"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


debut CD

I wanted to share with you all a wonderful CD.  
Matthew is one of the pastors and worship leader at my church.

Written in the inside cover is this, 

"God is in the winepress treading us with kindness crushing us in love."

"Once in a while music comes out that truly catches you off guard with it's sheer power, and In The Winepress, the debut effort from Matthew Browne, does just that. Pushing boundaries and exploring new aspects of worship music, these tracks bravely echo both honesty and reverence at the same time. Void of the standard one line shallow rhymes, this album opens more questions about what it means to follow Jesus then it provides answers inviting the listener into the struggle. A sound that is perfect in it's imperfection, it feels as human as it does inspired. For anyone holding onto faith in the face of doubt, this beautiful picture of hope will be music for the journey! "

Dear Mary,

What a lovely treat for all of us... i have come over the page and got the chance of hearing some songs of Matthew Browne via i-tunes... and i liked it... i like songs 'bout praises, God, and worship... i'd been a choir member in our Church for 2 years which led me to sing and hear more pastoral music... i hope you're having a good time in there... God Bless!!!:)
