As most of you know, Fred Behanna, our drummer from 1999-2001, retired in late January. Since then, we have been interviewing a number of excellent candidates. We haven't made a final decision yet, but I can tell you this: Whomever we choose out of this bunch, they'll be dynamite! Thanks for all your prayers. Please pray that we choose the best person for the job and that God will open up other doors for the runners-up so their tremendous talents will also be put to good use!


Last week, I did an interview with Bob Smithhouser, the editor at "Plugged-In" Magazine, which Focus on the Family sends out to 60,000 families nationwide. He's a big fan of the band, and we ended up talking for almost an hour. He's going to either run it as a feature or as an interview in an upcoming issue. Bob says he first found out about us from a teen who wrote a letter to him. The idea of Christian parodies intrigued Bob, who'd written a few himself, so he had his secretary try to find us. He said that when he got "Biblical Graffiti" he was extremely impressed by both our abilities to replicate the originals and by the depth of our lyrics and our willingness to tackle all sorts of Bible stories and concepts and to throw verse numbers in there. Thanks to all of your friends who pray for us and who tell others like Bob about us!

God bless you!

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
