I recently read ‘God of Surprises’ by this delightfully peaceful and thoughtful Jesuit priest, Gerard Hughes. By all account Christians right across denominations have been helped by this book. What struck me though, and has provoked further thought, was a particular formulation he devised (or he may have got it from someone else, I forget) … More Gerard Hughes was onto something
I’ll let Instagram say it . . . (press play) View this post on Instagram I’m releasing a Christmas single! Part of the forthcoming album ‘Spring Rain’, I’m glad I’ll be able to share this seasonally-appropriate song soon! 😊 #newmusic A post shared by Ben Trigg Music (@bentriggmusic) on Nov 20, 2018 at 9:25am PST … More A Child Is Born – Christmas single coming soon
As you may have picked up, I’ve been working on an album. Spring Rain has been through writing, arranging, recording, editing and, just last week, mixing – and I’ve reached the stage where I’m just putting the final touches on the mixes before sending it off to the mastering engineer. Also in the works is artwork … More Quick album update
I’m excited to be able to share another song video to showcase some of what’s coming on the album I’m currently working on. This one’s called ‘Rejoice My Soul’ and is taken straight from Philippians 4. As I say in the video below, I love writing songs straight from Scripture as it makes for good … More New Song taster – ‘Rejoice My Soul’
Here’s a little taster of what’s coming up on the new album I’m making (which you can support right now through Kickstarter – until 21 September 2018). I enjoyed writing this song and filming the video – I hope you enjoy watching it!
I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign! Until 21 September, you have the opportunity to help me reach a funding goal of £2,500 to produce an album of fresh songs handcrafted for personal and corporate worship. If the funding goal isn’t reached, however, the hard work I’ve already been putting into writing and recording the songs will … More Help make my new album happen!
Justin Brierley has a lot to answer for. He can’t just wheel out one video with an exciting guest and then be done with it. That would only distract me for an hour or so, then I could go back to everything else I’m supposed to be doing. Instead, he’s launched a whole series called … More Tom Holland meets Tom Wright
While I’m currently reading 12 Rules for Life by the internet’s current favourite controversial intellectual, Jordan B. Peterson, I thought I’d share my (perhaps rather less weighty) 6 rules for life: Only drink coffee between the hours of 9am and 1pm. Tea may be drunk between 6am and 9am, and again between 1pm and 6pm. Colds are … More My 6 rules for life
As I write, the skies are beginning to rumble. May is drawing to a close, and Summer is breaking upon us with thundery conditions expected over the next few days. But you didn’t come here for a weather report – unless you’re interested in more than just what the meteorologists have to say. In other … More Spring Rain
Scraping in by a mere three hours, I just finished reading my tenth book of 2017, crawling over the double-figures marker exhausted, bug-eyed and ready for bed. It’s been a crazy year and, apart from anything else, being a father seems an entirely reasonable excuse for letting my reading get on the back burner. Still, … More The 10 books I read in 2017
