Title: The Firehouse
If there was anything I wanted people to know about me, one of the first things I'd share with them is that I'm not perfect. I think many people who watch Christians from afar somehow get the wrong impression that we are people that have a moralist's view of the world, and hold in spite everyone that fails to achieve our standards..... Of course, this is completely not the case. As a believer (Christian), I simply recognize that I'm a fundamentally flawed person, and that without Christ as my Savior, I'd have no hope for eternity. The Bible says that the earnings of imperfection is death, but salvation is offered through the Lord Jesus Christ. I know I'm not perfect, and I've earned a "death sentence." This death sentence must be satisfied, and God in his infinite mercy provided his son Jesus to stand in the gap for me.

As far as being a musician goes, I'd have considered myself an unlikely candidate to be a songwriter 10 years ago - but I listen to my stuff, and I think, "Hey, this is actually pretty good!"



How it all got started....: I remember the day I bought my first guitar in 1987 (a "Bentley" 6 string from the Mountain Music Shop in Branson, MO).

I walked out as happy as a newly flat broke guy could be holding the neck of the guitar in my right hand, and my newly aquired guitar pick in the left hand. Of course, I didn't have a clue how to play it.

My buddies that could play thought it was the funniest thing they'd ever heard, but quickly became annoyed at me when I kept making them tune my guitar every 20 minutes. Actually, it would go out of tune, but I wouldn't notice it, but everyone else would, and it would drive them crazy. A few days went by, and finally, one of my buddies said, "Dude, you got to go ba...
The Best Concert Ever....: A few years ago, I went to a Johnny Winter concert at the Columbia Blues Festival. I got there early, and worked my way to within 10 feet of center stage (first row, but off stage right a bit). His band was warming up the crowd. I quick survey of the stage revealed the should be famous ladderback kitchen chair that Johnny sits on during the concert. It was in full spotlight, but empty.... kind of waiting for something if you know what I mean.

I focused on the empty chair, and felt the anticipation build. A few minutes later, I saw two younger men helping a very old and frail man up the steps back stage. He was hunched over so low that it was impossible to see his face, and I thought...
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year filled with love, joy, peace and beautiful music!

Brett and Rebecca

True Story:

In the mid 90's our chuch adopted a contemporary worship model, with a full band leading the music. If you'll remember from my earlier posts, I had a guitar with a pickup - so I could not let the opportunity to play amplified pass me by. Of course, I was a lousy musician, and it was quickly exposed when we were working through a song that had a "B" in it in rehersal. When we got to that part though, something just didn't sound right, so the bass player, and the other guitarist and I huddled together and we each played the offending part. At that point, it was pointed out that I was playing a Bb and not the correct note (B), to which I replied, "What's a B flat?" I had no idea that there were flats and sharps at that point.

I tell you this story to point out that where your starting point is not necessarily an indication of where you'll end up.

All:

We are still looking for unsigned, adult Christain bands to play with us out on our tour this summer. This is to be a weekend only kind of tour, so there's no need to quit your day job, and you don't have to make all the dates. Shoot me an email if you're intested. (The tour wil be in SC).

All the best,
Jonathan Wilson
