Here’s an album from a church situated in Fort Wayne, Indiana that features a live congregational worship setting for some excellent songwriting that has been birthed from the church. Some of the songs have already made their way into the Spring Harvest songbook and there is a brilliant vibey version of the best known song, “Keep Me” which pulsates with life. Other highlights include the acoustic-driven “Come And See” with its invitation to taste God’s deeds whilst “Send Revival” is a post September 11th cry for God to move. Aside from the church’s clear wealth of songwriters, there’s even an excellent re-working of the old hymn “All Hail The Power Of Jesus’ Name”. If you’re bored with some of the clich├ęd, lacklustre live worship recordings that have come out in recent times, you’ll find this is something a little more liberated.
