Athens weekend

So Roy and I got to go to Athens this past weekend. It was eventful as well as relaxing. This pic to the left pretty much sums up what most of the weekend looked like. From Jittery Joe's to Cups to Hot Corner, we spent most of the time in coffee shops reading and personal computing. Roy also worked on his new website/blog.

One of the highlights for me was being able to see Red Mountain play Saturday night, as well as lead worship at Christ Community Sunday morning. If you've been reading this blog for any amount of time, I'm sure you've become aware of this group of musicians from Birmingham. They pretty much take old unknown hymns and write music to them. And the hymns, unlike a lot of modern day stuff, engage my heart because they talk a lot about how messed up we are, but how much more gracious God is. So, check them out if you haven't already.

Here's what the rest of the weekend looked like:

Athens-based Terrapin Brewing Co. had a grand opening Saturday, so we got to sample some pretty good beer.

We also got to meet the newest member of the Bryant family, Ethan.


  1. David,

    good to meet you this weekend. thanks for writing about our music on your blog. we're really bad at marketing, so we'll take all the help we can get...

    and thanks for listening. it's really encouraging to know that these songs are meaningful to other people. makes it feel like it's work worth doing.

    anyway. shoot me an email and I'll send you that song.
