    Few Sundays ago we had a very nice visit from 2 members of the band, the 3 Kings.  On a USA tour, these fellows are out to bring about a revolution in consciousness to Christ Consciousness.   Their aim is to bring back positive messages back in the hip-hop scene with God-hop.  The hip-hop scene for over the past decade has been dominated materialistic and egoistic material.  The 3 Kings work on overcoming this negativity by bringing in non dogmatic God appreciation,...

    “When you get to the place where you would worry, stop and pray.” (from Edgar Cayce, compliments of my daily calendar) That’s what I did regarding the Srimad-Bhagavatam class I gave this morning; it was the first time I’d been asked to give class since I moved to Alachua (except when Akuti asked me to stand in for her once); and the verse was quite challenging.
