What a gift The Sout Project’s “Story” is to all of us … a beautifully-crafted presentation of original songs that enrich and inspire both in their content and form. Many voices, many cultures, many styles, many rhythms … all woven together in one richly textured musical fabric colored by good news of hope, peace, and joy.

Congrats with SOUT! I love the honesty and freshness … The arrangements are profound. Vine, Circle, Meditation with Mechtild is breathtaking – and the contemplative “In all Things” speaks direct to the heart!

I think it is absolutely fantastic … it really brings a multicultural presence to Emergence Christianity that is desperately needed.
