Drink The Divine – Some of you might be surprised at how good this EP actually is!

I am humbled by some of the feedback I have been receiving on my recent EP release “Drink The Divine.” As a blogger and writer, many of you have known that I lead worship and such. But, it is likely that few of you have heard of my original material.

This podcast/blog has been updated and facelifted with Standard Theme 3.0. I already have moved my main blog, Rich Kirkpatrick’s Weblog to Standard Theme and it looks great. Now that 3.0 is out, I am happy to move WorshipMythbusters.com to the upgraded platform.

WordPress is a web 2.0, PHP-driven platform that is open-sourced and international. I self-host several sites. What makes WordPress work well is having a well-tuned theme chock full of features while being lean in the coding area. Thanks to the guys at 8BIT, the WordPress platform works so well for me.
