    I just found out that Dana Key has semi-retired from performing to become pastor of TLC (The Love of Christ ministries), a church planted by Germantown Baptist in Germantown, Tn.

    Dana had such a great ministry in his music and I was always impressed with his Biblical literacy and thoughtfulness.

    For those who don't know, he got his start in Christian music, along with Eddie DeGarmo, when his dad bought a flatbed trailer and customized it by building a retractable stage. They would drive throughout the South and midwest setting up in parking lots and preaching the Gospel.

    In addition to being a great preacher, he was (and may still be) one of the best guitarists in Christian music and I'm glad to see that he's continuing on in ministry.

    I just thought this was cool and wanted to share it with you since he probably has fans here who wondered what he was up to these days.

    Mike

    "Dear Mr. Clapton", by Dana Key

    (written for Eric Clapton on the death of his son, Connor)

    Dear Mr. Clapton,
    I have learned of your loss.
    Tears in heaven,
    It’s a beautiful song.

    I know your bleeding
    Won’t cease with my words.
    They’re just a cool drink
    To help you along.

    Through Saturdays with no noise,
    Baseballs and untouched toys.
    They leave an empty feeling in your soul.

    He is in heaven’s care.
    There are no tears up there, cuz,
    Jesus loves children more than we will ever know.
    He loves those children more than we will ever know.

    Dear Mr. Clapton,
    You are not without hope.
    The door to heaven
    lies beyond the grave

    If you would only
    believe as a child,
    someday this pain
    will be washed away.

    Of, memories of holidays,
    That small angelic face.
    They leave an empty feeling in your soul.

    CHORUS

    Dear Mr. Clapton,
    I have learned of your loss.

    I always thought that song was called "Dear Mr Chapman", or "Dear Mr Clap Man"
