Can you believe it’s been a year since we released “Only Grace”? I still remember the first time we played it at church. We were still meeting at the Boys & Girls Club in Clifton, NJ. The first time I introduced the song was just on an acoustic guitar. No drums or bass or piano. If I remember correctly, it was my wife and I who sang it.

Can you believe "Only Grace" has already been out for 3 months? It seems like it's been so much longer! We've actually been playing and singing the song in our church for over a year. In that year, not only has the song grown and changed, but we as a church have grown and changed too.
