What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
I'm writing a song to go with God's promise to Abram / Abraham in Genesis 15 and Genesis 22.
Here are some words:
"Can you count the stars in the sky?
Can you count the sand by the sea?
There's so much sand
and so many stars
that's how your offspring will be!"
And Abram believed God
for what he could not see
and God said faith is what you need
to be counted right with me!

There are more words to come - but you'll have to wait a little while. We're trying it out on Sunday at church.
I've just been alerted to a problem with the Guitar chords in "Good Friday".
In bars 6 & 8 ("Good Friday means ... Good Friday 'cause") it reads
F#m(Em) Bm(Am) A(G) Bm(Am), but it should read:
F#m(Em) C#m(Bm) B(A) C#m(Bm)
In practice, it's easier just to play F#m(Em) for the whole bar.
I've updated the sheet music files everywhere on the site with the correct chords. Sorry if it has caused you any problems.

An early Christmas present for you: a simple Nativity Play for an all-age service or school event at Christmas time!
There are four scenes, with a script adapted from the Bible text of Luke and Matthew's Gospels. The cast is fairly straightforward, and the acting children only have small amounts to say. One or more Narrators keeps it all going - and that can be an older child / children or an adult.
The scenes are glued together with songs from Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes.
