    JEPA Workshop at Central Park in Pasadena

    Central Park

    Workshop at Central ParkI hollered, "Oh no!" as I approached Central Park in Pasadena. All of the parking meters leading up to the park had signs in bright red letters with orders, 'NO PARKING'.

    Blow Your Trumpet – Make Harmony With the Lord

    Toot Your Trumpet –

    Toot-TrumpetIf you want to toot a horn, do it for the Lord. However, be sure you're playing in tune and according to the notes written in the score. The sheet music (Bible) doesn't lie. Open the Bible today and it could be classical; every note carefully planned and executed in sync with the orchestra and following closely the conductor. Tomorrow it may be a jazz tune; free-flowing …

Moses replied, "A rod." (Exodus 4:2) That question was also asked of the artists who attended the March 28th *JEPA Workshop which met at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA. We looked at how God performed miracles with the rod He had given Moses.

    Are You Good Enough?

    Gamble House Gamble House

    I purchased a song recently that would have never made it into my music library several years ago. The title is 'Good Enough' by Anthony Evans. In it, Evans states, "You don't have to be capable, just be available to follow where I (God) will lead."
