The People Still Run Wild in Miami Beach

It's so bad that the leader of Miami's largest Hispanic gay group unloads in the Miami Herald: It shows our city as nothing short of a warzone - Filthy streets, a drive by shooting, multiple cars crashed in the process, and total chaos on the streets. This is unacceptable and must be controlled before we …

Month of Sundays: Obedience

Is the LORD as delighted with burnt offerings and sacrifices as he would be with your obedience? To follow instructions is better than to sacrifice.

Oasis was the touring group for Youth for Christ. As a result of that, their line-up was subject to frequent change, but in the course of that change they put out some pretty interesting music.

Achor: A Door of Hope, The Wine of Lebanon, and End of My Day

Achor was a church-based group from London. They produced (AFAIK) three albums, all of which are available on this page. A Door Of Hope (Dove 18, 1975) The first of the albums, a very folksy production more in line with the Fisherfolk/Word of God axis. Part of that includes singing in the Spirit, which one …

Month of Sundays: Love

"Teacher, what is the great commandment in the Law?" His answer was: "'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy Heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.'
