About the Red Cross:
The American Red Cross is not a government agency. All Red Cross disaster assistance is free thanks to its many volunteers. The ratio of volunteer Red Cross workers to paid staff is almost 36 to one.

The music of Dawson Cowals has been described as "Dave Matthews sings Rich Mullins songs accompanied by James Taylor on the guitar." (https://www.tradebit.com) It is this combination of driving acoustic rhythms, falsetto vocals, and poignant lyrics that have caught and held the ears of his many listeners. As both a singer/songwriter and worship leader for several years, Dawson has written many praise songs that are at last available on this collection.
On "Inhabit Our Praises" he brings together 15 of his original worship songs that were written during his years as a worship leader at Oregon State University. These songs were sung in crowded living room Bible studies and in churches across Oregon when he would travel to share. Originally released on September 5, 2000, this rerelease has a different track order, one new song ("Restore My Soul"), and a new artwork package.
If you are looking for some great new scripture-based worship then check out this CD. Many of the songs come straight from the NIV version of Psalms or other passages with only some slight poetic-license thrown in for a more modern turn of phrase. Featuring Dawson''s signature guitar style and carefully crafted lyrics, these songs will bring you before the throne in worship and bring peace to your soul. From the upbeat, Dave Matthews sax-filled sound of "I Give My Life" to the mellow ballad "Blameless Heart" reminiscent of Caedmon''s Call, to the simple guitar trio on "Come Unto Me", this CD is sure to stir your heart with praise.
The theme and inspiration for this CD comes from the passage in Colossians 3:16-17 that reminds us "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
Dawson has been writing music for over 14 years and has a total of 10 full-length CDs containing over 130 unique songs between them. Some of the more recent recordings include his modern Christmas collection featuring the title track, "Born Is the King"; his full-length studio recording "Don''t Look Back" with songs like "Green", "Seraph''s Wings", and "Without You"; an all-acoustic collection of new and older favorites called "Unplugged" with songs such as "I''m Not That Strong" and "Sticks & Stones"; to "More In Store" which features some old, remastered classics, some previously unreleased songs and a few tracks from a live concert!
Dawson has played in small coffee shop venues and for outdoor amphitheatre crowds of thousands, but wherever you hear him you will come away feeling that you had the chance to share an incredible evening of acoustic storytelling with a from-the-heart performer.
