Public Theology of a Different Sort


Coming soon to iTunes, AmazonMP3, and Spotify, my song "Paper and a Ring," featuring the altogether lovely Kerry Skiles!

The song is "public theology" of a different sort. I wrote it for my sister's recent wedding, and I took the themes from a lecture Tim Keller delivered in promotion for his book on marriage. It is a very unusual love song in our context, since it celebrates the need for "a piece of paper," the importance of a lifelong covenant commitment for marital happiness.

Kerry and I recorded this in one take, live in front of a microphone. No overdubs or fancy mixing.

I will stream the song for you here, and let you know when downloads are available in stores. Hope you like it!
