Leading in the morning

I’m jumping in to lead sung worship in the morning, and it will be the very first time I’ve led auf Deutsch! I’m a bit nervous, although I’m pretty sure that this was actually the very same historical context in which Romans 8:26 was written (j/k). We’re doing a mix of German and English songs, including a couple of English translated into German songs.. Here’s what […]

Pedal builds #1: Little Red Button

As promised, here begins a little retrospective of the guitar pedals I’ve built over the last year or so. In fact, I already blogged about this pedal when I built it.

A social media fast

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now. That I’m only just now making the effort to do it, just shows how much I actually need this. Indeed, I’m already a day and a half late. For the whole month of August I’m going to stay off personal broadcast social media. For about two months now, a verse has been stewing away in […]
