What a treat it was to have Dr. Walter Brueggemann on the Voices In My Head Podcast. We had such a great discussion talking about theology, music, and where we will go if we die tonight. This episode was recorded on location at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Cincinnati Ohio on Wednesday September 30th.

BIG NEWS
I hope your September is off to a great start. It’s been a while since I wrote one of these so I thought I should give you some big news.

WHAT IS IT?
I am so excited to announce that Dr. Walter Brueggemann will be joining me on September 11th as my guest on Voices In My Head (The Rick Lee James Podcast). Brueggemann is widely considered one of the most influential Old Testament scholars of the last several decades and has greatly influenced my own thinking.

FINISHING THE NEW RECORD
On September 22nd I will be heading back into the recording studio in Nashville Tennessee to finish my new record titled Hymns, Prayers, and Invitations. I’ve been recording extra guitar parts for the album from my home in Ohio and the record is really cooking along now. We still are about $1000 short on funds so if you want to pre-order the record, thus helping to fund the production, you can do so at www.GoFundMe.com/Hymns.

EMPOWERING THE CHURCH
On October 24th I’ll be leading worship and teaching some worship related seminars with Jonathan Burkey at Lima Community Church of the Nazarene in Lima Ohio. You can get more information about this great event at www.nwonaz.org.

BACK TO SCHOOL
CEDARVILLE UNIVERSITY
On September 14th I will be leading a songwriting seminar on the campus of Cedarville University for students in the worship arts course of study. I’m really excited about the chance to join these great students once a month to help them grow in their craft for the service of the church
OLIVET NAZARENE UNIVERSITY
October 11-13th I have been invited to the campus of Olivet Nazarene University, just outside of Chicago Illinois, to participate in a conversation about worship for the center of faith and culture with other leaders for the Church of the Nazarene. This time together will allow a sustained dialogue concerning worship from a Wesleyan/Nazarene theological perspective, exploring the faithful exercize of worship leadership. Our hope it to move toward a sharedunderstanding and language concerning worship in the Church of the Nazarene
