From Sovereign Grace: “For years Ryan, Jonathan, and Meghan Baird have been contributing to Sovereign Grace Music as vocalists, songwriters, and instrumentalists. Their songs include Always Forgiven, The Prodigal, Completely Done, and most recently Behold our God. Something special happens when the Bairds get together to play and sing, and on this EP you’ll get a chance to hear what that is. Their sound is a rootsy, sometimes bluesy, form of Americana, always communicated with tight harmonies and compelling lead vocals. Just what you’d expect from kids who were raised by their dad and mom to love Jesus, his church, and good music.”

A Thousand Amens: LIVE Worship with The Falls Church Anglican.The Falls Church Anglican church has been thrust into the wilderness of portable church land after many years in its historical location in Falls Church, Va. as an Episcopal Church. After refusing to compromise God’s Word in reference to sexuality, the church lost its building (a stunningly beautiful facility) and has moved into a local high school. Before leaving, under the direction of Jamie Brown (Associate Director of Worship and Music), the church recorded a live CD called A Thousand Amens in the old facility. In Jamie’s words:

This recording captures the cry of a congregation that has learned and clung to the reality that Jesus is worthy of costly worship. And if that means we lose everything to gain Christ, then we say a resounding “amen”. So be it, Lord. We believe you’re all to us.

It is both a beautifully executed artistic work and a testament to the glory cloud that rested over that facility for many years and certainly is leading them forward on their journey.

O come to the Father : the blessing of the gospel: access to the Father

And give Him the glory: the ultimate goal of the gospel: God’s glory
