This week on Voices In My Head Rick leads you through roughly 30 minutes of guided worship with songs, scripture, readings from sacredspace.ie, and reflections along the way. This episode is intended to help you worship and have some quiet time with the Lord away from distractions so that God can speak into your life. Featuring songs written by Rick Lee James, Mark Altrogge, David Lubben, Vicci Martinez, &Timothy Pagnotta.
Timothy Kurek, raised within the confines of a strict, conservative Christian denomination in the Bible Belt, Nashville, Tennessee, was taught the gospel of separation from a young age. But it wasn’t long before Timothy’s path and the outside world converged when a friend came out as a lesbian, and revealed she had been excommunicated by her family. Distraught and overcome with questions and doubts about his religious upbringing, Timothy decided the only way to empathize and understand her pain was to walk in the shoes of very people he had been taught to shun. He decided to come out as a gay man to everyone in his life, and to see for himself how the label of gay would impact his life. In the tradition of Black Like Me, The Cross in the Closet is a story about people, a story about faith, and about one man’s “abominable” quest to find Jesus in the margins. We talk about his book and his experiment this week on Voices In My Head.
This week Rick catches you up on what’s going on in his life, including a new voice in his head, an Arachnoid Cyst. He also shares his thoughts on Lone Ranger Christians and tells you about his new YouTube show, Songs With My Son.
He’s a folk singer, he a festival organizer, and he’s a dad again for the second time. This week on Voices In My Head we welcome back Folk singer and songwriter Daniel Dye. His new album, Blinded Again, is about to release, his new daughter was just born, and this year’s Madden Road Festival on August 16th is a new kind of awesome. It’s a whole episode of newness as I accompany Daniel on piano as we play some of his new songs.

Nick Flora is an independent performing songwriter from Nashville, TN. Nick has been writing, recording, and touring with his music since he was a teenager with a passion for creating interesting, engaging, and enjoyable songs. His latest album, The Re-Introduction of Nick Flora, broke the top 40 on iTunes on the day of it’s release. The Re-Introduction of Nick Flora has been on this musicians playlist for a couple of months now and it quickly became one of my favorites with songs both heavy and light-hearted, listening to the album from start to finish is a rewarding process, well-worth the time. It’s my pleasure to welcome Nick Flora back to Voices In My Head.
My guest this week is Ben DeBonofor the Sci-fi Christian Podcast. Ben is a great Podcast host, a man of higher learning with not one but two masters degrees, and he is also a good friend. I asked Ben on the show this week to help answer one question with many answers, What Would Jesus Kill? Would he kill Plants? Bugs? Animals? People? You won’t want to miss this challenging two part conversation that may stretch you a bit.
During the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, two pressure cooker bombs exploded at 2:49 p.m. EDT , killing 3 people and injuring 264. Once again the American people were asking the question, where is God in the midst of this. On Sunday night April 21st at Calvary Church of the Nazarene in Lexington Kentucky, Matthew Cole, Chad Cook, and Rick Lee James led a discussion based on the question, Where is God when evil happens? A recording of that discussion is presented to you this week’s episode of Voices In My Head.
