The only song I ever sang/played during a regular, Sunday service at Abbott Loop Christian Center, probably in ’83. Continue reading “(music video) Randy Stonehill: ‘China’ — “A billion hearts are beating / Far across the water / China… • And when the sun is shining / Their land is cloaked in darkness / China… • Silent eyes watching the western world / Guarded hearts hidden like precious pearls / Who can reach you, China / Praying for you, China””

To Be FREE!
Life in the Son
I really like this movie, largely because of the outstanding sensitivity and leadership by Lt. Charles B. Gatewood, played by Jason Patric.
Here, he’s rebuked by Robert Duvall (Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts) for not hating the Indians and Geronimo.
Later in the movie, he gives the cross he hung from his neck to Geronimo.
It’s rare for Hollywood to give a Christlike character a leading role.
Geronimo: An American Legend (1993)
Al Sieber, Chief of Scouts: I just think you’re a real sad case. You don’t love who you’re fighting for, and you don’t hate who you’re fighting against.
1st Lt. Charles B. Gatewood: Perhaps I could learn to hate with the proper vigor from you, Al.
The Lunar Eclipse — Testament to the Spherical Earth, Detriment to the Flat Earth | David Rives

“…sometimes it’s really transcendent. I’m sitting at the piano and I feel this music filling me and coming out through my hands. And honestly, I know that it’s coming from somewhere else. It’s not just a mental process. … I call it inspiration. … As you know, being a PK [preacher’s kid], when you’re inspired you’re filled with the Spirit. Oscar Hammerstein II came along, and he did believe in inspiration. He believed strongly in inspiration, and he must have had enough inspiration for both of us….” – Jimmy Webb @12:45, transcribed by Jeff Fenske
“Hammerstein contributed the lyrics to 850 songs….” (source)
