FROM WHERE I STAND TODAY
This song was written as a reflection of my personal faith journey into the realm of Christian mysticism. As a church music director providing for the needs of the more orthodox believers, I often found myself ideologically isolated. Among the Christian ranks their aren’t that many of us. Through the years I have led the occasional discussion group on the subject for those interested, but as a rule I have kept my personal beliefs to myself. My alternate perspectives, however, have allowed me to address the Christian message with music that says different things in different ways. I offer my original lyrics as an alternate version to the more orthodox expression reflected in the power point. The sample performance is the original version.
