The Music Dude - #1
July 18, 2013

Hey friends- I guess it’s my turn to post a blog here at NWCC.  As the “music dude”, the assumption would be that I would go directly to the Psalms and talk about something that was all poetic, flowery, feel-goody (not a word, but oh well), and generally musical.  Not today, friends.  I’m going to take you directly into the wide and weird world known as “my mind.”  Watch yourself.  It’s not necessarily the prettiest place in the world, and it’s quite dangerous.  You may get lost.  Keep all arms and legs ... read more
