Tom Wuest is a musician and subsistence farmer who writes prayerful songs for the church that are rooted in the biblical narrative and seek to broaden the vision of the Kingdom of God. His new album, Burn this as a Light, collects twelve songs of hope born out of particular stories of sorrow and longing. Tom has trained at Regent College in Vancouver. Four of Tom’s songs were included in the songbook in Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals (2010), for which Jonathan has shared authorship. He lives alongside Brush Creek in the lush river hills of Appalachian Ohio with his wife, Karen, and his sons, Isaiah and Arbutus.
