In the winter of 2000, we returned to the studio with Monroe Jones to make a record called Offerings. Offerings was recorded in about a week in the same studio we had recorded Time called Southern Tracks.
We wanted to make a record that captured the power of the worshipful aspects of our concerts. Also, we wanted to make a worship record with original, unique material. We fully expected the record to sell half of what a normal Third Day record would.
After making the record, we set out on tour with Jennifer Knapp for a 50 city tour. The tour was a huge success. We were now experiencing a consistent audience of over 2500 people a night.
Third Day also particapated on a project called City on a Hill. We recorded a song for the record and Mac sang on a song called God of Wonders. Offerings was released in July with barely a whisper. However, our fans bought the record. Than, they told their friends and so on. By the time we returned to the studio in the fall, Offerings was doing great and people were talking.
In the fall, we began working on our next studio release called Come Together. We literally built a studio with Producer Monroe Jones and began working on a new record. Powerfully affected by the view of unity we had seen from stage over the last year, we wanted to challenge our fans to draw closer together.
