The Galkin Evangelistic Team and friends have released their album for 2012. “By Faith” includes 16 songs all centered around the idea of those that leave comfort and familiarity and enter alien territory. The entire album and especially the title track express the idea that saints past and present have often demonstrated their faith by executing plans based on “things hoped for” and “the evidence of things not seen.” It’s easy to walk where we can see the path; not so much when the path is invisible.
This new album is a departure from what is usually expected from the Galkin team. The Galkins along with three other families are going to Salt Lake City, Utah to plant a church later this year. The Kopps, Countermans, and Albrights have all felt God’s calling to start a gospel work there in the midst of not only Mormonism but skepticism and agnosticism as well. Since they are all going as a team, the team joined up in Indianapolis to record several of the tracks together. Look for those tracks at the end of the album. (more…)
