This album, released last year by the Canadian worship man, is aimed to serve the sharing of grace stories. This idea is reflected through the album, which comprises a selection of new songs, as well as some pieces with which listeners will be more familiar. It begins with the opening track co-written with Paul Baloche Welcome To The Place Of Level Ground" and continues with "The Jesus Way", with simple lyrics adapted from Psalm 25 and with a particularly catchy tune. A little way into the album there is a powerful take on Tim Hughes' "Everything (God In My Living)" that fits in nicely with the rest of the album. "Here Is Love/Give Thanks" is an original twist combining the two well known songs which, considering the familiarity, emerge with surprising freshness. Some of Doerksen's new songs, such as "No Condemnation" show that veteran Doerksen has lost none of his winning ways in composing memorable worship material.
