Blog Backlog Soundtrack - Leeland

Talk about a blog backlog...

I've been very focused over the past few weeks.

God. Family. Vision. People. Scripture. Order. Strength. Strategy. Stuff like that. :-)

I can honestly say that I've never been more excited about what's ahead for Compass than I am right now. God has been doing some very cool things around us here, lately and I'm looking forward to seeing where some new developments end up taking us. More on this later.

It's been awesome, but hasn't provided much time for blogging.

Fortunately, as many of you know, I usually have my "Un-wired-er Analog PDA Mind Map" with me or close by during the day, so I have a little log of blog posts that I'll be getting around to before long.

To ease back in, and because I'm short on time, here's a little of my life soundtrack for the past week or so:

Leeland is a cool new band from the great state of Texas. I've enjoyed listening to a few of the songs from their site, and I like that the drummer (on the far right) looks a little like "Hurley" from "Lost."

One song in particular, "Tears of the Saints," could easily be a lyrical anthem for our church. The first time I listened to the words of that song, I got a bit of a lump in my throat and a steely resolve in my heart.

I can't believe I just said, "steely resolve in my heart," but that describes it pretty well, actually... "Father, we will lead them home..."

Check out their MySpace at, and look for the new release, "Sound of Melodies" on August 15, 2006.

It is so great to hear the passion in your voice! Just reading about your excitment makes me excited! Are you planning things for fall that have got you really ticking right now?
Thanks for writing this and helping me to refocus on what is important and get working on what we are going to do at our church.

Hey, thanks for the encouragement, L.J.

There are many cool things in the works right now. I'll post more about it all before long!
