I know Christmas seems like a long ways off, but I am excited about this new worship project called Still Shining. The star that led the wise men to Jesus’ birthplace is still shining, still leading us to Jesus. Every Advent season, I am drawn into worship by the miracle of God coming to earth as a baby. The wonder of God’s incarnation never gets old.
The title track for this album came to me during Christmas season, 2014. Most songs I write never get recorded, but I knew I wanted to record Still Shining someday. The project started to take shape in May of this year, and quickly gained momentum. This project is about worshiping Jesus, and using a variety of moods to do it – joy, celebration, adoration, and quiet meditation through instrumental worship hymns. It was tons of fun to collaborate with many friends on this project! The album will be released in October.
