The Westmont Fire of 1964 had a profound effect on me. I wrote “Morning by Morning” 30 years after leaving Westmont … but the song we sang at Chapel during that fire was never far from my mind. Life has continued to take many unexpected turns since I wrote this piece in 1996. Some have been wonderful and some very challenging.
When my daughter started on her path to recovery, we talked about writing a book together that we would call Pillar of Fire: A Journey through Teenage Addiction. That book is still just a collection of letters and stories – but the image of the pillar of fire by night and the manna in the morning is what always comes to mind when I think of “Morning By Morning.”
