Worship Music May 27

This week was Mike’s last week in the 40 Days with Jesus series. Like last week he actually was using a text from before the crucifixion and resurrection – this time Matt 11:28-30, which is the famous, “come unto me all who are heavy laden…” passage. Looking back, I think perhaps I could have tried [...]

No brainer

This always makes me feel stupid somehow. Me: Wow, that’s a good price. But…I don’t think I need that. Website: But it’s a no-brainer. Me: Mmm, pretty sure I don’t need it. Website: Uh..no brainer. Me: Look, I don’t even know how to use the compressor I have, why do I need another one? Website: [...]

The end of an era

So…it has come to this. doxamusic.com is going dark. Well…unless someone else wants to register the domain name and put their music out there. We had a good run. And like many bands, the website had a much longer run than the band. Back in the early days of the band Doxa, we decided to [...]

Moogle Doodle

Today’s google doodle is in honor of Robert Moog, the creator of the Moog synthesizer and a pioneer in electronic music. The google doodle is kind of cool – you can play around with the knobs, you can record your creation, etc. So go play around a little bit, then go check out the moog [...]

Life in These United States

Seems like there used to be a Reader’s Digest column by that name. Anyway. This is just a collection of things happening in our grand country that you might have missed. Committee says boy can play on the girls team. So, apparently they originally decided that he was too good to play on the girls [...]

Worship Music May 20

Although it is part of Mike’s series on the 40 days after Christ’s resurrection, the message yesterday was from John 15 – the vine and the branches. Rather than try to force that theme too much, I went with a theme of dependence on God. We had several things going on, so I tried to [...]

8-0!

Congratulations to the San Antonio Spurs for winning their eighth playoff game in a row (and a franchise record 18th in a row overall). Tonight’s game was the toughest win of the 18 as far as I can remember. So congratulations to the L.A. Clippers for putting up a good fight, especially after the demoralizing [...]

I was going to do this, but my hair isn’t red…

I know that you, like me, want this art in your hair also. But be warned: the Judson school district does not approve. And to prove it they’re going to give this kid on-campus suspension (which, as the writer points out, is the worst kind of suspension since you can’t sit around at home and [...]
