Love – The Highest Common Denominator

Love is the lowest  highest common denominator in the commandments of God. As Jesus navigated the waters swirling with Sadducees and Pharisess, he was pressed with a question by a ‘legal expert.’ Scholars have noted 613 commandments throughout the Old Testament and during the time of Jesus there was debate as to the most important […]

Musical instruments show signs of wear.  Take a look at the ones that are not merely decorations and you will see the wear marks.  E.g. the part of the drum kit that is beaten more often than the rest, the one string that is plucked or strummed to death. Often in the process of practice […]
