Once again, thanks to all the folk who make this possible. Your love and support is what has kept us going for these 21+ years.


For the last several years I have attended and lectured at the Texas meeting of the Sovereign Grace Bible Conference. But, this year I was prevented from traveling, due to some ongoing (and very annoying) back troubles. Nevertheless, Elder Gregg Wren from The Saint’s Chapel in Mesquite, TX asked if I would record and submit teaching for this year’s conference, which I was happy to do. This year, he left it up to the lecturers to choose their own topic. Over the years, I have touched on various aspects of “tracing the seed” here at GCA. But here, for the first time, I was able to set it out in a more organized systematic way. I have titled this teaching “Seedology,” after a suggestion from David Morris. It’s in four parts. The first three sections lay out the Old Testament evidence and the fourth segment pulls it all together.

Once again, I’m so very grateful for the friendship and encouragement I have received from the Sovereign Grace Bible Conference through these many years. And here, for your dining and dancing pleasure, is Seedology —-

Theology Shorts

I am always looking for ways to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ. I started making YouTube videos 11 years ago. As the online video landscape has grown, and knowing that in this day of “cancel culture” it’s probably a good idea to have back-ups, I’ve also created channels on Lbry/Odysee:

And on Rumble:

Lately, YouTube has been promoting “short” videos, sixty seconds or less, apparently to compete with sites like TikTok. So, in my continual desire to experiment with various formats and ways to grab people’s attention, I made a handful of “short” videos in the hope that algorithms-that-be might catch on to them. Here they are (so far) —-

Hallelujah, What A Savior

It’s been a while since I fired up the recording software to make some new music. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve returned to one of my most beloved hymns and gave it a bit of a sonic update. I continue to enjoy Studio One 5 and the multiplicity of sounds and instruments that are available on the internet for free (or close to it).

2022 Embracing The Truth Conference lectures

It was my honor and distinct pleasure to return to the ETT Conference this year. It’s certainly one of my favorite annual conferences and I’m happy that it has reconvened after taking a year off owing to Covid. Below you’ll find the two lectures I presented this year as mp3 files, as well as a YouTube link to the second lecture. My assigned topic was “The Importance of the Local Church,” a subject I was more than happy to address. Again, thanks to Elders Pickett and Spickard for the invite and for letting me stand behind their pulpit one more time.

Visions of Sugarplums

I actually started this little ditty before the holidays. Then, a virus got me. But, today my head cleared a bit and I could hear (thank God). So, I finished what I started. This is a “sketch,” or musical profile that looks to capture the joy and trepidation of Christmas Eve. It’s called “Visions of Sugarplums.”

You Gotta’ Have Faith

It was probably the late 70’s when Ron Spann penned this song. Ron and I met in Los Angeles around 1984 and played music together for a while. We are friends to this day and have recorded each other’s songs, together and separately. I’ve always enjoyed his tune “You Gotta’ Have Faith.” His original arrangement was a 12/8 shuffle, light and bouncy. I decided to make it a bit more “groove oriented” but keep the 80’s feel. So here, for your dining and dancing pleasure, is my version of my friend’s song.
