Overview

The Ancient Path was birthed as a result of hearing continued stories and reading surveys of Christian leaders burning out under the weight of stress and worry. Needing to recharge myself, I rediscovered one of Scriptures most familiar wells of life, and I reacquainted myself with the life giving message contained within Psalm 23. The message is one of peace, rest, and contentment which manifests in our lives, but only with our level of trust and time spent with The Great Shepherd.

I then took the main themes of the text and began to write a collection of songs designed to provide a musical devotional time for the listener. The result is the The Ancient Path. A project the goal of which is simply to draw the heart into a quiet place within the presence of God, and in that place to reflect upon Jesus the divine caregiver and provider of all we will ever need to accomplish the purposes of God for us in this earth life.
