2018 Homecoming – Vol II
Last week I posted a few images of the local high school kids at the park taking photos of friends and family. After that event, and prior to dinner and the dance, a few of the kids from our church ventured over to the youth building for one last photo-op. The youth building is named Studio 412 and the inspiration comes from the Bible, 1 Timothy 4:12, “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love in spirit, in faith, in purity.” The example is one that we could all aspire to.
The girls are always up for a little more photo antics than the guys, when adults are around.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
This week is a “your choice” week so I am going to use it as an excuse to post another dance video. As a young adult I was a huge fan of Creedence Clearwater Revival and I still enjoy the work of John Fogerty as a solo act. I believe the only artist that I had more music of was Sir Elton John. Anyway, back to the dance floor. While looking for CCR videos I ran across this jewel. The dance genre here is the Carolina Shag. Enjoy.
While I loved the hard driving sounds of Fortunate Son and Travelin’ Band, one of my favorite CCR recordings was Lodi. I think all of us have felt like we were stuck in a Lodi at some point in our life.
By nature I am not a political animal. I am currently worn out with politics, but I like the message that John evoked in this tune as a solo artist. Sometimes status quo just isn’t good enough. We need a gunslinger.
As a bit of a sports fan and one of millions of American youth that grew up playing baseball, my all time favorite John Fogerty tune is…you guessed it, “Centerfield”. And yes, that is a guitar in the shape of a baseball bat. Have a blessed week.
