God and Hamilton with Guest Kevin Cloud  – Episode 374

GOD_HAMILTON_final.jpgKevinPhotoMF.jpeg

On July 3rd, Hamilton, featuring the original 2015 Broadway production of the smash hip-hop musical, releases on Disney+. Having captured the collective imagination of audiences across the globe, Hamilton has been woven into the cultural fabric of society, shedding light on issues such as immigration, gender equality, diversity, and race. But it has also raised deeply spiritual issues found throughout the life of Alexander Hamilton. 

 

The often forgotten and overlooked Founding Father, Hamilton, an orphan and immigrant from the Caribbean, impacted the government of the early republic as much as, if not more than, any other Founding Father. As Kevin Cloud, a pastor and author, details in his book, God and Hamilton: Spiritual Themes from the Life of Alexander Hamilton and the Broadway Musical He Inspired (Deep River Books), Hamilton’s life story serves as a lens through which we can learn more about God and our ourselves, with themes like grace, faith, shame, doubt, forgiveness, and ultimate redemption.

12 Days Left

Hello my friends,

I just wanted to send a quick reminder that have 12 days left to raise $4000 so that I can pay for my time spent in the studio in New York. This doesn’t cover the printing of the new album or any of its promotion, just the studio costs which I’ve already incurred.

I could really use your help in making this happen with your pre-orders and donations on Indiegogo. I just added a new sheet music perk this week that you might want to check out.

Together, by your help in donating, pre-ordering, and sharing this campaign, we can do this.

I can’t wait to share this new music with you.

Thank you for your much needed help.

Blessings,

Rick Lee James

That’s A Wrap

Guess what? That’s a wrap! We’ve completely finished recording my new album, Thunder!

There were so many wonderful moments in the making of this project, and I don’t quite know how to put them into words yet, so I’ll try to be brief.

I put in several 12 to 15 hour days with producer Chris Hoisington and the tremendously talented crew at Old Bear Records. I’m moved by their commitment getting this album right, and giving me the time and space to find my own voice, to let me play several different instruments, and to express what is on my heart through music in new and unique ways. I’ve had wonderful times in recording studios in the past, but never anything as unique as this.

I have never been more excited about making music than I am at this point in my life. I put my all into this album. I played and sang my heart out. I laughed, I cried, I had space to pray, and to follow the Spirit’s leading. This is the gift that Old Bear Records gave to me, it’s why I wanted to work with these amazing people. There was an atmosphere in the studio that Made me feel we were creating on holy ground.

This picture was part of a promotional photo shoot that happened after we wrapped. I love dogs, and this picture represents the joy I found in this whole experience as Instagram sensation, Mabel the dog stopped by (Find her at @Mabel_thebully). This picture represent just one of the many moments in which I was surprised by joy while recording at Old Bear Recording Studio! To Chris, Anthony, Jeremy, Pauly, Ron, Sarah and all of your families, I sincerely thank you for all you did to make this project what it needed to be.

I promise you, this album is going to be something like you’ve never heard from me before.

There is still a lot left to do before the project can be released, including raising the funds to finish paying for the recording budget. One way you can help me to do that is by pre-ordered here at the link below. I need to raise nearly $5000 and your pre-orders of the album itself, t-shirts, books, and various other perks connected to the album will help me to meet the financial need. By pre-ordering through Indiegogo you not only get some great new music before the rest of the world does, you actually get to be a part of making the record.

I’m grateful for you. Thank you for taking this journey with me.

Blessings,

Rick Lee James

Shane_Claiborne.jpeg

Shane Claiborne is a follower of Jesus and following Jesus has led him on many adventures. Following Jesus has taken him from the streets of Calcutta where he worked with Mother Teresa to the wealthy suburbs of Chicago where he served at the influential mega-church Willow Creek. Following Jesus has taken him From Rwanda to the West Bank, from Afghanistan to Iraq, and from Tennessee to Philly where he leads “The Simple Way”, a faith community in inner city Philadelphia that has helped birth and connect radical faith communities around the world.
 

What many people don’t know about Shane is that he was also friends with the late Rich Mullins. On this episode I talk with Shane about Rich, following the peaceful path of JEsus, gun violence, the death penalty and more.
