Thanks so much for leading us in worship at Covenant Church on Sunday! Praise the Lord! Anne and I bought the ""Brother to Brother"" album and now I can't get the ""Suffer the Children"" track out of my head. It's so beautiful! I would like to send a copy of the song to my son Greg in Hollywood, where he works as a freelance videographer. With your permission, I would to explore him filming a pro-life video for the song. I might be crazy, but I feel strongly led to do this.
Serving Christ with you,
I remember when you guys, Albrecht, Roley and Moore, came to the Jesus Barn in East Peoria, IL......had a great time when you were there! I remember for some odd reason you guys, I think it was Albrecht, did a trick with matches....do you remember that? Anyway, if not, it was fun and I love the song SHOTGUN RIDER.
Thanks for replying back Scott. I have recently began to rededicate my life to God. I took my kids(whom are 5yrs old) to a new church in Georgetown KY called Grace Christian Church and it was amazing. God was definately speaking to me that day. The theme for the sermon was about being a father what roles that a father plays to provide the best care he can give to his children. Until that morning I had been somewhat lost in how can I be a better father for my kids. Sure enough I found some motivation and wisdom to help me grow into the roles I need.
I will stay in touch from time to time. Thanks again for your musical influence through Jesus Christ.
Mr. Roley, You spoke at a youth conference to a few college students at Jekyll Island in the summer of 1992 (I think.) I was one of those students and I was so moved by your family. I remember asking you about adoption and specifically about having a career and family. I remember you prayed with me and I remember that prayer so well. You prayed that I would be able to pursue my career so that I would then be able to adopt a lot of children. :) Well, I did pursue that career, which I am now practicing part time so I can be a mom to our 4 kids--one of which is adopted and we are waiting to see what God will do next. For all of these years, your talks, your prayer and your family have been a visible witness and inspiration to me. Thank you. In Christ, Jennifer Drake
Hello, I just wanted to stop by and say hi. In 1988, Scott Roley came to my hometown for a church dedication of the church I grew up in. I was about 15 at the time. I often talk about how cool it was to have Scott there and listen to him play the guitar and sing. He even came to my house and my parents cooked breakfast for him and his wife. It was just one of those moments in life that we look back on and cherish. Thank you for your influence Mr Roley. God Bless
You and Linda and your family are in my prayers and thoughts. Of course I miss seeing you so much but feel certain that I will run into you and Linda in Franklin. You and Linda are one of the main reasons why I attended CCC. You and Linda and your family truly ""walked the walk"" unlike I had ever seen a pastor do so, when you all adopted your younger children. You and Linda are awesome. I will always love you both. I just have one request Pastor Roley.... Should I EVER find someone to marry...(not likely, I'm 54 now although the infamous Bob has been calling again!!) anyway.. I really want you to officiate at my marriage, should I EVER marry. That would make me so happy!! Let the community know what your up to so we can join you through volunteering etc. Say ""hello"" to Linda for me.
I met you at Mitchel Road Pres in Greenville, SC.
You told a story about you and Michael Card being at place in Nashville and it had to do with seeing Jesus in the least of these.(it was an encounter with a young women while he was singing) Could you call me and tell me that story again. 864-421-7229

I am a CCC tech person. Just want you to know i love all you have done for us at CCC . You are a tender heart like me. I am anxious to see what God has in store for you and your new path. Hope your new hip is well.
And I hope to work with you and Linda in your new projects serving in our community?
Thinking of you both. Praying for healing and God's wisdom. Lean not on your own understanding but in all things give thanks and praise for our Lord and he will direct your path.
Hi, Scott -
In 1992, I saw you and Michael Card in concert, and you presented the song, ""Perfect Prayer,"" for which till today I could only remember the refrain, but it stuck with me in a good way ever since that night, with God bringing the refrain back to my mind in times when He knew I needed it. As a song leader, I even taught the refrain to my church, Grace Community Church of Seal Beach, and we've sung it a handful of times, with it being received well and blessing hundreds, and I made sure to give you credit on our lyric sheets and projections. I hope that gives you good encouragement!
I recently became a fan of Mike on Facebook, and I asked him about you and your song, and he, noting that you were his best friend, was happy to point me to you here. I'm pleased to now purchase the mp3 of your ""Brother To Brother"" album, and finally learn those verses! I really appreciate your having written that song, and I really appreciate the Lord for using it to bless and help me for so many years!
God bless you, your family, and your ministries!
I found it. See you and talk to you soon. Do you know how to get a hold of Larry Walker.
Love you brother.
This is Jill. We have some young friends who are moving to Nashville and could use some ""older"" Christian friends and a good church... I am sending them to you. Can you email me your email address, so that I can give that to them and get you all connected. He is a singer/songwriter (also tunes pianos) anyway... It would be great if you and Linda could welcome them to the Nashville community for us.
All our live, especially in Him
Jill and Lee
Would have been between 1985-89, at Ron's spiritual life retreat. I remember how genuine you were in discussions shared. Appreciated that authenticity. I reminded Mary D. of the memories last night...
Will pull Within My Reach Down soon. All time favorite...
Thanks for finding me... I look back on my time at SAU and realize how much my life has been shaped by being there. Let me know when we would have crossed paths? I'm hoping my music is on I Tunes soon. Your words are very encouraging, thanks for the lift! Richest blessings...
Was reminded of you today...after many years...you were a visitor at Spring Arbor College back in the day. Digging out my old tapes, if I can find them, to reflect on the powerful gentleness of your music. Great to find you here, and blessings on you and your family.
PS - On iTunes soon?
Pieter, the band also included James Isaac Elliott, Phil Elliott's brother, on mandolin and percussion... James went on to write many songs with Steven C. Chapman.
Scott, thanks. That would be great! It would also be great if there were some live recordings of the City Limits band with John and Bob. That must have been a great band! I noticed there was a typo in my e-mail address, so here it is again: petraspective (at) gmail.com.
Great to hear from you, I will look into getting the original demos of the four songs to you as soon as possible. John and Bob are still dear friends and I'm glad someone like you is at work rescuing the wonderful music they both made for the Kingdom...
I am looking to find where some songs that you've written with John Lawry have been recorded. My site features a full Petra discography and I recently found info on some songs John Lawry wrote with you, but I can't seem to track them down. Maybe you can help. These are the songs I'm looking for:
All Of Me - Scott Roley, John Lawry
Follow The Leader - Scott Roley, Linda Roley, John Lawry
Just Like You - John Lawry, Scott Roley
Who Are We Fighting For - George Cocchini, John Lawry, Scott Roley
It would be great if you could help me!
BTW I own Gently Flowing Feeling on vinyl, after Bob Hartman told me that he played guitar on it. I do really like the album. Great stuff!
I don't know if you want to go back to revisit the 80's, but do you remember Jack Crabtree, and YFC on Long Island, NY? I was playing drums with Bob Snyder and Eric Eaton and we ministered in music together. Anyway, I see that you, and your son are pastors in Franklin, TN? I think that is wonderful. Jack Crabtree is pastoring as well! My family, (wife, and 9yr old son), just recently moved to Illinois. Plugged into a good church, and waiting on God's direction here. Good to hear your voice in song again-just as good as I remember it. I have been blessed to have played with you, Kathy Triccoli, Margaret Becker, and many others that have stood in their faith through the years.
May God keep you in all that you do,
Merry Christmas, I am going to download the bother to brother cd. but what i am also looking for is the sheet music for guitar for the songs on the album. is this item also available for download or order. I would like to order both at the same time. Please respond
if I was any kind of friend I would've sent you a copy free of charge... but thanks for the support. I can't wait for the ""Thief"" to come out!
ordered your book today bro...proud of you! can't wait to read it! talk soon...
Shelly and Alfie,
time is flying by and I can't believe the memories that flood back from posts like yours, bless you and stay in touch.
It has been along time since we have seen you. Enjoyed the time we had while you were at the camp in North Carlina. ""Pinhook Valley"". Hope you remember us. You gave us alot of spiritual growth... Sure could use some of your input now... Proud of who you are, and what you have accomplished with your life. Sent you a little message on facebook. you can find my link there... God Bless. Shelly Landis
Scott, I've been sitting here going back in time as I listen to your music. I am glad to see you and Linda and the kids are well. I was going to post a comment on your facebook page, but couldn't find the link to do so. Oh well, this will have to do.
JC, thanks for the shirts, shoes, coats, pants and hats. I don't shop anymore because of your generosity. What readers don't know is the infamous Bonaroo advertising I did for your great company. I hope I didn't cost you any sales... I do love the Clarks!
THANKS FOR WEARING THE FITNESS SYSTEMS, INC. GEAR IN YOUR VIDEOS. DOES THAT MEAN I GET A CUT OF THE ROYALTIES!?! WOW, THE OLD MAN SONG REALLY TOUCHES ME BECAUSE I CAN SEE THE PAIN IN YOUR EYES TOO. THANKS FOR SHARING.
I LOVE YOU. --JOHNNY
Thanks for checking in. It is a real encouragement to be reminded of God's goodness over all these years. Bless you my brother...
Nice to know you're here. Your music really meant alot to me when I became a Christian back in 1978. Bye for now.
Thank you so much for the reminder of how God's grace works. His deep love for us spills out into love for others. I often forget that. I try to love on my own but that gets frustrating. Better to trust in Him. Great to hear from you have a grace filled summer.
yes, thank you for being willing to send the record to me. It was a limited pressing and as a result remained popular with AR&M fans. I am sad to tell you that Mike Albrecht passed away in 2002. We all miss him terribly. My home address is 959 Glass Street, Franklin, Tennessee, 37064. I will pay shipping if you need me to. Blessings...
I went to MSU with Mike and he gave me a white promo lp of Gently Flowing Feeling. I am getting rid of all my vinyl and thought he/you might want it. Let me know.
thanks for buying the cds, Aslan is rough, recorded on a four track in a Church. A&R was the foundation for AR&M featureing my brother Jeff Roley on drums and Ted Kallman on guitar both of OMWB fame. Take It To The People is the final trio record produced by Al Perkins. Hope you enjoy. Have a great New Year!
great to hear from you. I have been spending alot of time lately with Bill Deaton and we were just remembering the time we worked on your record. I am so glad you have continued your education and teaching, I'm sure you are wonderful at it. ""Where does your treasure lie"" is still a favorite.
Hi Scott and Family,
I've thought about contacting you for some time. Thought that I would use this vehicle to do so.
My best wishes for a great Christmas this year. I thought that I would also simply attach a note that I sent out this Christmas in an ecard.
It has been a fast year for me. I have for now returned to teaching Philosophy classes and am loving it. It seems to me like I never stopped.
My health has been fine and my two original cats are doing well too. I was given a young cat half-way through the year that my friend Linda rescued but he unfortunately died unexpectedly a few weeks ago, throwing some negativeness over the Season.
I continue to run the Baltimore Backgammon Club and my internet Backgammon teaching videos have surpassed 75,000 hits on the original site at http://www.monkeysee.com/play/11192-backgammon and who knows how many others on sites like YouTube that also carry them. They are helping many new players learn to play the game and I am glad to have been able to give something back to others through them.
My day, while it usually starts out teaching in Baltimore City, often ends up in the country where I help Linda take care of her horse chores. The change, while it involves real physical work, is a good break from academic work. She had some good shows in Virginia this past summer and has high hopes for them in the show jumping world.
An unexpected positive this year has been hooking up with my good friend from High School Carter Clews, who works for Americans for Limited Government. Through their organization I have been writing a weekly, nationally syndicated column mixing philosophy with politics. Many of my articles, written from a center-right political perspective, can be found at: http://libertyfeatures.com/?s=morawski
and this one as well:
I know that it may have been a hard year for some of you and I do not want to pretend that it has been an easy one for me. But I hope for a better year for all of us in 2010 and would appreciate hearing from all of you, even if it is just a few lines in an e-mail.
Merry Christmas from the Heart!
Vic Morawski, Jr.
Glad to see that you are working on race relations. I teach some of my philosophy courses at Coppin University, a predominantly black institution in Baltimore City. Much needs to be done in the African American community in the US---glad that you are part of the solution.
May the Lord continue to bless you in your ministry.
you are so kind and patient. We hope you enjoy the cds. Thanks for remembering me and the music. Have a wonderful new year, in Jesus, S.
thank you for the kind words we hope you enjoy the cd. I always liked ""Constantly"" it was autobiographical but nobody knew. Bless you, the poets die hard, Roley
Scott, I am so excited to see your music available on CD. FINALLY!!! Your song ""Constantly"" is one of my all time favorites, and I a song I still sing so many years later. Thank you. God bless you! And I will certainly be ordering CD's
thanks for your answer.can you give me the e-mail adress of Dan Wensley, what are the shipping costs to Germany and should i order in your shop?
i would like to have the first 5 cd's.
Thorsten, we will ship them anywhere mail goes. Just let Dan Wensley know when you make the order. I will also speak to him about it at Thanksgiving. I remember well my time in Hamburg. Thank you for asking about the cds and have a blessed time in the Lord this holiday.
is there any chance that you ship your cd's to europe (germany)?
(i only have paypal)
John, thank you for the help. Lord, bless Heavenly Grooves!
This is John from Heavenly Grooves. I wanted to apologize for not taking down the link for you Albrecht & Roley album sooner from my blog. I wasn't paying attention to the comments that I received so I was unaware that you were selling your albums. I still have it on the site but now with a link to where people can buy it. And in the next month or so I will post the review of the Aslan album and do the same by including a link for where people can purchase it. I appreciate your music.
Jeff, I don't have a track of B to B. There was one made twenty years ago, but I'm sure it would be impossible to find. Dan Wensley and I work together on special projects and I will see if he can get a piano or guitar track together for you. It would not be the production from the album, but rather the proper chord progression with a road map that you could easily follow and sing to. We will be praying for your brother, for the grace and peace of Jesus to flood his life, knowing that the Lord heals and worships over us!
Your song ""Brother to Brother"" has been inspirational for me and my brother Marc. He has gone through some tough times.
He has currently melanoma cancer and has been told that it is not treatable by conventional means (chemo). They've enrolled him into an test program with an experimental drug.
I was wondering of you have an accompaniment track to the ""Brother to Brother"" song so I could sing the song for him.
you are so kind to check in. The music, all eleven recordings, are now on cd and available through the site. I hope you enjoy them. Give my best to Uncle Dimpy.
I had a flash of your name in my head today, and I thought I would look you up....nice to see your still in the business...
I met you in the early 1980's at my uncle Dimpy's house in Pennsylvania, I dont know if you were friends of his family or how that all went...I think I was 14 years old, you gave me your cassette and I listened to it for a long time and really enjoyed it.....so just thought I would say Hi...let you know the music was really good...I will check on-line and maybe it is in cd form now....take care...Gretchen in Delaware :)
Thanks Dan for the OMWB link. It is an honor. God bless you guys!
Scott and Dan, I love the new site. I like the fact that I no longer am scrolling for stuff. Scott check out the video that I shot Sunday night after the Andover Reunion. And may this be my first unabashed appeal to add the OldManWorshipBand website to your links. Hopefully, I am more successful than Chicago's appeal to the Olympic Committee.
