Happy Halloween!

This morning Emilio wanted to hear the story of St. George and the Dragon, and it struck me how appropriate such a story is for today, Halloween. 

The celebration of Halloween remains a debated point between Christians (not so unlike the rightness or wrongness of reading Harry Potter), but trusting we can learn from the past to inform the present, here’s an article well worth reading:  http://www.biblicalhorizons.com/open-book/no-28-concerning-halloween/

For Judah’s Lion burst his chains,
and crushed the serpent’s head;
Christ cries aloud through death’s domains
to wake th’imprisoned dead.

(Verse 2, “Sing, Choirs of New Jerusalem”)

St. George Fighting the Dragon 1504-1506

Cadillac Sky

For those of you who enjoy bluegrass, I highly recommend this album.  I
heard their track “Redbird” sometime ago on the radio, and loved the
sound immediately.  With Nickel Creek taking a hiatus, it is
refreshing to find some new “new grass” to listen to.  For more info, and to listen to some of the songs from their album, checkout
