Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Keith Green's Recording Archives to Be Released
Keith died 25 years ago...before I ever heard of him, in fact. Now Sparrow Records has gotten hold of his unpublished recordings and will be releasing them later this year. Part of me's all like, "Yeah, I'm sure it's real high-quality stuff, considering he didn't release it himself. They're just trying to capitalize off their dead recording artist, whether the music's worth hearing or not." And another part of me's all like, "Woo-hoo! New Keith tunes!" Will the cynic or the fan-girl win out? Stay tuned for further developments!
Also, as I've written before, Keith's theology leaves much to be desired, but the man was "bananas for Jesus," and I can't help but love him for that.

I don't agree with his theology either, but his zeal for Christ and desire to preach Christ crucified was absolutely unmatched (Arminian, yes, but definitely not heretical). His background in the secular pop biz really sharpened his performing skills; he had a scary onstage charisma that just captivated his audiences...and he was very humble and responsible about the "power of the performer" (having sung professionally myself for 25 years, I know exactly how that power can be used and misused)...and was not afraid to rebuke an audience if he felt that their applause was not God-honoring.
Songs like "Asleep In the Light" and "Pledge My Head to Heaven" (with harmonica solo by Bob Dylan, for goodness sakes!)...powerful, convicting...what a great musician and witness.-EB

"Grace By Which I Stand" is certainly an indication that he was growing out of the semi-Pelagianism that marked much of the Jesus movement. His heart for the unreached peoples is unmatched in most circles today, no matter what theological orientation prevails. And who today so lives out "Freely you have received; freely give."
