Into the Woods My Master Went – Holy Week 2017

I always love getting email from my Austin, TX friend Richard Kentopp (Check out his Gentle Wolves project). He and I both love the joy of spontaneous collaborations around a provocative theme.   Recently he invited six of us to all retune the same text – an ecological meditation on Christ at the Mount of Olives.  Thanks to Josh Banner at the Invitation Podcast for producing my track.
