In II Timothy, the writer urges the younger leader to 'be urgent in season and out of season.' The first CD of this series was 'Out Of Season' which is perhaps another way of saying that I am 'out of sync' with a lot of what passes as church stuff. It was folk rock and blues, hardly the favorite musical styles for Sunday morning. It was saying that God so loved the world that secular sounds and styles could also be used to proclaim the good news. This time let us be urgent 'In Season,' that is, Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. It won't sound like your regular Christmas album. I promise. A few notes about it is all about: There is a Season. Wrote it after attending a James Taylor concert.

My Soul Magnifies. The Magnificat has been rendered so wonderfully in classical music. But how aabout a moe nitty gritty setting? Don't those women deserve a little liberation too? Lead Donna Daley. Rumor Hasa It. If the Doors had cut a Christmas album, I'd like to think something like kthis would be on it. Long, Long Way to Bethlehem. Did you ever wonder what the Magi were thinking about on thier long ride? What are they saying about us back home? Are we crazy to be doing this? Won't You Follow. The message of the incarnation is a mystery; not just an unknown but an unknowable. The only way to respond is not through the understanding but through action. Creche Liberation Song. Sometimes our sentimentality freezes our spirituality. I protest. High Into the Light. Street lights can play tricks on your vision on snowy nights. So can greed, pollution, and violence even during the day. Epiphany is about finding a better source of light. Jesus at The Waters. We human beings depend on rituals to provide structure and meaning to our lives. Baptism tells us that we can start again. Thank you, Jesus! Climbing Down. A part of the rhythm of the Gospel is that there are times to descend. Her's to a little downward mobility.
