James McMurtry is one artist who has earned his solid singer/songwriter/guitarist reputation. Critics, peers and music aficionados have long praised him as being among the strongest songwriters of his generation. His works, which range from atmospheric ballads to no-holds-barred rockers, are populated by world-weary souls often longing for something different, if no better, than what they’re now enduring. Perhaps in part because of his powerful reputation as a lyricist, coupled with his stirring vocal style, McMurtry is often not given his due as a guitarist. Though not one to stoop to flash just for the sake of effect, he can rip forth with a flurry of fat-toned notes when the material demands it. In the next breath, he’ll frame a tender composition with poignant lead lines. He tends to travel with half a dozen or so guitars, which offers him a wide palate of tones and tunings from which to choose.

The new Strings Attached CD “Collaborations” features live cuts with Jimmy La Fave, Shawn Colvin, Slaid Cleaves, Ian Moore and other past performers and was on the top ten list at Waterloo Records for 10 weeks.

Proceeds from the CD benefit CASA of Travis County, an organization that helps abused and neglected children.

First Church in Waycross to Broadcast Services via the Internet, LIVE

Waycross, GA (PRWEB) June 15, 2006

Trinity United Methodist Church, today announced LIVE Internet broadcasting of its worship services. This church is the first and only one in Waycross that offers live webcast and archive video of services via the Internet. The local and global impact of this outreach is expected to be very positive.

“We are living in a Global Village today, where families and friends are widely dispersed all over the world. With this new technology we can include people who are unable to attend our services in Waycross for whatever reason,” said Pastor Don Fogal senior pastor at Trinity UMC. “Our hearts, our minds and our doors are open to all, wherever they may be,” continued Pastor Fogal.

Since its inception, Trinity has developed a reputation for being “first” in many areas. Trinity was the first church in Waycross to broadcast its services on the radio, the first to instigate Homecoming Day in this section of the state, the first to mother 2 Sunday School classes that later became churches. Trinity was the first to have a Sunday School class (Big Brothers) broadcast their lessons each Sunday on the radio, which they have done for 68 years now, local mission (House of Hope) and a 24-hour telephone prayer line. To continue this tradition, Trinity UMC is now the first church in Waycross that offers live webcast and archive video of services via the Internet.

“I am really excited to be able to greet and extend the love of Christ to everyone who view our services through this electronic medium. It is a blessing to be able to reach out to so many old friends and new acquaintances and share a little portion of heaven,” said Pastor David White, Associate Pastor at Trinity UMC.

PraiseCast is the company that provides the complete webcasting services. “ PraiseCast’s complete and unique approach to church webcasting will enable us to extend our reach and connect with people who are unable to attend in person,” said Waylan Carter, in charge of webcast ministry.

The LIVE webcasts can be viewed every Sunday morning at 11:00 am at the church’s website, Recording of these broadcasts will also be available at the same website for later viewing.
