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.

Holy God We Praise Thy Name

This is going to be the last song on the new album( that I've been working on for over one year now.) I asked Rich Mullins to intercede for me as I was recording the hammer dulcimer parts. I think God heard his prayers. Let me know what you think. (Click on song 2 below)
I hope and pray your observance of Lent is bringing you all closer to Jesus.

Russ! You Rock... in a not so "rock" sort of way in this song. You want to know what is weird? I just downloaded a Choral version of this song today off of itunes.. what beautiful words and man, you have captured the beauty of those words in pure melody, harmony and rhythm.

I missed your posting over Lent. I am looking forward to your come back :) Don't forget that owen and I want to spice up your albums visual life. I am certain that we along with you will make something masterful to match the music :)

Brown nosing session has ended :) I am sincere my friend!

In Christ,

I love the song Jewel of the Caribbean. It so reminds me of my missions to Haiti

Rich M. and you are w/out a doubt linked musically and spiritually as brothers, and will be one "dynamic duo" in heaven! :)
