    obscure. Madosini is from South Africa she sings “Yaka Yaka.” The song opens with someone playing an uhadi or the mhrubhe. They are a one string bowed instrument. A percussive instrument that sounds like a gourd is also played. There is an instrument that sounds like a metal plate being struck. When the singing starts, it is rhythmic.

    Tigers out in Indiah” is an interesting article that discusses the influence of Indian culture on music, particularly the Beatles music.

The article discusses simple things like George going to a little convenience shop to purchase a cheap sitar, just to get accustom to the Indian instrument. Although the main focus was the Beatles, the…

    The first video Britain's Wicca Man: Modern Pagan Witchcraft Documentary was very interesting. The documentary's main focus is the history of the Wiccan religion and the man behind it all.

    I love how Copan worded this. I think this quote would have given me comfort in the time of being cornered of my friend’s apartment. Although there are so many things I think Zacharias could have shared about this topic that he didn’t, I think he is a great man and a creditable source.

    it seems that many people in today’s culture, even “professing believers”, are putting their personal desires and conveniences above God’s Word. Furthermore, not only have my thoughts about the depravity of man and the sinfulness of our society been stirred, but also the exclusivity of the Christian faith being the one true faith. Ravi explained how Christianity is not the only exclusive faith but is the only one that possesses correspondence and coherence when referring to the origin,…

    commitment, and allegiance. Hill acknowledges that faith comes as a gift from God and has an obvious correlation with “knowing God at a deep level” and actively doing His will (pg. 20). Trying to convey the manifestations of faith in schools the author claims that faith is complex and to explain it we must go well beyond just a summary of definitions. In this perspective, Hill attempts to describe faith as a hexagon with its six faces, which are: relationships, values, character, worldview,…
