If you're ready I'll tell it now - the story of today. Alley went down to the river's edge knelt down right there you know came right into focus said Jesus can I go up where the angels know oh  don’t leave me here below take me into the sky Alley they say looked into the big sky she's not there today no why's nobody know why she lived by the mountain she lived on the mountain she lived in a straight line straight into the sky and into the sun they say there's a door and you can just walk right through that you'll know when you're ready Alley knew she was ready and she never looked quite so beautiful as she did leaving leaving today today Allison's leaving today if you're ready I'll tell it now the story of today. Allison beyond the clouds Allison beyond the light Allison begins to fly looks up at creation you see the story goes on even after the love comes even after the light comes even after the light comes Allison began to see today while the world stood still by the lake on the 5 o'clock news well they're saying that the sun won't shine tomorrow the records stores are closed and the church doors have swung wide open why’s no one coming in they're at Allison Lake and they're burning down the bridges they think it's too late so they're carrying out the wood at Allison Lake they're manning all the watch towers Alley flies high above Allison shines Allison angel Alley's so high Alley's so high Allison shine shine shine shine shines at Allison Lake there are some who just started believing the story goes on and the truth now you can’t hide just look in your heart there's a door to the one that saves you somehow. It's easy to find don't take too long I will meet you by the back door it's easy to find don't take too long I will meet you by the back door yeah yeah before the morning becomes the evening right there there your thoughts and life begin straight line’s growing thin there's never gonna be a day that's better than today so when you walk out on the other side look up and see the light angels over manhattan when you walk out on the other side look up and see the light when you open up the big door yeah look see the light when you open up the door see the light. From the standpoint that it’s gonna rain or it isn’t it gonna rain but today people may still be interested in whether or not it rains but a lot more people are more interested in  who’s causing it to rain. Found him on the road to my surprise it was raining and the air was warm then he walked right out from the light he asked me where I’m going now everywhere I see the signs and forever starts today forever starts today there's a time when love it finds you and you're on your way to forever there's a mystery in the vine there's a magic in your heart there's a light up in the sky there's a place where we can start there's a time when love she finds you there's a light now shining within you we're on our way to somewhere can't you see forever starts today and forever starts today there's a light up there that you must see to be on your way forever some will come and some will go but you just stay right on that big love train we all can know we all can shine we all can shine shine shine there you'll find a peace of mind that's more than everything they tried to explain I'll be shining forever I know I'll be shining forever I know I know I know forever starts today forever starts today forever starts today forever starts today we are on our way to God's own light. Wake up wake up now Time slows down time slows down seek and you will find ask and you will know just let the door be opened let the kingdom come.

FAMILY - The new album from Brian Hinson / Story of Today is a gift back to community.

"Two of the most powerful forces in the universe are love and gratitude. Out of a deep and tangled brook, Brian Hinson has emerged, carrying another 'Story of Today' project into the light, a CD full of new recordings inspired by his love for the songs and gratitude to the songwriters who give voice to our common struggles. In ‘Family’, along with original compositions, Brian has added new and different beauty to stories and journeys that will be familiar to listeners of Jon Foreman, Andy Gullahorn, Jill Phillips and other artists (including Brian himself), whose creations explore our spirituality and the hard road through life that God can help us navigate. These songs, songwriters, and the musicians, along with a multitude of behind-the-sound supporters, all make up Story of Today's 'Family'.

Brian has spent the last 13 years sharing much of his time and talent with Northstar Community, a small, Richmond area ‘recovery church’ filled with huge, giving hearts. The folks at Northstar have repaid Brian with the kind of encouragement an artist and musician can only dream of. This encouragement has made the work of creating “Family” possible. The new Album is a gift back to the kind people who have made it possible."   - Steve Wilson

Thank you to all the players and singers who helped make this CD a reality - Brian Hinson, Chris Lucas, Ron Sada, Madison Hinson, Robert Lynch, Scott McBean, Steve Wilson, Jon Mills, Bruce Crump, Mark Holt, Kathryn Orlosky, Emily Wilson, Gabi Easter, Mike Johnson, Todd Sontag, Zoe Sontag, Mike Beachy, Mark Schultz, Alex Dompe, Ria Khandpur, Lori Hinson, Karen Gregory, Charlie Fink, Nancy, Jaden and Kyle Crump.
