a nice feature on Lisa in yesterday’s DMN.
And here is
Lisa’s myspace page.

Special guests will include Bruce Balmer, Jeffrey Barnes, and J. Paul Slavens as they recreate the magic of this studio release. Lisa’s press release says: “the doors open at 7:00, show at 7:30, cover is $10. Dress up if the spirit moves you–be there regardless!”
Hard to believe, but I’ve known Lisa over a decade now, from our time in the new defunct Greenville Avenue Songwriter’s Group. We’ve also shared many a memorable moment at Kerrville. Her fellow Malvini, Beth Cahill plays on my CD (

But if you can, you should go.

The entries on this blog reflect that diversity of interests. His passion for social justice goes beyond mere words. He’s been arrested at the White House, defending immigrants and “The Dreamers,” and he’s officiated at same sex weddings in his churches, in defiance of what some believe is Methodist teaching. Eric is an avid blogger and published author, and 2017 recipient of the prestigeous Kuchling Humanitarian Award from Dallas’ Black Tie Dinner.

He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He’s a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named “best judge” by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County, and is currently the longest service district judge in that district. She was re-elected for a fourth term in 2018. They have the world’s best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy.
