Do You Have A Favorite Hymn?
Let Me Play It For You
If you read my blog then you know that I’m in the middle of a campaign to raise money for my first ever hymns record, with 5 time Dove Award winning producer Craig Adams. As a part of this process I am recording new videos each week for YouTube featuring hymns that are special to supporters of this project. I would love to know not only some of your favorite hymns but the stories behind them of why they are special to you. Simply reply to this Email, send me a Facebook message, and Tweet me to let me know some hymn you would like me to record.
I’m also pleased to announce that we have met now met 1% of our goal to get this album made. Today we also had our first $100.00 donation. I know that may not seem like a lot with a $30,000.00 budget, but I’m counting 1% as the first of many victories with a project this huge.
We just need to do what we’ve already done 99 more times and we can make this hymns record happen. Please keep telling your friends by sharing the video on YouTube. The more times it is seen, the better visibility it will have on the internet and the more likely we are to get more supporters. Let’s shoot for 400 plays by the end of Monday. That would be awesome.
And remember, if we can just get 6000 people to give $5.00 each we will have met our goal.
You all bless me and I am thankful to partner with you on this endeavor.
In His Glad Service,
Rick Lee James

Sunday night June 29th, 2014 I was blessed to play for the Nehemiah Foundation’s Event, “When Springfield Sings”. This event was a part of the Springfield Summer Arts Festival which brought out over 1000 people to worship together in the open air at Veteran’s park in Springfield Ohio. This is me playing More Than The Watchman from my record, Basement Psalms Live.
Contrary to what many people seem to think, July 4th is not a Christian holy day (holiday). Moses didn’t come down the mountain holding the Constitution in one hand and the Declaration of Independence in the other. The only Christian nation that has ever existed or will ever exist is the kingdom of God, whose reign has no end.
The earliest statement of Christian belief, “Jesus is Lord”, is the pledge of allegiance for the citizens of God’s Kingdom. The Sermon on the Mount is the Constitution for the people of God. It’s impossible to live it out alone but that’s the point. It takes Jesus and a group of disciples sharing life together to see His Kingdom take shape in this world.
Presidents and politicians like to tell us that The United States of America is last great hope of the world, and Christians chuckle at such an absurd statement. The United States of America is not not even close to being the last great hope of the world. The last great hope of the world is the first great hope of the world, and in fact the only hope for the world, Jesus Christ.
With all that being said, I like living in America. There are a lot of beautiful places here, with a lot of great people who have achieved some amazing things. I truly hope you will enjoy your 4th of July celebrations with your family and friends, but remember where the Christian’s true allegiance lies and Who the true hope of the world is. It is the hope that will outlast The United States and every other nation on earth. Be grateful for the place you live, be proud of the good things it has done, hold it accountable for the evil it embraces, and be grateful for the place you live while remembering that it is not your home.
Declare and celebrate your dependence upon God this 4th of July and remember that any other freedom than the freedom He offers is counterfeit at best. Freedom is the power to do the right thing, not to do anything you want to. Freedom is holiness lived out, serving others, and denying self. Love The Lord your God and worship Him only. Do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with the Lord your God
The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.”
Sunday Evening I was blessed to play music for over 1000 people in Veteran’s Park at the 2014 Springfield Sing’s concert, organized by the Nehemiah Foundation. It was a terrific night of worship with people from all over the city. My performance from that evening should be available on this web site in the near future but until then here’s a few pics from the evening.
