GLENN CROCKER-MUSICIAN WITH A MESSAGE

Glenn Crocker was directed by the Lord to write Christian songs hoping to reach them who could be touched by songs of freedom and hope.

GLENN CROCKER HISTORY

Glenn Crocker hails from a rich musical past. He was born into a Lutheran family who were farmers in central California. They were active in the community and his mother was the musical talent. Glenn knew from age 7 what he wanted to do. He wanted to sing, play the piano and write songs. That was almost 70 years ago and Glenn has now written over 200 songs. Until he retired, he was among other careers a studio musician
He formed his first band at 15 and at 18 he took his talents to Hollywood. Glenn was part of the rock and roll revolution in the 60’s and 70’s and worked with many musicians including Warren Zevon and David Marks of the Beach Boys. He was also exposed to a variety of musical styles including Country, Blues, Funk Jazz and Rock. And, you can hear them all in his music.
Glenn moved to the San Diego area in the early 80’s and founded a music school where he taught the advanced students for 12 years.
In 2005 after a divorce and a bout with cancer (now 16 years cancer free – praise the Lord) Glenn moved to Bend, Oregon. He didn’t know anyone there and after two months he felt alone, lost, and rudderless in the sea of life.

A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD

Then, Glenn, moving to Oregon and leaving behind the troubles of his life in southern California, he found living in a place where he knew no one. So, this writer asked Glenn, in the first Skype interview a number of questions. What follows is exactly how he responded.

Why are you doing this?

“I moved from southern California to central Oregon 16 years ago after a year of going through a divorce and cancer. I didn’t know anyone here and hadn’t played the piano or written a song for over 2 years. After being here for 2 months I felt very alone and lost. I wondered why I made the choice to move here.

One evening I just broke down and asked the Lord: What do you want me to do with the rest of my life? Within 5 minutes I was back on the piano and a new song was emerging. I thought, well, that makes sense. Why am I doing this? Because, the Lord directed me to do it. I sensed He was not done with me, yet.

And, now all these years and 44 songs later, He’s still giving me new music all the time. And, with today’s technology, it’s reaching people all over the world.”

INTERVIEW WITH GLENN AND ED

As, the interview progressed, this writer became so moved to do what could be done to help spread the word to others. Also, helping to elevate the human condition fit perfectly with the purpose Glenn is accomplishing in his music, inspired from our Father.

Glenn Crocker asked the Lord what He wanted him to do with his life. The Answer came within 5 minutes.

Therefore, the interview continued with this next set of questions. Glenn’s responses are represented with little grammatical editing for clarity of understanding.

Who do you hope to reach?

“There are several groups of people I hope to reach. 1) Christians whose faith may be wavering. 2) People who struggle with addiction. 3) Christians who feel they are alone and are fearful of the persecution they are or may be soon facing. 4) As friends share my music with their friends, I hope to help them come to the Lord.”

Do you believe there is a lack of faith?

“There is absolutely is a lack of faith today. Church attendance just went under 50% for the first time in this country. Just look at our society and compare it with Rome in Chapter 1 of Paul’s letter to the Romans. We have sunk to the lows that you read about, there.”

Do you see Christianity under attack?

“YES! There are many forms of persecution. I’m in contact with people in other countries where Christians lives are at risk. In one country, because of the pandemic, people are suffering because of the lack of food, water, and medicine. The people who practiced the predominate religion of the country were given help. But, the Christians were not. This is one form of persecution.

Here, in this country, Christian faith itself is under attack. In some countries just being a Christian can get you killed.

In this country, there’s censorship in the media and social networks. You have to be careful what you say because the cancel culture is real. If they don’t like what you’re saying they just cancel/block you.”

GOD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM SCHOOLS

To continue, “God is being taken out of schools and government, so, our children aren’t learning that this country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. My songs, ‘Don’t Let Freedom Down’ and ‘Walking In His Light’ both address this and tell Christians it’s time to stand up and be counted. The silent majority need to un-silence themselves, band together and say, ‘Enough is enough’.”

Now, for all to view: Glenn produces more of his songs with his saxophone friend, Andy.

This writer will add more songs to the article, as they manifest. Thank you for an eternal friendship, Glenn. Thank you most of all, Jesus Christ.

DON’T LET FREEDOM DOWN

The bass-guitarist, Joe Plass (from Kenny G) plays along with Glenn:

“Let’s work together to get people elected to all levels of government who share our same views and values. Violence is not the answer.”

WALKING IN HIS LIGHT

JESUS IS HIS NAME

A MOTHER’S DAY TRIBUTE TO ELAINE

AS THE INTERVIEW CONCLUDES

This author has been blessed, humbled, and honored to be an infinitesimally small part of such a hugely important and eternal part of life, which is our Lord and Jesus. Glenn and I have known each other in social media for a few years now. We both know that nothing happens by accident.

Ultimately, Glenn and this writer knew we were being directed, but we didn’t know when. God did and directed me, as well, to complete the connection.

Please, know that our Lord has plans for each and every one of you, too. All you have to do is ask for Jesus to come into your life. Ask Him, who is our advocate to our Father what is it that we need do and it will be revealed.

SUMMATION AND BLESSINGS TO EVERYONE

In all honesty, this writer started the article with the first sentence. Where would the next sentence come? Looked at it for two days. After asking the Lord to help make this right for Glenn, Christians and mankind who seek Him, this all happened in just 3 hours.

Humbling, it is to know Glenn Crocker is a friend for eternity.

Take notice and please heed the content of this article. Bible prophesy is real. Jesus of Nazareth was born on earth and He became the Son of Man. Mary and Joseph of Nazareth made it through the storm of a time where the concept of a virgin birth was not understood or considered possible. Jesus is returning, as He promised.

The time is coming. Nothing happens by accident. We are standing up to warn everyone of what is about to transpire. It is all part of elevating the human condition. This is not part of some conspiracy or cultish situation; it is part of the Truth.

Thank you all for viewing and reading. God Bless each and every one of you.

HOLLYWEED SIGN NYE 2017

The famed Hollywood sign was changed to Hollyweed in an apparent new years eve prank, shown here.

Hollywood becomes Hollyweed to usher in the 2017 new year over the Los Angeles, California, USA, basin. Rather brave pranksters have pulled off a late night New Years Eve alteration of the famed Hollywood sign overlooking parts of Los Angeles.

The famed Hollywood sign was changed to Hollyweed in an apparent new years eve prank, shown here.

Pictures were taken and local media has supplied these images along with network video that can be found online. Other images were photographed by quick-thinking individuals in the Los Angeles area. Discovered this morning as the sun rose over the Los Angeles basin the changed sign was noticed by many.

Frankly, to many California residents, this is quite hilarious. It should be noted the perpetrators must not have “over-smoked” to complete this task. This is an elevated and rather rocky area, so some astute initiative and planning was involved.

The following photos were taken courtesy of ABC, CBS and other photographers in the area. Thank you all for the quick thinking…must not have been stoned, in a manner of speaking:

2016 was the year of many ballet initiatives and one was placed to the voters to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. It passed and now lawmakers are scrambling to modify local ordinances to measure and protect the public from indiscriminate use of the drug in certain sensitive situations, especially in the area of motor transportation and automobile/truck use on public roads and highways.

Suffice it to say that, at least in Los Angeles and including the coming new year in 2017 events and activities to be labeled as interesting may be an understatement.

Thanks, again to all contributors of images utilized in this article.

Cheers…no, am not going to go any further with this. Happy New Year!
