meanwhile, I have begun a collaboration with a friend and colleague in minis-try to explore in writing, perhaps for publication, what we experience as the death of the church.
This is a sad and difficult topic, and we are not the first to address it. But we feel a strong push to ask how we got here, and what the future might be for an institu-tional expression of Christianity, if there is any.
To get from here to the CD's and the possibility of a new book, there is the Man Cave recording studio to be renovated, and much exploratory writing to be done.
So what am I doing sitting here? Onward!
