There is an inherent desire for us to discover our roots and heritage. For many, it is a longing to know where we’ve come from so we can know where we’re going. Keith & Kristyn Getty and their daughters revisited the people and places that are part of their beautiful heritage in Northern Ireland and their Scots-Irish history and how that music flowed to America and influenced the Church. On Friday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Keith Getty shares how that experience shaped the direction of their new album, “Confessio – Irish American Roots”.
For many of us living in this world right now, we don't remember a time when our culture was so divided and in such a state of turmoil. There are traditional ways we lead--for example, with clear vision, proper attitude and an achievable goal. However, if you are leading your family in a time like this, leadership is different. Licensed professional counselor, Jeff Bercaw joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Friday and shares how you need to know your self, your weaknesses, and know your Enemy. Optimize the resources the Lord has afforded you, and protect your flock. Be still, and know that He is God. Ps. 46:10.
Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of music today as preeminent modern hymn writers. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, they have created a catalogue of songs teaching Christian doctrine and crossing the genres of traditional, classical, folk and contemporary composition which are sung the world over. They’re best known for “In Christ Alone,” along with the popular U.S. recording, Awaken The Dawn and Joy – An Irish Christmas. The Gettys' hymns are used increasingly both in contemporary and traditional circles, being included in most modern hymnbooks (with a number of these now listing “Getty” as the most-featured composers), while in the more contemporary church, more than 60 of their songs are featured on top 2,000 CCLI charts between the UK and USA. The Gettys live between Northern Ireland and Nashville with their four daughters.
