A Hope and A Future at Spry Church on May 21, 2107!

Three years ago, my pastor Ken Loyer at Spry Church - A United Methodist Congregation in York, Pennsylvania, commissioned me to write a song based on Jeremiah 29:11 for our New Capital Gains project. We celebrate the three year process to improve our church building this Sunday, May 21, 2017!


As I thought about what he asked me to do, I realized I already had written a song based on this scripture.


When I revisited the lyrics, I realized that the original version was written from the perspective of "I have problems and God will eventually fix them" type song. That seems to be the theme of many Contemporary Christian Music songs today. 


I realized that I didn't want the song to come this perspective for the things that were happening at our church. I looked into the scriptures again from Jeremiah 29:11 - 14 and made the song more upbeat and bright, as if we had already found our hope and future in God!  


The below video is the version I will be singing this Sunday, May 21, 2017, for our Celebration Sunday!
