Michael Van Patter – Songs in the Night


Michael writes that “This is an album borne of long nights, impossible questions, fear, waiting, and hope. These are songs for the brokenhearted.”  Michael is one of my favorite artists in the church. He is a talented songwriter and arranger, an astute liturgical pastor, and a lover of good design.  This new album grows out of a season of wrestling with a rare form of leukemia in his young son.

This album and the new book by J Todd Billings “Rejoice in Lament” are exceptional places to go if you are wanting to grow in your ability to lament and pastor a people of lament.
