Family of God: Honor, Wisdom, Glory and Praise

Honor, Wisdom, Glory and Praise (FG-1001) was the first (and possibly the only) album of the Family of God Christian Community in Fort Worth, Texas. The community described itself as a “charismatic, ecumenical fellowship in Fort Worth, Texas. Our membership is ecumenical, though largely Catholic.” The album was produced in 1981.The music is very much in line with Catholic charismatic music of the era, with the emphasis on acoustical guitars, light vocals and very light percussion. But, as the credits indicate, there is a variety of instrumentation to keep things interesting. The community drew broadly from its membership to produce this album. All of the compositions are original.
