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. The five-song EP is offered FREE for you to download and share.

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.
