“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

WHILE HE AND HIS PIANO GENTLY WEEP

Nobuyuki Tsujii
I have written before about how music can express the heart where words fail. Below is a composition by the young blind Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii: It is called "Elegy for the Victims of the Tsunami of March 11th 2011 in Japan." The music expresses Tsujii's sorrow -- and he and his piano were weeping throughout the performance at Carnegie Hall in New York.

This man is just amazing. I never heard of him, where have I BEEN?

What a beautiful act of God to put him in the world. Repeatedly people hearing him give credit to God for giving him such talent which has such sensitivity.

How we need beauty like this to keep us truly human, and to remember that we were created for communion with God and with each other. We are not robots. We are not to be stupid. We are not to be isolated and without relationship. We are to reflect the love and the brilliance of God's heart and design for the world.
