For those of you who are just tuning in, “The Fall – EP” is part 2 of a two EP worship project titled “The Rise & The Fall”. On January 1, 2014 (our anniversary) my wife and I took a HUGE leap and launched a Kickstarter campaign that would fund this worship project and with the prayers and backing of over 250 amazing people we exceeded our goal and have been able to go on the most incredible journey to bring these songs to you.
“The Fall – EP” particularly comes from a very deep place in Kelley and I. The song “Hold Me Still” was the very first song we wrote after our precious daughter Aria Joy went to be with the Lord. “All of You” was such a personal reminder of ALL that Christ had given us in the midst of what felt like the greatest loss we’d ever experienced. “Burn Afresh” is a declaration and a prayer boasting in the relentless love of God and requesting that we be compelled by that love, especially on the days when we don’t “feel” like it. “Lay it Down” is an anthem of surrender and trusting God beyond what we can understand or control. This EP also features a spoken word piece written by Kelley that may easily be one of the best messages I’ve heard when it comes to grief and suffering. I believe this EP is full of honest confessions and hope-filled declarations that every believer can connect to in the various places of life.
We’ve posted charts and lyrics here on the blog for those of you interested in playing these songs in church or for your personal devotion.
So many of you have been supportive of this project on Facebook and twitter! Thank you…thank you…thank you!!! PLEASE CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE WORD! We want these songs to reach as many people as God would have them reach!
As I did with “The Rise – EP” release, I wouldn’t be posting anything if it weren’t for the service and sacrifice of so many! Since “The Fall – EP” release is only digital I wanted to make sure I posted the album credits on my blog. Here are some of the amazing people who made this possible!!!
