Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

My Photo
Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

He Will Listen To You

This tune is for two bloggers out there enduring some very tough times. One is in Kentucky and the other is from Canada. God bless you guys. My prayers are with you. He understands what His children need, He will listen to you. Please pray for Alan and Owen that God will meet their needs and sustain them and their families. Thanks so much.

You have a beautiful voice and great talent and heart with playing your instruments.

Curious, do you use a glass bottle slide with the Dobro?

I uses a heavy steel slide, which is the traditional slide for dobro. You need something with a lot of mass to keep it down on the strings to get that rich growl. A glass bottleneck wouldn't have the mass needed.

That was awesome man. I do love the Dobro, it gets into my bones. I appreciate that a lot. I do know He listens to me, so I keep praying even through the mess. God's Grace be with Owen as well, and with you.

p.s.: can we have a dobro mass in Kentucky here somewhere? :)

TJ, wow, this means so much to me. I opened my mail this morning before setting in to study and certainly this is God's timing. And, our dear dead dear, Mark Heard, what a force he was and his music still bears his humility, pain, joy and passion for Christ. He is, as you already know, an all time favorite of mine.

And you, you are no shabby musician yourself. More importantly, like Mark, you are a generous soul. Thanks TJ.

Praying with Alan and others who are very much on my heart.

May God our Father edify Alan, Owen and Joe.

May Jesus, our only Lord and Savior be their advocate.

May His precious blood shed for their sins also cleanse their hearts from double-mindedness.

May His precious body, given for them, nourish their souls unto strength in His service.

May the Holy Spirit comfort them and lead them. May He empower them toward living ever more accurate imitations of Christ.

May God the Father bless them and keep them and cause His face to shine upon them now and forever.

May we all so pray before God in the unity of the Holy Spirit through Jesus our Lord.


Humbly submitted,

Theo, your prayers really add up to "Lord, make these ignorant sinners into Roman Catholics like me."
You're not doing them any favors--or any good.

Onion Boy:
I didn't realize Mark Heard was a favorite, unless I forgot already!
How cool! He was an amazing soul and his music still lives on. I don't do many cover tunes at my concerts but this tune is just about the only one I do, usually at Christian venues,which have become a little less common these days ;).
As you know, Bruce Cockburn does a song as a tribute to him, "A Bone in My Ear."

I was happy to be a blessing to you and Alan. You guys are in our prayers.

And how I wish I could send this beautiful rendition to my priest friend, Fr. G. He doesn't have e-mail. He's in DESPERATE need of prayers, so please, if you all would say some for him, I'd be grateful. He's being hammered and has not a support system that some in other diocese have. The strain was in his voice yesterday when he called me - he sounded "hollow" but this song is FULL of life. Thanks TJ. You're the best! I hope I can record it somehow to send him. Would you happen to have a c.d. of this that you could send me bro? I'd be forever grateful.

On Father's behalf, thank you for your prayers.

Oh Susie, unfortunately I don't. It's not my song so I don't have the rights to record it.
But e mail me and I will see if I can get Mark Heard's original version to you.
God bless
I will pray for him
