Jeremy Affeldt

Holy and righteous people aren't idol-worshippers or backstabbers or God-haters. We don't gossip, murder, tell lies, steal, or have immoral thoughts. It doesn't square with who we are. We are confident in our understanding of who we are in Christ.

Iain S. Thomas

While all the poetry in the world might not be worth as much as one good doctor, if there is a reason we are alive, if there is a reason we're here, it can be found in poetry. It is the barest bones of the human experience and it captures the soul in flight.

This great inner wanting yearned for a freedom we don't much talk about these days, in our relative affluence and comfort, but the music and the movement of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, with its roots in Africa, in Gospel revival -- in growing up black in America -- went so much deeper than that.
