IN THE STUDIO with Michael Card

This week's IN THE STUDIO recording session with Mike Card and friends turned out to be yet another encouraging and refreshing two days of radio production. Joe Carlson, our producer, does a great job of planning each session, but the amazing thing is to see what surprises God has in store for us as people come and go. We get plenty of programs recorded, but also spend lots of time just enjoying each other's company. At any given moment there might be 10 or more people in the control room, and there might be 3 or 4 small group conversations all going on at the same time-- some really serious, and some really hilarious as the stories just fly. God is good to bring such friends together. Among the radio guests was Mart DeHaan of RBC Ministries, Lance Mansfield of the By/For Project, Jason Gray who joined us for the first time-- a great, young songwriter that Michael has gotten to know recently, and Andrew Peterson-- another incredible songwriter who came by unexpectedly, but it gave us a chance to talk to him about his first book which has just been published. Larry Warren of African Leadership came and brought a brother named Bobby Maynard who is South African but joining the staff of African Leadership in Franklin, TN. Jeff Taylor came to join Mike on some hymns for the show, and my friend Tom Sabella dropped in and introduced us to Royce Taylor , formerly of The Stamps Quartet, who has been singing in Gospel music for a long time. Not everyone joined us on the radio program, but we sure enjoyed the fellowship and community. The Mole End Studio has become a very special place to experience community and create radio programs.
