‘I’ll Fly Away’

When I saw this hymn on the list of your favorities, I remembered there’s a video of our own dear friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson, performing it on their guitars–I’ll Fly Away, a good old-fashioned country hymn. We’re doubly thankful that the typhoon missed them last weekend.

J&J, ‘I’ll Fly Away’

This is a bonus hymn, an instrumental by our esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy: I’ll Fly Away. These two guys are very thoroughly loved around here. With young people like these (and others–you know who you are!), you just have to have hope for the future.

Yes, You Can Use a Banjo to Give Glory to God

Call it a sheltered Yankee upbringing, but I never heard hymns played on a banjo until just now. I like it!

This young woman plays He Leadeth Me (one of my favorites) and I’ll Fly Away. She slips a little, here and there, but I don’t think we ought to mind. I’m sure God doesn’t.

Something about this goes to my heart–for which I give thanks.
