Saturday Sunday Sounds

Like many churches today, ours took some time at the beginning of the service to reflect on the blessings of our nation. I am often uncomfortable with these ‘patriotic’ services, particularly if they linger too long on veterans or the State itself. I love my nation as much as anyone (as 24 years in uniform will testify), but God alone is worthy of adoration in His house of worship.  But after noting the challenges we face today, I thought this was a VERY appropriate call to God’s people to pray. This is not our choir in the video but the song — and the message — are the same. In HIM — not our government, not our military, not our economy — have we placed all our hopes.

Saturday Sounds Star Wars

Star Wars turned 40 this week.  Recently, I found this masterpiece: the entire “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” reimagined as Star Wars music.  Not just one song — no, the entire album.  Embedded below is the first track.  You owe it to yourself to check the others out… particularly “Luke is in the Desert and Whining.”  Makes much more sense than Lucy and her diamonds.  Enjoy!
