Transcending Mysteries: Who Is God and What Does He Want From Us? is the new book written by Andrew Greer (http://www.andrew-greer.com) and Ginny Owens (http://ginnyowens.com). Ginny and Andrew are both my guests on the latest episode of Voice In My Head, the Rick Lee James Podcast. Together we talk about the relational aspects of God, Christmas music, New EP’s TV tapings, songwriting and even an Alaskan Cruise that Ginny and Andrew will be a part of in 2016.
I also make a final plea to pre-order my new CD “Hymns, Prayers’ and Invitations” which is due to release on March 17th, 2016 (St. Patrick’s Day). This new album features a song that Andrew Greer and I wrote together called ‘The Invitation’.
Ginny and Andrew are both wonderful people and interesting guests so sit back, stick in an earbud, and listen to the latest episode of Voices In My Head, the official Rick Lee James Podcast.
This week on the Voices in my Head Podcast I am joined by Matt Anderson of the Sci- Fi Christian Podcast. We talk about Spider-man and the themes of “Power” and “Responsibility” while revisiting a classic Stan Lee and Steve Ditko storyline of the Amazing Spider-Man, The Master Planner!!!
I hope that this update finds you well. The advent season is upon us again and with it, as always, is much busyness. In addition to the normal Yuletide events this year, This year I add recording a new album to the schedule. This Thursday I will begin my drive to Nashville Tennessee and on Friday morning we will begin tracking the new album. I am so excited about this as I’m sure you are well aware. I have dreamed of an opportunity like this for so many years and God is finally open the door. I am so blessed to work with Lifeway Worship, Producer Craig Adams, A list musicians, and the top engineers in Nashville on this project.
I believe we have come up with a title that encapsulates this project. We think the title will be Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations. I am so blessed by so many of you given how did your resources to make this album the reality. Make God bless you in this holiday season and renew your faith in Christ. I covet your prayers as we begin this recording process and I ask you to pray for others will be renewed in their faith as a result of this endeavor. While we want to make great music, the goal is to reveal Jesus and the present reality of the kingdom of God.
I’ll do my best to update you on line through Facebook and Twitter (@RickLeeJames) while I am in Nashville with pictures and more as I am able. I feel very blessed today and I can’t wait to share the songs with you as a complete collection.

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.
It’s Pentecost, but what does that mean? What in the world is a tongue of fire? Why do we call this the birthday of the church? Does God change at Pentecost? What is the difference between the Greek and Hebrew thoughts on Heaven? How can the writing of Rabbi Roland S. Gittelsohn help us to understand Pentecost? All this plus a medley of Pentecost hymns by Rick Lee James on this week’s episode of Voices In My Head.
