Weekend Word From SGN Scoops

Written by scoopsnews on October 13, 2018 – 6:00 am -

Weekend Word

Jesus stooped down and with his finger, He wrote on the ground.” – John 8:6


The Pharisees had just brought an adulteress before Jesus and demanded, “Jesus, what do you say?”


The Bible doesn’t tell us what Jesus wrote in the sand that day.

Maybe He wrote scripture.

Perhaps He was writing, “Where is the man?” Doesn’t adultery involve two?

Or perhaps He was writing the sins of the Pharisees who were accusing this woman.

Maybe Jesus just needed time to collect His thoughts, because He was angry that they were humiliating this woman just to get at Him.

I have no idea what He wrote, but I’ll tell you what I believe was taking place. I believe that Jesus’ heart was absolutely breaking as He knelt in the sand. When He looked at this woman, His passion for the lost was causing His heart to break at how she was being treated as an object, unworthy of life. His heart was also breaking because He looked at the Pharisees and realized they just didn’t get it. Jesus would have been totally justified to get in the Pharisees faces and say, “You guys don’t get it! I came not to judge but to save.” (John 3:17)

But Jesus didn’t do that. He didn’t blow His top and blast them. In an amazing display of self-control and compassion for this woman, He finally stood and said, “Whoever is without sin, you throw the first stone.”

They slowly drifted away, dropping their stones as they left. Jesus, in a moment, transferred the humiliation from the woman to the religious men. What wisdom. What a man, this Jesus. You gotta love Him. I surely do. How about you?

(Right From The Heart Ministries)

Happy Saturday!

As one of the most highly acclaimed performers of our time with five Grammy® awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three platinum records, five gold records, and eleven million units sold, Sandi Patty is simply known as “The Voice.”
Sandi is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards.

She has released over 30 albums and this November 2018, will release her latest book,The Voice.
Sandi was introduced to the world with her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers. Her version of the national anthem has become synonymous with patriotic celebration, including performances at “A Capitol Fourth” with the National Symphony, the Indianapolis 500, the Dedication of Camp David Chapel, and ABC’s Fourth of July Special.
While her thirty-year career is heavily rooted in the gospel music industry, Sandi has had the opportunity in more recent years to extend her career outside the genre. Sandi has performed with symphonies across the country, including the New York Pops, Boston Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic. She also headlined the title role in sold-out performances of the musical “Hello, Dolly!” with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, co-starring Tony Award winner Gary Beach in January 2012.
In addition to her prolific musical career, Sandi is also an accomplished author. For the bestseller Broken on the Back Row, Sandi received the 2006 Silver Angel Award. Her down-to-earth style and sturdy common sense have endeared her to Women of Faith® audiences, with whom she has traveled with since 2005. She’s an example to all of us of the freedom that comes from learning how to move on, learning from her mistakes and letting God use her in any circumstance.
“I am grateful for the many opportunities for God has given in my life and for how He has allowed me to spread my wings,” says Sandi. “Singing is my way to tell my story of hope, life, and love.”
Sandi and her husband, Don, have eight children. They currently reside in Oklahoma City, OK.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GRAMMY® and Dove Award-winning vocalist Russ Taff returned to the Grand Ole Opry® stage last weekend, as the new documentary, Russ Taff: I Still Believe, prepares to hit more than 700 theaters across the country October 30. Taff joined Platinum-selling country hitmaker Chris Young and legendary Grand Ole Opry® members The Whites and Connie Smith, among others, for the star-studded Friday evening show at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry House. Accompanied by an all-star band, Taff performed his classics “I Cry” and “Winds Of Change” for an enthusiastic audience.

Russ Taff: I Still Believe (Fathom Events/Fuseic Entertainment) chronicles the multi-GRAMMY® and Dove Award winning artist’s unparalleled musical journey and behind-the-scenes battle with alcoholism. The film includes appearances from Amy Grant, MercyMe’s Bart Millard, Michael W. Smith, Newsboys’ Michael Tait, Bill Gaither, and comedians Mark Lowry and Chonda Pierce. Immediately following the film, theater audiences will have the opportunity to view a special acoustic session with Taff and multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman. Playing in cinemas nationwide October 30 at 7 pm for one night only, tickets can be purchased at or and participating theater box offices.
In addition, Taff will release his debut praise and worship album, Believe, November 2 from Sweetwater Studios, a division of Sweetwater Sound, and with global distribution from The Fuel Music. His first new album in over seven years, the full-circle, 12-song project features new recordings of the hits for which Taff is best-loved, including his iconic “I Still Believe.” Produced by Phil Naish and Mark Hornsby, Believe features collaborations with Amy Grant and David Crowder.Hailed by Billboard magazine as “the single most electrifying voice in Christian music,” Russ Taff has garnered six GRAMMY® Awards and 18 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. Inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame an unprecedented three times—as a soloist, as well as a member of The Imperials and the Gaither Vocal Band—Taff is also a member of the Christian Music Hall of Fame and the Arkansas Walk of Fame.

Rising to prominence with The Imperials, trailblazers of the contemporary Christian music movement of the 1970s, Taff was the voice behind such quintessential hits as “Praise the Lord,” “Trumpet of Jesus” and “I’m Forgiven,” among many others. His genre-defying sound later endeared him to Southern Gospel audiences, and he spent nearly three years as a member of the world-renowned Gaither Vocal Band. Taff has recorded 11 solo albums to date, including industry benchmarks Medals (1985), Russ Taff (1987) and Under Their Influence (1991), and his classic singles include “We Will Stand,” “I’m Not Alone,” “Not Gonna Bow” and “Love Is Not A Thing.” From rock giants Kings of Leon to MercyMe’s Bart Millard and Newsboys’ Michael Tait, Taff’s influence is felt throughout the music world.

If fans are making plans to travel to Pigeon Forge for the first time, they should take note of this comment by Rick Brock of Mercy Rain: “2017 was my first Creekside appearance.  It was at the start of the day and artists and people were just starting to come into the booth and concert area. The gentlemen who was behind the curtain separating the two aisles was playing his guitar and singing a song to pass the time.  I started to join singing harmony with him with the curtain still closed. Soon I pulled back the curtain so that we could see each other and introduce ourselves. I had never really got to meet him before this time.

Mercy Rain

Mercy Rain

Truthfully, our harmony was sounding really good. We would ask each other, do you know this song or do you know that song? If he did, he would play it on his guitar and we would both start to sing. Later, we had other artists from other nearby booths come over and join in. We were so enjoying ourselves that we failed to notice that several people had stopped by our booth to listen. They were so enjoying that mini impromptu concert where we were just enjoying singing and fellowshipping with one another. That set the tone for me for Creekside and I look forward to this coming year. That is what makes Creekside family – with a little front porch singing.”

Sheila Blackwell says, “Looking back to attending the first year of Creekside (2012) , I was so impressed with everyone involved that I too wanted to help it be an ongoing and successful event.  I talked with Rob Patz and the next year I became a volunteer. Every year since, the event has grown. So has the need for volunteers, thus I have coordinated a team to help annually. Blessings abound at this event; groups and people come and go, and the singing gets better and better. It is a blessing to know that  people are getting saved during the services. That’s why we do what we do. Hope to see everyone again this year.”

Creekside is offering a VIP bracelet for only $25 for the week. This will provide entry into the preferred seating at each event, includes a Creekside gift bag each night, as well as other select surprise events. VIP bracelet can be ordered by calling Rob Patz at 360-933-0741.

Exodus “shares the truth” on NQC mainstage

Written by Staff on October 11, 2018 – 5:46 am -

Exodus on NQC mainstage

Exodus on NQC mainstage

What a great time Exodus had at the 2018 National Quartet Convention (NQC) this year. It’s a place to connect with friends, make new ones, and sit in heavenly places, as touching lyrics and beautiful melodies fill the soul.

Exodus on NQC mainstageThere’s definitely no place like it and for Exodus to be a part of such an extraordinary event is humbling, to say the least.
Exodus on NQC mainstage

Exodus on NQC mainstage

We had just stepped into a new era of our ministry, as we became an all female trio. We decided.. ‘ to sing in one of the showcases would be a good idea.’ Much to our surprise, Exodus was chosen to sing on main stage.

Exodus on NQC mainstageWe were so happy. We all need encouragement from time to time and this definitely encouraged us.
Exodus on NQC mainstageYes, the lights are grand, the stage is awesome, but all that fades away as you remember the pledge you made so long ago, to allow the Holy Spirit the space he requires to live and be seen through you.Exodus on NQC mainstageWe sang our newest radio release written by Susan Brady and Phil Cross, “Thats What Happened At The Cross.” May we never forget what happened there.

Exodus on NQC mainstage


Singing on the same stage, where all the greatest groups and singers have sung their heart out, year after year, with the hope of leaving a stamp of love on our hearts and a new spring in our step, gave us a sense of pride in knowing the message in which we carry brings hope to the hopeless and redemption to the lost.

Exodus on NQC mainstage

Exodus on NQC mainstage

What an honor to share these truths before so many people at one time.

Exodus on NQC mainstage

Exodus on NQC mainstage

We want to thank Shane Roark and Chapel Valley for sponsoring and managing the showcases each year, as well as Clark Beasley and all the folks who work so hard making NQC the greatest event for Southern Gospel music.

If you have never attended NQC I urge you to make plans to attend next year! You won’t regret it.

Nashville TENN — Ed Leonard, president of Daywind Records, and Jerry Salley, Creative and A&R Director for Billy Blue and Billy Jam Records, (imprints of Daywind), have announced the formation of a new publishing entity.

Billy Blue Publishing (BBP) will focus on all types of Bluegrass and Americana music; seeking to sign and represent the finest writers in the genres.

Nashville native, Joe Dan Cornett, will step into a new role leading Billy Blue Publishing.

Cornett currently works as Creative Director at Daywind Publishing, one of the most successful Gospel music publishing companies in existence, where his duties include song pitching and songwriter development. He is also experienced in the mainstream Country market. A graduate of Middle Tennessee State University, Joe Dan has also worked in large market tour management and in film and television for Broadcast Music, Inc., (BMI).

The young executive has a passion for serving songwriters and creatives.

“I couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to expand into the Bluegrass market with Billy Blue Publishing,” Cornett says. “My family is from the hills of Kentucky and I grew up listening to Bluegrass. I look forward to working with Jerry Salley and Billy Blue Records to help provide artists with spectacular songs. Acoustic music is full of amazingly talented people and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to work with them.”

Billy Blue Publishing joins the recently formed Billy Blue Records (Bluegrass) and Billy Jam Records (Americana) among the newest players in the growing world of acoustic music. Billy Blue Records previously announced a forthcoming album featuring the songs of Rick Lang; the signing of the Band of Kelleys; and the signing of Appalachian Road Show, the new musical endeavor launched by Barry Abernathy and Darrell Webb.

“There are so many great things on the horizon. The formation of Billy Blue Publishing with Joe Dan at the helm is another step toward the kind of creative excellence we’re striving for with Billy Blue and Billy Jam Records,” Jerry Salley says. “His fresh, forward thinking combined with his infectious enthusiasm and experience make him a natural leader for our latest endeavor. I am very excited about the future.”

Cornett has already begun considering writers for Billy Blue Publishing. He will attend World of Bluegrass in Raleigh with the Billy Blue Records team this week.
