A Gift-Worthy Donation

I’m so blessed, with a few days left to give before Thanksgiving (my self-imposed deadline) we have only $300 left to raise to meet the gofundme goal.

The album doesn’t release until March 17th, but it goes to press next week. This means that donors at certain levels should have their copy of the record by Christmas. This means that you can pre-order the digital album for yourself and give the physical copy away as a gift depending on your reward level.

The goal is within reach, $300 in 3 days. Donate today at www.gofundme.com/hymns

Want To Hear A Track From My New CD?

If you haven’t heard yet, my new album is recorded and mixed, promo photos have been taken, publishing contracts have been executed, and I am currently in talks with media promoters and graphic designers.

With that being said we still are quite a bit short financially and could really use your help to complete the album. I still have to pay for mastering, printing the discs, distribution fees, art design, and promotion. This puts me at least $1000 short at this point.

The record is being released on March 17th (St. Patrick’s Day) but my plan is to have it mastered, pressed, and mailed out to donors before Christmas. With your help I know this can be accomplished. If you could once again help me spread the word about our gofundme page that would be a great help.

Also, several,of you have told me that you are planning on contributing but just haven’t yet. I would encourage you to do it now if you are planning to, then you can get a copy of the album well before the rest of the world.

Just to sweeten the pot a bit more, to all new donors who give $10 or more between now and Thanksgiving, I will immediately send you a track from the new record.

I’ve listened to the unmastered mixes from start to finish about 6 times now and I still Cant believe how great it sounds.Craig Adams did an amazing job of producing, singing BGV’s and assembling some of the best musicians and engineers that Nashville (the world really) have to offer. I’m a blessed man to have such care given to my songs.

Help me spread the word and give if you can.Wishing you all a great week.

Rick Lee James

This Greek word implies that he was accused of being a bandit, a rebel, and an insurrectionist. Jesus was none of these things, but make no mistake, to the Romans Jesus was a religious fanatic who would no doubt try to overturn their social order if allowed to gain too many followers. Get this in you mind: Jesus was a refugee.

The Apostle Paul was a terrorist. He promoted Roman ideology and intentionally persecuted the church, killing Christians in order to prevent an uprising. After he encountered Jesus on the Damascus Road everything changed. The message of Christ’s love was branded in his mind through the response of the very ones he was persecuting. After his encounter with Jesus instead of…
