Josh Ritter – “The Temptation of Adam”

Several years ago, I happened through Moscow. Moscow, Idaho, that is. Yes, I’ve been to the big one as well, but that’s beside the point. I know of two people from Moscow, Idaho: Josh Ritter and Mark Runsvold. I thought it would have been neat to run into Mark Runsvold, but it didn’t happen. And I’ve never had occasion to go back.

Christ is Risen! (Music on Monday)

In the Christian world, Pascha (Easter) is the greatest celebration of all, even eclipsing Christmas. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior, who was born of a virgin. Easter, though, celebrates the resurrection of Christ from the dead, and in so, the destruction of death itself, and the foreshadowing of the final destruction of evil. Every Sunday is a little bit of a reminder of this, but Easter is the pinnacle of this.

Forgive me for the “blog silence” as well… Things just get crazy, and it’s hard to sit down and write!
