Every time Ia€™ve seen him live over the years, Ia€™ve chided myself for not having remembered to grab him for a feature article.
Brooks has been living in England with his wife, Jo, who is British, for four years at this point. Speaking with Brooks from a€?across the pond,a€? I found someone who is so acclimated in his new life that he speaks in a clipped, slightly British, almost Cockney manner, sort of like the way a Northern visitor to the U.S.
Brooks appeared a couple of times at The Fast Folk Cafe in the mid-a€™90s, where I was a volunteer manager. In addition to New Everything, which he mailed to me, I remembered owning How the Night Time Sings (1991) and Knife Edge (1996). Red Guitar Plays Blue is a self-issued collection of vintage recordings of songs written during 1986 and 1987. One instrumental track on How the Night Time Sings, a€?Look What the Cat Dragged In,a€? is itself cat-like, aurally walking the top edge of a fence and nimbly leaping from one tiny surface to another. The opening instrumental track of Live Solo, a€?Chasing The Groove,a€? is typical Brooks a€” a bouncing fret-skipper that easily beguiles the audience who will now hang on every note and syllable of the eveninga€™s performance. His new CD, appropriately named New Everything, is at times a good-time, jump-out-of-your-seat, get-up-and-dance guitar clinic.
When he lights into a€?Deep River Blues,a€? the classic made famous by Doc Watson, my body does a giddy flinch of joy.
The title track is a skewed version of the old country song a€?Flowers on the Wall,a€? by The Statler Brothers (a€?countina€™ flowers on the wall, that dona€™t bother me at alla€?).
This batch of stories reflects his expressed career goal to continue following the primal urge to express reactions to life events with sung poetry and a guitar riff. Brooks is quick to remark how welcome and appreciative his British audiences have been and continue to be.

Sometime a problem will not yield quickly so you need to go to your quiet place and argue getting rid of the a€?he saida€?, a€?she saida€?, a€?I should of saida€? out of your thinking.
Mortal mind, the liar is always going to want to throw a kink into what ever you are doing. It doesna€™t mean to see mortal man and woman as sinful or evil because of the story of Adam and Eve. Christ Jesus says in Luke, a€?The Kingdom of God is within you.a€? Christian Science explains this Kingdom.
This story is about how God welcomes us home with love when we have changed our thinking - found that the mortal way is not Goda€™s way. Wednesday, February 22Dana Bahr, a€?Whata€™s New in the Universe?a€? Dana is a high school science teacher, amateur astronomer, and BUUF member. The BUUF meeting on April 11 will be BUUF member Erin Walsh speaking about the History of UU Music.
Prairie Star District annual conference will be April 13 a€“ 15 in Bloomington, MN (see article in this newsletter). At the beginning of our December 14 meeting, Richard Dean asked each of us what wea€™re reading now. Richard Dean has been reading a non-fiction book, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, by Rebecca Sklout. Lena from Rivers of Hope then spoke about the services they provide for people who live in Wright and Sherburne Counties.
Leslie Mills is a third generation Unitarian Universalist who was raised in the Milwaukee area. Wednesday, March 7 is Purim, a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman (see the bible, Book of Esther).
On February 9, the group will look at how to weigh the value of conflicting static social patterns of good from an intellectual perspective.
UUsOut4ME is implementing a campaign to raise awareness in the UU community about the proposed amendment to our state constitution that would define marriage as between one man and one woman. As our country is engaged in war on the other side of the globe, every one of us is affected by the enormous emotional and financial burden of sending our young people into battle. In addition to examining this profoundly moving theme, you can benefit from workshops designed to strengthen your congregation, deepen your social justice work, and enrich you on a personal level. The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee is asking us to focus on how UUSC upholds the inherent worth and dignity of every person through their Environmental Justice Program, specifically through protecting the human right to water. Cynthia Barnett argues that the best solution is also the simplest and least expensive: a water ethic for America. Youa€™d need to know a lot of those ways if you were to count the places Brooks Williams has been referred to in that manner. If you watch a YouTube video like his version of a€?Weeping Willow Blues,a€? recorded at Uncle Calvina€™s in Dallas, the guitar seems like ita€™s been grafted onto him.
With the release of his new CD, appropriately named New Everything, wea€™re finally getting that corrected.
Southern states might return northward, dragging the expression a€?ya€™alla€? across the Mason-Dixon Line.
Whenever they got to a new town, the first thing shea€™d do was call a music school or store and ask who taught violin. He noticed that not many other boys his age were inside on sunny summer days playing violin. Rather than accept an offer from Berkelee School of Music, he attended a liberal arts school for a couple of years.
A check of our CD shelves uncovered a forgotten treasure trove: Red Guitar Plays Blue (1994), Nectar (2003) and Live Solo (2004).


It carried me back in time to when Brooksa€™ jackhammer-steady rhythm and pristine clear picking were a new revelation. Knife Edge illustrates Brooksa€™ love for Ireland in the rollicking instrumental track a€?Belfast Bluesa€? and the stomping slide romp a€?Rotterdam Bar,a€? which recounts the time he played Belfasta€™s legendary Rotterdam Bar alone on stage to an empty room after it had been closed down (a favorite playera€™s venue during the a€™90s, an Internet search as to whether it was saved from demolition is inconclusive). He plays fingerstyle on a resonator guitar while Martin Simpson, British guitar monster, adds background slide licks on a second resonator. Maverick is an Americana festival held every year in eastern England during the 4th of July weekend.
Eddy is talking about Goda€™s love here, the a€?agapea€? love that is spoken of by Christ Jesus. Eddy gave two of the early workers who were also her students, Victoria and Laura Sargent the following on how to heal. Eddy says this, a€?The procuring cause and foundation of all sickness is fear, ignorance, or sin.
Eddya€™s argument against fear and sickness from a€?The Great Revelationa€? in her autobiography Retrospection and Introspection. Eddy says this about fear, a€?Christian Science declares that sickness is a belief, a latent fear, made manifest on the body in different forms of fear or disease. For example you may argue like this: Because I am the image and likeness of God I will not manifest fear in the way of disease or lack of anything.
We know the laws of the Kingdom are the Ten Commandments and ita€™s up to us to live these laws. Eddy says this,A  a€?The procuring cause and foundation of all sickness is fear, ignorance, or sin.
If further proof of his prowess is needed, in another video, apparently from the same set, he laughingly tosses off a guitar medley of the most famous rock and folk riffs.
They hit it off immediately, but didna€™t see each other for another year, so their relationship developed a€?at a slow burn,a€? he said. He would get tired of one line of work or things would get slow and hea€™d switch back and forth. Bored with playing classical pieces and with the instrument itself, he wandered off and came across an older boy, a teenager, playing guitar. It kept him away from the drinking and racial conflicts that pervaded the lives of many Southern teenagers. He also bought a book of the greatest hits of the a€™70s a€” Beatles, Carly Simon, CSNY, Arlo Guthrie a€” and it showed him how to play chords. He left for another couple of years, but went back and re-enrolled, this time at Salem State College in Massachusetts and graduated with a B.A in English. I played anywhere that would have me a€” cafes, bars, open mics a€” and lots of restaurants. The title track invites the female listener to walk with him on the insecure a€?knife edgea€? of a relationship.

What is in your thinking like the commercial that says a€?Whata€™s in your wallet?a€? Is your thinking focused on the economy, the political situation, family relations, health, food or your business. A lie can be discouragement, joblessness, deceit, bitterness, sin, disease, hunger, jealousy, and the list can go on.
This fear is formed unconsciously in the silent thought, as when you awaken from sleep and feel ill, experiencing the effect of a fear whose existence you do not realize; but if you fall asleep, actually conscious of the truth of Christian Science, a€” namely, that man's harmony is no more to be invaded than the rhythm of the universe, a€” you cannot awake in fear or suffering of any sort. The a€?Bea€? attitudes are in Matthew which is part of the Sermon on the Mount is what our attitude should be.
Let us feel the divine energy of Spirit, bringing us into Renewed selfhood newness of life and recognizing no mortal nor material power as able to destroy. See the definition of a€?mana€? on page 475 of Science and Health a€?What is mana€?.A  Hold to this when you seem to be looking at an evil person or anything that seems to be evil. The violin practice and concerts brought him in contact with other youngsters, so early on, it was fun. He thought, a€?I want to do that.a€? Brooks returned the next day and asked the boy to show him how to play.
During this time, in the late a€™80s, stalwarts such as Vance Gilbert, Ellis Paul, Jonatha Brooke and Catie Curtis were beginning to make their mark. In addition to all the guitar pyrotechnics, I came away with the indelible image of Brooks cleverly easing forward and using the mic stand as a slide at the finish of one song. This argument cannot be reversed because God is the only power, the only law giver of my life.
Brooksa€™ first time playing guitar in front of an audience was in a concert on his last day of high school. When I finally got it together enough to make a little money from playing a€” and I decided thata€™s what I wanted to do a€” I was playing five to six nights a week in the little clubs, bars and coffeehouse of New York and New England. Red Guitar Plays Blue is out of print and I dona€™t see it in the iTunes store, so I feel pretty lucky to have it. On the drive home, a full moon hung in the sky and awoke reminiscences of people who werena€™t there that day, specifically Michael, who had passed away. When I finally got it together enough to make a little money from playing a€” and I decided thata€™s what I wanted to do a€” I was playing five to sixA  nights a week in the little clubs, bars and coffeehouse of New York and New England.
Feeding a habit I started at the Cafe, I bought CDs from Brooks and had him autograph them.
So thata€™s where we learn to say a€?yesa€? to God and a€?noa€? to lies that appear to be a part of our thinking.
He was really nervous, a€?shaking in my boots,a€? he said, but he loved the experience and was determined to do more of it.


The midweek gigs were in loud bars where I could barely even hear myself and I played for four hours without stopping.
Looking at the a€?Listeners Also Boughta€? thumbnails in the iTunes store below Brooksa€™ albums, one sees Kelly Joe Phelps, Taj Mahal, Susan Tedeschi and Muddy Waters.
He gave Brooks a fresh push back in the early 2000s, lining up gigs in numerous venues, when Brooks was struggling. Now some people think because they dona€™t get an instantaneous healing God doesna€™t want to heal them or maybe blame God for not answering the way they think God should answer.
While he immediately felt at home with the guitar, he kept that promise for four more years.
Intimate moments shared between a husband and wife occur in the bedroom.A Although the husband and wife love their children in nearly every other sphere of their lives, this isA one sphere that isna€™t available to anyone else.
His mother approvingly noticed that he was enthusiastic about guitar a€” the violin, not so much.
This false thinking can come to you from outside sources like the news, TV commercials, friends who like to influence - peer pressure, gangs, a spouse, human will, or government. As the image of God go back to your origin - God which is Truth, Life, Love, Mind, Soul, Principle, Spirit plus Goda€™s attributes. As the image of God go back to your origin - God which is Truth, Life, Love, Mind, Soul, Principle, SpiritA  plus Goda€™s attributes.
This does not literally mean you must pray in the bedroom any more than it means you must pray in a closet. Work with these synonyms and begin your list of Goda€™s attributes that are in Science and Health. The concept of a bedroom is only used to convey the idea of an isolated and solitary place where you can be alone with the Lord.A When we enter into a time of prayer, it should be done at a place and time when we are not interrupted so the Holy Spirit can speak to our hearts and we can bare our hearts to Him. Each of us should make it a daily priority to have this special time of communion with the Father through the Holy Spirit. It doesna€™t matter where you and I spend this private time with God; it just matters that we actually do it. He often prayed on a mountaintop or out in the wilderness, far fromA the hustle and bustle of the city.
There is nothing in the Bible that says the early morning hours areA more holy than other hours of the day, and nowhere does the Bible teach that praying on a mountaintopA is somehow better than other places.
Jesus chose those early morning hours because it was aA moment when He could find solitude and quietness with God. So if you really want to be with the Lord, you will find time for that as well.A Think about it. But with all the distractions of modern life we often find ourselves living on spiritual snack food instead of a healthy diet of God's Word. Here are seven suggestions that may help you have a better quiet time in a noisy world.A 1. If you want to have a more meaningful quiet time, view Bible reading and prayer as a daily dialog with God, a daily meeting.A 3.
DON'T FEEL GUILTYHave you ever heard someone confess, "I'm having trouble keeping a regular quiet time.
FIND A PLAN THAT FITS YOUMany people say, "I love to cook but I hate to decide what's for dinner." The same principle is true when it comes to a daily quiet time. There are manyA good Bible reading guides available from other publishers or your church denomination. Then you won't have to spend your quiet time in "menu planning" and you can experience "the joy of cooking."A 5.
Put into practice some of these ideas and soon you'll discover that those few quiet time minutes may become the most meaningful part of your day.A A So select a quiet place where you wona€™t be disturbed. Once you go to that place, shut the doorA to outside interference and to the voices that are constantly calling out for your attention.
Focus onA only one thing: this very intimate and private time with the Father.A This is so important that you shouldna€™t delay in acting on it!
The truth is, IA havena€™t made my prayer time a priority in my life; therefore, I havena€™t been consistent inA prayer.
So I am asking You to help me locate a time and place where I can be alone and uninterrupted with You.
I am faithful to pray, to fellowshipA with the Father, to bare my heart before Him, and to listen to what His Spirit has toA say to me.
What time of the day have you found to be best for you to really pray without being interrupted by other people or business?A 2. When you do spend time in prayer, what is the average amount of time you stay in the Presence of God? Can you honestly say you linger in His Presence, or do you have a a€?rush-in, rush-outa€? experience with the Lord?A 3. If you examine your prayer time, what do you find that you pray about more than anything else?
But with all the distractions of modern life we often find ourselves living on spiritual snack food instead of a healthy diet of God's Word. IT'S A MEETING, NOT A HABITPeople refer to the habit of daily Bible reading and prayer. Don't focus so much on the mechanics of the process that you miss the Person behind it.
