Stories and Songs Tour with Sally Lloyd-Jones and Ellie Holcomb

Visit Clinton

An Evening of Stories and Songs featuring Sally Lloyd-Jones and Ellie Holcomb presented their intimate production at Parkway Baptist in Clinton Wednesday, April 19. 

The community gathered together for a time of joy and worship and celebration — tracing God’s hand in the stories He is telling in our lives, and in the Great Story of Redemption, and thanking God for His Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

For those unfamiliar with The Jesus Storybook Bible, it has quickly become the defacto mealtime and bedtime devotional for millennial parents struggling to explain (and understand for themselves) how to teach Jesus throughout the whole Bible.

The bestselling The Jesus Storybook Bible, written by Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrated by Jago has sold over 2 million copies and has been translated into over 30 languages around the globe.

Author Sally Lloyd-Jones read passages from the book and recounted stories of growing up in Africa and being used by God as a writer. All of it spoken in perfectly pleasing British English.

 

Ellie Holcomb

Ellie Holcomb is an American CCM-folk singer-songwriter raised in Nashville, Tennessee. Her father is noted music producer Brown Bannister, and she was a member of Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors whose frontman is her husband, Drew. They met while in school at the University of Tennessee together.

Since the release of her full-length solo debut, As Sure As the Sun, in 2014, singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb has been walking an unexpected path, one of suffering and loss but also peace and joy. She has come to the edge of the rushing river of confusion and experienced a God who made a way where there seemed to be no way.  

And it is from that place—of finding God in the dark and unexpected—that Holcomb wrote and recorded Red Sea Road (Full Heart Music), released Jan 27th, 2017. 


The staggered music, words, and visuals intertwined in an enchanting experience. Their on-stage friendship certainly came across as sincere, and the entire production was meticulously detailed and artistically intricate. I hope these two enjoyed their time in Clinton; it seemed like they did.
