Birtill and Baxter (Kruger) hanging out together.

A couple of weeks ago we dropped into a Partners in Harvest event in Hemel Hempstead, UK. We met loads of friends but in literally, the last five minutes we ran into Willie and Mandy, great friends from Brockton.  We share lots with them but recently I introduced them to C Baxter Kruger. Now they are hooked too. In our brief chat they asked if we had heard Godfrey Birtill's latest Album "The Wine is Alive". Willie dashed to the car and ran back and thrust a very well played CD into my hands.  His said to me, "You will love Track 3!"  I have been playing it ever since. It's excellent.  It's like Birtill and Baxter have been hanging out together and inspiring each other.

The whole album sings truth and lifts us above so much of our miserable pleading that we call Christian worship, begging God to show up as if he isn't with us already.   It is a mixture of styles and may not appeal to everyone but the words, oh the words are great.  The track that Mandy and Willie really liked is called "It's a wonderful dance!". This song is all about the dance-like relationship of love that exists in  the trinity which we are included in too because we are in Christ.  Here is video of just track 3.


Enjoy!  I did.

  1. Hi Trevor,
    It seems that more and more people are beginning to see the same thing as C. Baxter Kruger. John Crowder, has feasted on his writings a lot lately and is coming over to Switzerland in a few weeks. I asked to meet with him and talk about the direction he is taking. Father is shifting something in the Body of Christ. Very exciting!

  2. Hi Trevor,
    Just went to the Crowder meeting I talked about - it was sooner than I thought. It was not quite what I expected. Wrote you a personal note on 'Facebook'.

    Blessings in Father's Arms,
