The Practice of Sight / Motherhood

Light crawls from the corner up the molding, then spreads across the glass panes one by one, sheets of glowing sun.   Silence rests on the yellow chair across the room, like a comfortable friend, sharing in the dawn of this day through angled shadows on the patterned tweed. A gentle hum emerges from a city waking, starting its engines, opening doors and arms to another day of possibility. Selling stocks, cheese, adds, energy, coffee.  Feet begin to treat the grid of yet another day. Then I ...

The Liturgists

Today, we released the second installment of an experimental art collective known as ‘The Liturgists.’  All the music on this project was written by us (Lisa and I), but we were lucky enough to collaborate on this release with some amazing people like Rachel Held Evans, Rob Bell, Amena Brown (the poet Gungor has toured with before), Aaron Purdy (the music guy at Bloom), and of course, Mike McHargue (aka Science Mike). Since we have been focusing most of our touring and marketing energy o...

What Do We Believe?

Let’s do a little experiment together. Pick up some droppable object near you. Keys, a pillow, a small child, whatever.

I just picked up a stuffed rabbit that happened to be on the couch. Now using your free will, REALLY t...

We’ve toured as a three piece acoustic ensemble. We’ve toured as a five, piece, a six piece, a 10 piece and a 12 piece. We’ve utilized poetry, movements, string sections and drum solos. So what should you expect on this “I Am Mountain” tour? Well, first of all, I would consider this tour one of the most musicall...

The Best Part – About The Song

I awoke to a mess of curly hair atop a pink princess dress peaking around our bedroom door. She scuffled to the bed and crawled her way onto her Daddy’s chest, head tucked into his neck. “I think I should eat an Oreo,” she whispered. Good morning of a new year. I lay there thinking about the past year – the traveling, the shows, breathtaking places we had seen, songs written, mistakes, failures, accomplishments. We have had the privilege of visiting some of the most incredible ...
