"Heard nothing but great comments yesterday even from a lot of people who don't usually "get in" to the music service. Everyone left with a "great feeling of worship" yesterday. We so appreciate you guys!!! Tony turned 42 yesterday and he said "I got a really great concert for my birthday this morning"!"
We love it when something we do touches people and this program was especially special to us as it marks the return of X-ALT! to doing what it has always been our plan to do. To take the word, the music and the blessings that God has given us all to people everywhere, whenever and wherever they will have us.
X-ALT! will be doing a short set at the Community Easter Event at Antioch Park (off Blue Hole Road) next Saturday (March 27th) hosted by Antioch UMC and Easter Sunday many of us will take part in the Easter Service at New Beginnings Church and we will be joined by a horn section made up of some younger X-ALT'ers. Mark you calendar for this special service that begins at 11:00 am.
Looking to the future we are hoping to be part of some up-comming festivals, we will continue our prison ministry and are in talks with the Nashville Rescue Mission to possibly begin doing a service there. It's looking to be a busy Summer for X-ALT! and that's the way we like it.
Thanks for your prayers for our group, we feel them all!

The three Pastors that took part in the service found a common ground in God's love. Pastor Arthur Alexander. Pastor Dan Shapley and Pastor Ron Baptiste.
The following weekend we were invited to Pastor Baptiste's Church - Covenant Confirmers Church in Springfield - for their annual Biker Rally. I can only say that a great time was had by all, especially us in that we were joined by Sister Rita Hardison of "The Sounds Of Life" choir to cover for the vacationing Tom Landers. My goodness can the girl sing!!!!!
Hey there is more pictures and videos to come so check back soon.

I've been doing a lot of thinking, praying, crying, and generally feeling pretty upset lately.
Last night I took a walk and prayed the whole time I was out for some guidance. I told God I needed something good to happen because I was having a lot of trouble finding anything good to hold on to. What I just discovered is that God has been giving good things in abundance lately and I've just been in such a negative place that I've been refusing to see them. Tommy's new song that I've posted above really helped me when I stumbled on it hiding on my desktop as an un-named file. Although there is a lot of crap hanging around my neck right now I have to try and look at the bigger picture. Sunday morning we were blessed to participate in a homecoming service at Richland Baptist Church that saw some folks come forward and rededicate their lives to Christ. Five hours later we were behind bars at Riverbend Maximum Security Prison worshiping with a group of men who literally have nothing left but when they hit bottom they looked up and found their salvation through the love of Christ and God Almighty. Next Saturday we see one of our own, Mark Mills become an ordained minister then on Sunday we get to worship with our family at New Beginnings then later that afternoon take part in a praise concert at Word Of Life Christian Center. My faith is strong, my family has their health and I believe that God is at work in this world and we have nothing to fear.
Are there going to be bumps on my personal road? Sure. But if I can keep my eyes focused on THE ONE who made me,THE ONE who saved me and THE ONE that will lead me home then those bumps will not seem as bad and there will always be a bright horizon ahead.

I've got a couple of pictures to share. These are from a recent show we did for the good folks at West Nashville Southern Methodist Church as part of their "Homecoming" celebration. We were a little rusty that day and were missing Mark Mills (our big toe) but it was fun to get out and sing the glory of God.
We start recording the new CD on August 16th then we will be back on the road trying to get out and play for all the folks that we had to put on hold during Mark's cancer surgery and recovery. It's going to be a busy fall in X-alt Land and I can't wait!!!!
See you all soon
