Matthew 5, John 14:5, adapt. JLB
With music and text adaptations by John L. Bell, these short pieces are inspired by the words of Jesus. “Amen, Amen, It Shall Be So!” is based on the Beatitudes; “I Am the Vine” is taken from John 15:5; and “Don’t Be Afraid” can be a powerful source of comfort during times of personal or corporate grief. A number of suggestions for use from the composer are included.
