RTN Theology #14 remembers as collaborative music project from 2012 birthed out of a North Carolina church community. Bob and Chris talk with producer Jeff Crawford about the making of Hymns from the Gathering Church at Arbor Ridge Studios. This record features old hymns reimagined by artists such as Phil Cook, Mandolin Orange, Skylar Gudasz, Seth Kaufman (Floating Action), H.C. McIntyre (Mount Moriah), Brett Harris, Ryan Gustafson (The Dead Tongues), and more. Bob shares his personal ties to this music and Chris is simply content to be on a call “between two Crawfords.” Episode edited by Gary Fletcher.
