A rock band's tours and a spiritual journey

There is often plenty of fanfare when a rock musician decides to go on a spiritual search. But people don't always hear about a more modest approach to spiritual questions or about a musician's quiet effort to help others through prayer. That's why we felt this interview might be of special interest to our readers.

For nine years Keith Wommack, along with his brother, Kevin, wrote music for, played with, and managed the Wommack Brothers Band. They were successful enough to have tours both in the United States and Europe. We first learned of Keith when he sent us an article describing some of the lessons he had learned through his study of Christian Science. His article was packed with a number of treasured spiritual insights he had collected over the years from the Christian Science Sentinel and The Christian Science Journal. When he mentioned he had also been in a rock band, we decided to ask him to talk further with us about the band and his spiritual journey.

For many years, after high school, I performed in a rock band that traveled to a number of cities primarily in the United States. Since the band performed at night, during the day in every city we went to, I would find a quiet place where I could study and pray to gain more spiritual insight and to learn how to heal as Christ Jesus healed. In most cities that place was the Christian Science Reading Room.
