“I love Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing), which gives newness to the phrases of Isaiah. Watching, waiting, and longing is what we do now, and these songs help us do that in confidence. I anticipate that this album will be received as a great gift by many who will find their faith nourished and awakened by it.”

It was a great honor to sit down and chat with Anthony Hoisington Of the Worship Band, The Brothers McClurg minutes after they led worship at the National Worship Leaders Conference in Kansas City on October 6th, 2016. We talk about leading worship in local churches, while on the road, and about the new Brothers McClurg project coming out in 2017.

Prompted by the police shootings in Tulsa and Charlotte, on this episode of Voices In My Head we discuss the problems of racism in America, both explicit and subtle. We talk about things like white privilege, racial fatigue, racial violence, being a parent of black children in America, an imbalance of power and more.

Our hope is that conversations like these will happen more and more. Racism will not just go away by pretending it isn’t there or hoping it disappears. We are all guilty of prejudice and often by being silent we make the problem worse. This is our attempt at not being silent. We must not allow our fear of saying the wrong thing keep us from having the conversation.


Pray with us as we continue to edit this video and are making preparations for its release. This is a great reminder from Moody Radio Studios. I pray it for this music video as well. “Your song may be used to save a soul. Sing it prayerfully.”
