05/19/13: What's Greg doing this summer (besides the usual stuff like mowing the lawn)? This week I'll be leading morning worship at the IAPCHE conference at Calvin College, an international group of educators, who will join me in singing from Global Songs for Worship. Next up will be the CICW Grants Colloquium. If you're local to Grand Rapids, you should seriously consider signing up for the free Day of Learning where I'll be giving a workshop called "The Worship Team's 'Other' Instruments." In July (14-18) I'll be leading a "re-tuned" hymn sing and doing a presentation on the Praise & Worship Movement at the Hymn Society Conference in Richmond, VA. Looking to the fall will be a visit to Samford University October 7-9, and a Novevmber 14 hymn sing at the Calvin Noontime Series called "Hymns that Time Forgot."
05/09/13: The new CRC/RCA hymnal, Lift Up Your Hearts, is now available. It includes three of my songs (#332 As the Deer, #562 We Will Extol/One Generation, #728 People of the Lord), three of my global song translation/arrangements (#609 Shukuru Yesu, #708 Kwake Yesu, #911 Abana), and a bunch of my arrangements (#15 The First Place, #283 O God of Love, #298 Salaam, #349 I Will Sing a Song of Triumph, #535/811 The Lord Be with You, #608 Salvation Belongs, #651 By the Babylonian Rivers, #744 In Great Thanksgiving, #761 I Will Hide Your Word, #807 All Who Are Thirsty, #882 Grant Now Your Blessing).
04/06/13: Hear the inimitable Brooks Ritter sing my song "Lord God, Now Let Your Servants Depart in Peace" on The Gospel Coalition's new CD, Songs for the Book of Luke. The whole project is great. Buy it.
03/10/13: A new Cardiphonia compilation CD is out--that's always a source of rejoicing. This time Hallel Psalms is the theme. A trippy recording of my Psalm 114 song, "Tremble Before the Lord," is included.
03/01/13: Looking for some Pentecost songs? The latest issue of Reformed Worship (March 2013 No.107, p18) includes an article written by me, Elly Boersma, and Laura de Jong entitle "Singing the Spirit." Among a number of recommendations is my own song based on Veni Creator Spiritus, O Holy Spirit, Come!.
