northern irish concert!!

I have the privilege of being a part of a concert that Paul Baloche is doing right here in Northern Ireland - Friday 3rd July at 7pm in the Causeway Coast Vineyard (the Old Dunnes - mall car park, Coleraine). I would LOVE to see you there if you are able to come. I think it’s going to be the most wonderful night!!! Tickets are £12 each (£10 concession for students and over 60s - and kids under 12 go free). You can get the tickets from our church (Causeway Coast Vineyard), and at the Faith Mission (Ballymena), or Wesley Owen (Coleraine). Can’t wait to hear if you’re able to make it :)

this last week and a half I’ve been working really hard on songs. I decided that it was time to really give myself to the process - sitting at the piano for a good few hours every day - just to see what would emerge.

It’s been so interesting - I have had so many fresh ideas - way more than I thought I had circling around inside me. Sometimes it’s just the sheer discipline that creates the space for the song to be born.

It still amazes me that regular routine is the perfect partner to creativity - but in busy lives, filled with all sorts of commitments and relationships - the promise of a regular slot of time is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves as writers.

I would love to hear how it works for you....
