Thank you for visiting my podcast page. As time goes on it's possible there may be multiple podcasts, but for now there is just one.
If you are experience with podcasts, you've read enough of this page already. :-) If you are not experienced with podcasts I suggest reading about it on some web sites. I may provide some links in the side bar of this page in the future. In the mean time...
I have used a number of programs to subscribe to podcasts over the years, and each program has various strengths and weaknesses. In my opinion, the application I find the most helpful in finding, subscribing to, and so forth is Apple's FREE iTunes. I highly recommend it.
If you click this link and if you have iTunes on your computer, it should open up and show you this podcast in that section of iTunes.
I am using the MPEG4 file format for these podcasts. The MPEG4 format (for both video and audio) is a publicly documented standard and many companies have written compatible software that can let you do all sorts of things with the related file formats (mp4, m4v, m4p, m4a, and so forth).
The standard is not owned by any one company. Everyone benefits from having openly documented standards.
This is part of why I use and recommend installing the iTunes software to play back these files if you try to watch and listen to them, but can't.
There are many other reasons I chose MPEG4, but I'm not going to write them all now. :-)

From the iTunes feed:
A rough cut from a piece I started not too long ago. Even though it's very early in the development process, it doesn't sound too bad. The text is written by me, based on various interpretations from David's Psalms.
Even though the "song" is very short, this is an excerpt, making it even shorter. :-)
There are many references to a variation on the title phrase in the Old and New Testaments. How many can you find? :-)
Just last night I thought up two more lines, which effectively doubled the length of the song! (Although I have yet to record it.)
From the iTunes feed:
This clip from "Cares of the World" is about 2 minutes long, encompassing the last verse and the ending harmonies.
For the most part it can be comforting to think of this song as sung by Yeshua to his believers, friends, servants... you!
"Cares of the World" is a song about friendship.
It's a song about how love lifts up, not knocks down. The cares of this world knock us around, down, and choke us with their increasingly thorny problems.
Yeshua (Jesus) points this out in a parable, and sayings, found in these passages:
[Luke 8:1-18, emphasis on 14, 15]
[Luke 21:28-38, emphasis on 34]
[Mark 4:1-32 emphasis 14-20]
[Matthew 13:1-23 emphasis 18-23]
We need to see where our seed is being sewn, sew it in fertile soil, and some other things you can read about in the above references. :-)
I started writing this song in 2005, it came together fairly quickly, and is mostly done.
Tech - This version was created for DV with "title safe" margins, so the text may appear a bit cramped, it is scaled down to 320x240 px. You may also notice another web site I run stamped across the video, CompuDrew.com. No need to alert me about copyright violations, I give myself permission to use this clip in this way. :-)
Don't Let The Cares Of The World Weigh You Down!
