Well, yesterday was a good day. A stressful day with a lot of hard work, but a good day. We started on the Love Your Neighbor song. It was a bit unwieldy but I think we did a good job. Then we spent the second half of the day on a song called There Is Coming A Day. Paul thinks it’s a smash. I don’t really know what that means anymore, but I was pleased with how it came out. This has been a really neat experience. Two songs that I had a very simple minimalistic view of, Paul has seen greatness in them. Honestly I thought There Is Coming A Day would be a Patty Griffin, acoustic guitar over background keyboards, honest, thoughtful last song on the record. Instead it’s pretty massive. I’m really looking forward to how it turns out. It’s taken out of Isaiah 25 if anyone wants to spend some time there before the record comes out. In half a year. That’s a lot of good time to study it.
Today I think we’re going to take a crack at You Are Good. So all you home folks from the Austin Stone will have a song on here. honestly, in all my preparation, I had forgotten it. But when I led at church a few weeks ago, one of our pastors walked up and said, “This one’s going to be on there, right?” So we’re going to record it. I actually wrote it because we needed a song for communion one Sunday. We don’t really have any songs for communion any more. Well, hopefully we will after today.
Please be praying for us today. It’s the same team: Paul, Scott, Sadler, and Denton. Thanks.
