Steve’s New Book…”The Hunt for Faith”

A Very Encouraging Letter

We recently sang at a church in Cookeville, TN and included the song, “Let’s Call It Even.” In response to the story in the song that features the reconciliation of a dad and a daughter, a sweet lady approached us after the morning service and said she was moved to go see her dad. She told us that her relationship with her father had not been good and to make the challenge even harder he had Alzheimers disease.

We advised her to pray that God would give him an awareness of who she was when she visited him so some healing conversation could happen. A couple of weeks later we received the letter shown below. We were given permission to post it but for the sake of her privacy we blurred her last name and the name of the church. We offer this as an encouragement to anyone who longs to reconcile with a parent or any family member or friend.

Daddy’s Best Sermon

      Fathers Day always reminds me of what a great Dad my sister and I had. The song “Daddy’s Best Sermon” was written as a birthday gift to Dad when he was still with us. He’s been with the Lord since Nov 28, 2015.

      Paul J Chapman pastored for many years in Point Pleasant, WV. The song lyric you’ll hear in the video highlights the fact that his great skill in the pulpit was backed up by his integrity as a husband and father. My Mother, Lillian, my sister, Jeannie, and the members of each of our families are proud of his legacy and we look forward to seeing him again.

 

“Daddy’s Best Sermon” is available at this time only as a free video view. If you, too, were raised in the home of a Dad who was a pastor and who earned your respect, I hope you’ll share this song with him.

This Is Why We Stand

An important reminder as we head to the football stadiums this fall…



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This Is Why We Stand
 
For every little boy who wants to be
Just like his soldier dad he will never see again
This is why we stand
For every little girl who will marry someday
Without her soldier dad to give away  her hand
This is why we stand
For every brokenhearted dad and mom
Waiting for a soldier child to come home
On that Angel Flight, and they watch it land
 
This is why we stand for the red white and blue
As they sing those words written down for me and you
To remember, freedom has a price
To say our thanks for their sacrifice
This is why…this is why we stand 
 
For every tear that falls through the night
From the face of soldier’s lonely wife…she’s missing him
This is why we stand
For every family table with an empty chair
Cause a son or a daughter won’t be there to hear “Amen.”
This is why we stand
For every wound and every scar
That can be found on a soldier’s heart…
and in their mind and on their skin
 
Cho…
 
We stand…Cause every reason we can
Has a name, and a face, and they fight to keep us safe
 
Cho…

Still a Lot of Love

“So to those who are saying this country’s filled with hate, what you see and what I’m seeing ain’t the same…”


Still A Lot of Love

 

I see people helping strangers

Who are on the highway broken down

I see neighbors helping neighbors

After a storm comes through their town

I see firemen carrying babies as if they were their own

Running out of the flames on the TV news

Then I hear somebody saying

This country’s filled with hate

But from what I see…it ain’t true

There’s still a lot of love,

There’s still a lot of love…here in America

 

I hear applause in the airports

For the soldiers coming home

I hear nurses cry for the feeble

Who feel lost and all alone

I see hands reaching deep, way down in the pockets

To feed the poor…and ease the pain

So to those who are saying

This country’s filled with hate

What you see and what I’m seeing ain’t the same

There’s still a lot of love

Still a lot of love…here in America

 

There’s still a lot of good hearts giving out sweet smiles

Still a lot of willing souls going those extra miles

Still a lot of kind words, still a lot of good deeds

It’s no wonder people want to come here but nobody wants to leave.

 

I still see cars coming to a stop

When the hearse comes down the road

I still see the young ones helping out the old

I still see friends of missing children giving up their time

To search the fields…side by side

 

So when we hear somebody saying

This country’s filled with hate

We all know that ain’t so

There’s still a lot of love

Still a lot of love…here in America
