When a beautiful jacket sits on a beautiful chair in a beautiful office. Since I can only add the jacket to my own personal possessions I think I will!

A Tiny Concert Series


We’ve been doing A “tiny concert” for the past two months. It’s a great way for all of our friends to get together and have a reason to continue making music and growing our passion/talent/abilities. It’s been so fun. This month We did it on a roof top! Was amazing. Above is a video of the ladies killing their songs! Awesome stuff.

THAT MAN IS BLEST

I’ve been looking to start writing some worship songs, or just music in general using the great words of the great Godly man, Isaac Watts. Upon browsing Cyber Hymnal I can across a Hymn he wrote called That Man is Blest Who Stands in Awe written from the Psalms of David. Below are a few verses:

“That man is blest who stands in awe
Of God, and loves His sacred law.
His seed on earth shall be renowned;
His house the seat of wealth shall be,
an in exhausted treasury,
And with successive honors crowned.

His liberal favors he extends,
to some he gives, to others lends;
A generous pity fills his mind:
Yet what his charity impairs,
He Saves by prudence in affairs
and thus he’s just to all mankind.

Ill tidings never can surprise
His heart that fixed on God relies,
though waves and tempest roar around:
safe on the rock he sits, and sees
the shipwreck of his enemies,
and all their hope and glory drowned.

The wicked shall his triumph see,
and gnash their teeth in agony,
to find their expectations crossed;
they and their envy, pride and spite,
sink down to everlasting night,
and all their names in darkness lost.”

What really struck me was when I was reading through James today. In chapter 1:12-15 “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.”

Super cool when I’m able to connect the dots and themes from across many books and generations. God’s story of redemption remains.

The Gospel According to Mark Pt. 1

The Gospel According to Mark Intro from Downtown Cornerstone Church on Vimeo.

Got the privilege to be involved in the making of the intro video for Downtown Cornerstone’s next sermon series going through the Gospel of Mark. It was fun to “play” actor! I also composed, played, and recorded the song for this video. There will be a few more as we progress through the gospel of Mark and I plan to link the music together, with each video musically starting where the last left off, and in the end it will be on larger piece of music.

People involved in this video: Peter Isaza, Leah Dankertson, Chelsey Scheffe, Jose Guillen, Cyrus Soheili, and William West.

Looking forward to working on the next one!
