The first time I saw Steven Curtis Chapman was in my church sometime in the late 1980's. Nobody really knew who he was, but somebody knew him and invited him to come play at our church. It was him, his guitar and his stool. No band, no backup singers, just him. It was so long ago my memories are faint. I do remember he had great lyrics and could play his acoustic guitar very well. I was on the front row of a packed house. He delivered the message of Jesus to mostly teenagers. I was 42. LOL!! Steven Curtis Chapman has done pretty well since that early beginning. He's won five Grammies and fifty-nine GMA Dove Awards, the most for any artist in history.
Take a look as you listen - a great tune and video by Steven Curtis Chapman from the movie of the same name - Journey to Bethlehem - Brand New Life
The story of Bethlehem is immensely compelling, especially when seen in a modern interpretation of it in today's world.
“Advent is a journey
May we let ourselves
be drawn by the light
