"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    This Breaks My Heart of Stone (CD)

    There is clearly a “hymns resurgence” in the church and Red Mountain Church of Birmingham, AL is leading the way. They have been steadily churning out a album after album whose production is better than most any that you will hear. Their newest is titled "This Breaks My Heart of Stone" and is, in our opinion, the strongest production to date.

    "The Gadsby Hymnal obsession lives on, and for this record, worked with 9 more songs from “Gadsby’s Hymns”. We also branched out a little and spent some time working with William William's texts, which are not found in the Gadsby. We felt like two of his songs fit the collection for this record, and we decided to include them."

    "It is important to note that every song on this record was written or co-written by our friend, and fabulous Texan, Benj Pocta. We met Benj the same way everyone meets these days - on the internet, and before long we were sending demos back and forth. Benj traveled to Birmingham several times to write, write some more, and ultimately record this record with us. It’s been a work in progress and it's been our longest process yet; over a year and a half in the making as we've revised, recorded, and re-recorded. Hopefully you'll agree that these songs have been worth the wait."
