salvation makes a subtle sound (unless you turn the gain up REALLY high)

so here's the deal... i don't have internet access at my house right now. vanessa and i traded our home phone line for two cell phones and we don't have cable or direct tv, so we don't currently have access to cable internet or whatever, so anything i write i have to do it from work. and just in case anybody from church is reading, i'm doing all my blogging BEFORE OR AFTER work from my office. despite what you've heard, youth pastors don't always surf the net under the guise of "sermon research"!

the most exciting thing happening in moultrie right now... the old crew is reconveining in mo-town! buddy (illian) and scott (turner) have been in town for a while, but recently clint (knight) moved back and now jonap (jonathan napier) is considering relocating his clan to "the city of southern living"! a little history lesson... jonap, clint and i played together from about '94 until about '99 in a band called "joshua generation." the only former member that's not around is jim fountain, who is still settled somewhere around hartwell, ga (last i heard). buddy and scott were friends of ours in high school who had a great rock band called "stinkbomb" that they converted to a christian rock band named "j.a.r." joshgen and j.a.r. played LOTS of shows together over the years and we often swapped members back and forth under special situations.

so the next natural question... is a new band in the works? we don't really know. we all got together last saturday night to play for a couple of hours (we were only missing buddy). it was, well... INCREDIBLE!!! i absolutely LOVE playing with these guys... there's nothing that can take the place of friendships that were forged through years of music and countless hours of hanging out. that kind of connection comes through the music. i'm excited... i don't know what will happen, if anything, but it's incredible to be with such great friends again. jim, we miss you!

yes, i'm still here

sorry for the lack of posting... jonap constantly reminds me that i'm a horrible blogger. in fact, he actually had to leave michigan and visit moultrie to convince me to lose my lazy blogging habits and post. so, for all of you who might happen to swing by with faint but jaded hopes that something new would be here... i'm back! (at least for now... no promises!)

reading: recently i've read through matthew 5-7 (olivet discourse), joel, hebrews... i'm usually reading psalms, but recently i've gone back to proverbs for devotional reading.

listening to: switchfoot "nothing is sound," sarah brendel "sarah brendel," merchant band "merchant band"
