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

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
