It was a real honor for me to be able to sit down and have a conversation with Church of the Nazarene General Superintendent emeritus, Dr. Jesse Middendorf. He has been a hero and mentor of mine from afar for many years and I think you will really enjoy our conversation on ministry, piloting airplanes, and the great hope that we have for the world. This episode was recorded on location at Mount Vernon Nazarene University for the 2016 Pastors and Leaders Conference, otherwise known as PALCON.
This is often what pre-service looks like for me. I warmed up by rehearsing a couple of songs we were playing together in church then closed my time by warming up my finders on a Phil Keaggy inspired (Doin’ Nothin’) type guitar jam using my JamMan Looper. I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes LIVE Facebook video from Sunday Morning, May 22nd, 2016 (Trinity Sunday).
Historically, The Lord’s Supper has been viewed as the sustaining meal of the believer. John Wesley was innovative and his belief that the Eucharist was also an opportunity to invite people to conversion? Drawing up on historical context while looking at our modern-day setting, this workshop will examine the Lord supper and how it is an invitation to the kingdom of God.
Some Words From Walter Brueggemann about ‘Hymns, Prayers,and Invitations’ by Rick Lee James
“I have listened to Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations and am so grateful for it. Rick Lee James has a great gift for taking up familiar words and giving them freshness with new cadence and voicing. I love the 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.” -Walter Brueggemann
