In Jerusalem last month, we were privileged to spend an evening with "Wasat El-Tarik"--an unusually gifted quartet of musicians. Two are Jewish, two are Palestinian. Together they reach across their many differences to make a music that inspires and moves. It was an evening I won't soon forget!
It strikes me that artists are our most prophetic voices these days: those who refuse to give up on beauty and grace, justice and peace. I'm grateful for them and for the many ways they encourage me to keep on keepin' on. Praise God for every inspired phrase and note and verse!
