Let Freedom Ring

July 5, 2011

 

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

We want to take a moment and reflect with you on what God has done for our great country. He has given us a country that allows us the freedom to go anywhere and sing about our faith in the Lord Jesus. God’s hand has guided this country’s development. It began with the Puritans, whose pursuit was to live a godly life, to our founding fathers who established a nation on biblical principles that allowed freedom for its citizens like the world had never seen!!

However, we must remember that freedom has come with a very heavy price. The Puritans suffered tremendous hardships all the while staying faithful to the cause of Christ. Our forefathers risked persecution and death when they declared their independence. Our precious men and women in uniform, and soldiers of America’s past, have faithfully served this country in harms way and many have given their very lives. Remember, freedom is not free! One can hardly imagine anything more deserving of admiration and respect. Yet there is…

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).” Freedom has a price. Freedom from the deserved wrath of God, for our sins, cost God the loss of His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ. He took on our sin and endured the full force of Almighty God’s punishment for those sins. Our Savior gladly shed His life’s blood for our ultimate freedom.

We encourage you, this Fourth of July holiday, to thank God for this wonderful country He has given us.Thank Him for the men and women who are serving now and for those veterans who have served in the past. Most importantly, thank Him for the gift of His Precious Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. May American citizens continue to declare our Independence and, at the same time, declare our absolute DEpendence on God!!!

We’ll see you down the road….

Virgle Ashburn

May 4, 2011

We want to take a few moments to let everyone know that Ronnie’s and Michael’s grandfather, Virgle Ashburn, passed away on Wednesday evening, April 27th following deteriorating health for some time.

Many of you know how precious their grandfather was to Ronnie and Michael. Although he will be missed, he is now strong and healthy and is sitting at the feet of Jesus. He has been reunited with his wife, Ethelene, and they are rejoicing together. Ronnie, Michael, and Melissa have inherited a legacy of love and many memories they will cherish from their grandparents.

Mr. Ashburn is survived by two daughters, Priscilla Booth and Barbara Adams. He is also survived by three grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

A service honoring Virgle Ashburn’s life will be held on Wednesday, May 4, at Whitson Funeral Home in Cookeville, Tennessee. The family requests donations to Community Baptist Church Building Fund, 4918 Columbia Pike – Ste 7, Spring Hill, TN 37174 in lieu of flowers.

Thank you to those of you who have already called the office or sent emails. We love you and appreciate your prayers.

What’s Happening?

December 6, 2010

Is it just us or does time seem to be running on steroids? It doesn’t seem possible that it is really December 2010!! Many of you are heading into a very busy time of year. We hope that you all will take some time to enjoy the lights, the music, and the sentiment of this season being careful not to forget the real Reason for this Season – our Savior!!

We hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones and we want to thank all of you who emailed the office wishing us a Happy Thanksgiving. Mom is copying all of those emails and we will be reading them while we are on the road this weekend!

Read on to find out what we have been up to for the past few months…

Mexican Riviera Cruise

Several weeks ago we went on our first Mexican Riviera Cruise. What a wonderful time we had. The Mexican Riviera has some stunning scenery and Holland America Cruise Lines is top-notch.  The fellowship was so sweet on this cruise and we truly had a wonderful time. The concerts were fantastic too. The Liberty Quartet, Legacy Five, The Beene Family, the Herb Henry Family, Melissa Brady, Phil Cross, Taranda Greene, and, of course, “yours truly” were all artists performing during this fabulous time. It was truly an unforgettable week.

We have uploaded some pictures but we are having some issues with the software for our photo galleries. Be sure to check back here in a day or so and hopefully the issue will be resolved. There are some great pictures of the entire week.

Refresh & Renew 2010

We just returned from our first Refresh & Renew event and, folks, it was truly SPECIAL!!!  The Spirit of God was in our midst and it truly was a refreshing and spiritually renewing weekend.  Our special guest, Aaron Willburn and Dennis Swanberg brought laughter to our weekend and that, in itself, was truly a blessing.

Dr. Leman brought two powerful messages to us about what steals our joy and how to get it back and why God has us where we are. We woshipped together, we sang together, we prayed together and we laughed together.

Celebration 2010

For those of you who have wondered if Legacy Five would be hosting any more events at the Gaylord Opryland Resort since the flooding that took place there this past Spring, we have good news!! Celebration 2010 will be taking place at that very resort in a few weeks on December 31 and January 1, 2011. For more details on this great weekend click here.

If you are looking for a place to be on New Year’s Eve come spend it with all of us right here in Nashville.

2010 has been another landmark year for the group. Every ounce of credit and glory belong to our Heavenly Father. We sincerely appreciate your kindness to us and your prayers.  2011, HERE WE COME!!!

Because of Him,

Ronnie, Michael & Jim

What’s Happening??

May 22, 2010

Well, the Easter break is over and we have hit the ground running!! We just returned from several days in California and are preparing for a very busy summer.

We had a great time at the Great Western SG Fan Festival in Visalia, California. We had the opportunity to see many of our West Coast friends while we were there and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Antioch and Yuba City as well. You “west coasters” were very gracious and so expressive and we can’t wait until the June Declaration Tour!! If you live on the west coast or you are within driving distance we urge you to take a look at the schedule and make plans to be with us at a concert near you in June.

Even though we had a break for Easter, April was an extremely busy month. The 2010 SoGospel News Music Awards were handed out on April 13 and we were very honored to receive four awards that evening – Male Group of the Year, Progressive Song of the Year for What Salvation’s Done For Me, Best Live Performer, and Special Event Project of the Year (for Jubilee!). We appreciate the recognition this organization paid to our ministry and feel honored to be included in the company of so many deserving artists.

So many of you have written in to the office to check on our families after the recent flooding here in the Nashville area. Praise the Lord, none of our homes were damaged and we were all safe. We appreciate your concern and we thank you for your prayers.

We were able to be home with our families for Mother’s Day and we were also able to participate in the filming of a new Gaither video with many other Homecoming artists on May 11. We’ll give you more details about that video once they’re available.

There are many things we want to let you know about so without further adieu…

Refresh and Renew – Orlando, FL

We would love to have you join us for a great weekend in Orlando. We are planning three days of music, laughter and spiritual encouragement. All of this will take place in the beautiful Peabody Hotel. We’ve received some emails asking if this is the same Peabody Hotel with the famous ducks that do their daily walk down the red carpet and this would be the one!!!  This weekend is a great opportunity for you and your family to get away, enjoy all that the retreat will offer, the beautiful Florida weather and a luxurious hotel for an affordable price.  The Peabody Hotel sits in the midst of many attractions, restaurants, shopping, golf and other entertainment.  The hotel has agreed to offer discounted rates for before and after the retreat so consider making an entire vacation out of your trip. Aaron Wilburn will be joining us on Friday night and Dennis Swanberg will be with us on Saturday night. We’ll also have some time of worship in morning chapel services Saturday and Sunday mornings. This weekend will be our opportunity to spend time with you, express our appreciation for you and just have some quality “family” time with all of you . We really hope you’ll do whatever you can to be with us for the weekend. We’d love to see you there.

A FEW THINGS TO NOTE WHEN MAKING YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS:

We know that this event falls close to Thanksgiving so be sure to book your airline reservations early to avoid paying premium holiday prices for your airfare.

Also, many of you have called the office asking what time the event will be over. We are planning to end the event no later than 1:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

The hotel also offers a shuttle service to and from the airport but there is a charge for this service.

If you are interested in making your reservation online you may call Inspiration Cruises at (800) 247-1899.

Declaration Tour 2010

We’ve eased into the 2010 schedule but things are ramping up and life is about to get really busy. Last year we did our very first west coast tour and we had a great time meeting so many new people. Some of these dates are ticketed events and may have VIP receptions and reserved seating. We are told that ticket sales are up considerably for some dates so don’t delay in getting your tickets. Check out the tour dates on our website for more details.

That’s about it for now. We’ll keep you posted on the official arrival of the Declaration CD and we’ll be emailing you here and there throughout the summer to let you know of more exciting things on the horizon. Please continue to keep us in your prayers and know that we love you and thank God for your friendships, your love and your support!! We’ll be seein’ you down the road…

Because of Him,

The Booth Brothers
