Resurrected Living
"What are you going to do with your new resurrected life? This is the heroic question." Richard Rohr

Downtown Church

Patty Griffin’s new album, Dowtown Church, is amazing.  Griffin who is an outstanding songwriter whose songs have been covered by The Dixie Chicks, Solomon Burke, Kelly Clarkson, Emmy Lou Harris, and many others only writes two songs on this album.  Instead she chooses to cover many older traditional gospel songs.  The focus of this album is Griffin’s marvelous vocals, Buddy Miller’s excellent song choices, and some fantastic musicians playing live in a 150 year old church in downtown Nashville.  The result is pure musical bliss.  If you have been a Patty Griffin fan for years you will not be disappointed, and if you have yet to discover this amazing artist now is your chance.  Patty Griffin writes music for the soul and on her latest album she goes back in time to explore soul music from long ago.  God’s gift of music is such a blessing and I am thankful he has given us such a wonderful talent as Patty Griffin.
