A few years ago, Falls Church Anglican released a WONDERFUL live worship album called A Thousand Amens. It’s truly excellent musically, but also deeply encouraging and moving to hear a large congregation enthusiastically praising God just weeks before forced out of their historic church property after the Episcopal Church sued them and won. The album exemplifies the true meaning of a “sacrifice of praise.” How good to be able to praise God for His goodness in spite of knowing full well the sorrow and trial that was ahead.
I encourge all our readers to check out the full album.
The song Come You Sinners, written by the Falls Church worship leader Jamie Brown is very appropriate for Lent, and I’ve been enjoying it the past few days whenever it comes up in my Lenten playlist.
You can read the background to the song here at Jamie Brown’s blog. (I think the free download and chord chart / sheet music mentioned there are still available too!)
P.S. I’ve just discovered the Falls Church released another live worship album in December 2013: It’s called “We Will Proclaim” and it’s a mix of hymns, contemporary worship songs, and elements of the spoken Anglican liturgy. I’ve previewed it and it sounds excellent.
