The Theme “Crabbed Age and Youth” was inspired by a Shakespeare sonnet by that title. Here is a a you tube of russian girl reciting the poem~ Warning she starts in russian but then recites the poem in english: YouTube Link crabbed age and youth~russia. Join us this summer for a rocking good time!
“Handel with his Messiah, Bach with his Matthew Passion, Rembrandt with his Denial of St. Peter, and the architects of those Cistercian churches were not evangelizing, nor making tools for evangelism; they worked to the glory of God. They did not compromise their art. They were not devising tools for religious propaganda or holy advertisement. And precisely because of that they were deep and important. Their works were not the means to an end, the winning of souls, but they were meaningful and an end in themselves, to God’s glory, and showing forth something of the love that makes things warm and real. Art has too often become insincere and second-rate in its very effort to speak to all people, and to communicate a message that art was not meant to communicate. In short, art has its own validity and meaning, certainly in the Christian framework.”
So if you’re not too proud,
Or too old,
I will throw you My forgiveness
As I did when men like you
Were coldly nailing Me
To the splintered stake of death.
My forgiveness reaches out
As you hear Me cry, “You’re in,”
As you see Me sweat and die
For all the broken ties
Between mankind and God.”
