New Gentle Wolves Track "Do Not Be Afraid"


When we set my final date back in the fall I knew what my last liturgy would be called: Do Not Be Afraid. We didn’t, however, know how turbulent things would be within our community and in our denomination. Though my departure is completely unrelated to both of these circumstances, it seems that God is already planning the next phase in the life of Servant Church, and his Church worldwide. It can be a time for fear or a time for hope.

Because of all of this, in collaboration with long time Wolves Ross Gilfillan, Paul Price, and Molly Kentopp, I wrote and recorded this song for the people of Servant Church. I hope it can offer encouragement to those who mourn, and peace those who face an uncertain future.

Friends, look to the Lord together and do not be afraid!

Here is the chord chart.

New Music: The Gentle Wolves' live album "Waiting" now available!


With the anticipatory season of Advent being imminent, I'm proud to announce Waitingthe second live album from the Gentle Wolves. It's a collection of seven songs recorded at Servant Church's worship back on July 30th, 2017. It is now available digitally on the Gentle Wolves' website, and through their bandcamp page.

Relying heavily on Tom Waits, the patron saint of reverent agnosticism, we were able to extract a meaningful thread that week which perfectly fits the pregnant pause that is Advent. I hope that this can be both meaningful and useful for you as we prepare for Christmas.

1) We Are Waiting Blessed Savior (an RK retune)
2) Way Down in the Hole (Tom Waits)/Wade in the Water (traditional)
