Friends! I’m pleased to present the artwork for my new album, ‘V’. The album contains 12 songs. It’s the best thing I’ve ever made and I can’t wait for you to hear it!
'V' comes out in Japan one month today via Rallye Label! To all my Japanese friends, I’ll be playing for you in November and you can pre-order the album here.
If you’re one of the Kickstarter backers who helped me make the record, you’ll be receiving ‘V’ in the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye on your inbox! You can also check out some xclsv album news here.
If you don’t live in Japan and you didn’t back me on Kickstarter, don’t fret! The album will be available everywhere SOON. More updates as I have them. Thx for waiting!
Until then, you can hear two new songs on SoundCloud.

May all your expectations be frustrated.
May all your plans be thwarted.
May all your desires be withered into nothingness.
That you may experience the powerlessness and the poverty of a child and sing and dance in the love of God the Father, the Son and the Spirit.

Christianity wasn’t an argument I could win, or even resolve. It wasn’t a thesis. It was a mystery that I was finally willing to swallow.
I was loved by a big love. In the midst of suffering, of hunger, even of death. Alleluia. What was, finally, so hard about accepting that?

The disciples’ mistake was also my mistake. They forgot that they have a God who created the universe out of “nothing,” that can put flesh on dry bones “nothing,” that can put life in a dusty womb “nothing.” I mean, let’s face it, “nothing” is God’s favorite material to work with. Perhaps God looks upon that which we dismiss as nothing, insignificant, and worthless, and says “Ha! Now that I can do something with.”

Live stories worth telling! Stop hitting the snooze button. Try not to squander your life on meaningless, multi-tasking bullshit.

Week 30: Cranky, Beautiful Faith – Nadia Bolz-Weber
Potty-mouthed pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber tells her journey with faith in her own irreverent, hilarious, insightful style. Brutally honest and big-hearted, it’s one of the best books I’ve read this year.
