Guest Preacher William H. Willimon – Episode 382

Guest Preacher William H. Willimon – Episode 382

12418a_willimon_will004.jpg?w=684

Today on the podcast, I am pleased to welcome back Dr. William H. Willimon. Dr. Willimon served as the Dean of Duke Chapel and Professor of Christian Ministry at Duke University for two decades. He returned to Duke after serving as Bishop of the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church from 2004 to 2012. He is the author of over 70 books and as you are about to hear today, he is also skilled preacher.

I asked Dr. Willimon back to Voices In My Head today because in July 12th of this year (2020) he preached a sermon at the Washington National Cathedral, and it just really resonated with me. I wanted to give my listeners a chance to hear the sermon, which speaks into our present moment of pandemic, white violence, and unrest and Dr. Willimon graciously agreed to let me share it today.

Love Our Enemies CHARTING AT #18

Last Wednesday the music video for my new song, LOVE OUR ENEMIES, released. Since then I found out that the song is charting at #18 on PlayMPE Christian AC Top 20 chart!

What that means is that of all the Christian Radio Stations nationwide, Love Our Enemies is the #18 most added song for Radio AirPlay. (See the chart below).

As an independent artist, I’m usually not on the same radio charts with artists like The Newsboys, Matthew West, Chris Tomlin and Skillet so to say the least this is huge news. 

I want to thank you all for sharing my new music video, listening online, and requesting the song on Christian Radio stations in your area.

I especially want to praise our Lord for His goodness in providing open doors like these to spread the Gospel. Bless the Lord!

-Rick Lee James

RICK LEE JAMES MISSION STATEMENT

Saying No To God with Matthew J. Korpman – Episode 378

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-f8jje-e32ed2

Saying No To God with Matthew J. Korpman – Episode 378

Saying 'NO' to God (with Mathew J. Korpman) — The Story Church Project

My guest today on Voices In My Head is Matthew J. Korpman. Matthew is a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church who has served as both a student pastor and chaplain within the denomination and has also served as a homilist for various parishes outside the denomination, including the Episcopal church. He holds three Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees in Theology, Archaeology, Philosophy, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Screenwriting, all from La Sierra University. In his new book Saying No to God: A Radical Approach to Reading the Bible Faithfully, Matthew makes the case that Blessed are those who defy God. Although bumper stickers abound that propose otherwise, the Bible itself reveals that just because “God says it,” does not, in fact, mean “that settles it.” On the contrary, Korpman contends that a close reading of Scripture reveals that God does not want us to blindly obey him, but rather, invites us to “lock hands” with him and fight. The purpose of this book is to show another way to understand the Bible, one in which readers are not asked to accept what God says, but on the contrary: to say no to it, not because they merely want to, but because the God of the Bible actually requires it.

You Are My Friend: The Songs of Fred Rogers –  Daniel Knox Talks About His Latest Album

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-7rfe3-e2af4a

You Are My Friend: The Songs of Fred Rogers –  Daniel Knox Talks About His Latest Album

a3093335046_16.jpg

This week is a special bonus episode with Chicago based singer and songwriter Daniel Knox

 

Daniel Knox has a commanding baritone voice that can invoke both power and tenderness interchangably. On his latest album,  You Are My Friend: The Songs of Mister Rogers, Knox captures the care and generosity of Fred Rogers music, honors the original spirit of the music of Mister Rogers, while infusing it with the complications adding his own musical idea.

 

Hearing the childlike, welcoming lyrics of Fred Rogers through the sound of a strong baritone voice makes this album unique and original among the library of Mister Rogers tribute projects that have released over the years.   

 

Knox’s blanket of simple piano melodies and distinctive vocals invite the listener into a playful atmosphere where they can grapple with that joys and fears that that confront both adults and children alike. You Are My Friend is like a Mister Rogers album for contemplative adults that helps us to laugh, cry and reflect on and navigate the joys and sorrows of adulthood. It’s like musical medicine for weary souls who long to see the world again through the eyes of a child.

 

About The Album: 

You Are My Friend is made up of 11 songs from Mister Rogers Neighborhood, recorded for piano and voice. Kit Shields sings the part of Lady Aberlin to my Daniel Tiger on the duet “Sometimes I Wonder If I’m a Mistake”. The beautiful cover art is by Lake Wilson.

The music video for “Some Things I Don’t Understand”, directed by Lily Ekimian and A.T. Ragheb of Dog Door Films, is a simple and beautiful portrait of Rogers’ hometown of Pittsburgh.

RICK LEE JAMES PREMIERS POWERFUL AND TIMELY ‘LOVE OUR ENEMIES’ MUSIC VIDEO

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—“Love Our Enemies,” the latest music video from acclaimed singer/songwriter and author Rick Lee James, premiers today. Directed and edited by Jason Elam for Agape Media, the clip features James and his band performing at Dayton, Ohio’s historic Something Old Studio, and incorporates current news footage and images of people from around the world. “Love Our Enemies” is also releasing to Christian AC radio formats today.

“I wrote this song because I need to be reminded as much as anyone that loving our enemies isn’t optional—not in an election year; not when the world is burning; and not even when we feel unsafe,” James shares. “The whole world is our neighborhood and Christ’s call is to love our neighbors as ourselves, even the un-neighborly ones. Jesus turned the world upside down with inconvenient commands like this.”

“Our initial idea was to film a room full of people worshipping at a house church, but the pandemic caused us to think creatively and take a different approach,” James says of the video’s concept. “We landed on shooting the performance with the band in the historic studio space. From there, we decided to visualize the message by interweaving current events footage with images of people from around the world. And we wanted to highlight acts of service. Our hope for this video is that viewers may be prompted to ‘see’ and consider Jesus’ command to love in new ways.”  

“Love Our Enemies” is featured on James’ critically acclaimed 2019 album, Thunder. Taking the listener on a liturgical path, marked by Scripture readings and a passage from the Book of Common Prayer, Thunder was produced by Chris Hoisington of Brothers McClurg. The project features 10 songs, nine of which were written or co-written by James, while the title cut was co-written by the late Rich Mullins along with renowned songsmiths Lowell Alexander and Phil Naish.

Rick Lee James is an acclaimed singer/songwriter, worship leader, author, speaker and podcast host. His recordings include Basement Psalms Live and Hymns, Prayers & Invitations. James’ 2018 hit, “Advent Hymn,” remained at #1 on Christian Radio Weekly’s “CRW Adds Chart” for seven consecutive weeks. The song has been played on nearly 700 radio stations in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. 

James’ book, Out of the Depths: A Songwriter’s Journey Through The Psalms, is used as a textbook for the National Praise & Worship Institute at Trevecca Nazarene University. He has also been a contributor to Worship Leader magazine, Holiness TodayThe Table and Worshiplife.com. His podcast, “Voices In My Head,” has featured such leading singer/songwriters as Andrew Peterson, Sara Groves, Jason Gray, Michael Card and Paul Baloche.
