WHAT THE @#$%?
I knew the whole cussing issue would come up soon enough. Just didn’t know it would come up so many times in one article! So here is where we get to deal with it, like it or not.
Some people think that Paul cussed in one of his letters. That is controversial at best – with some Greek scholars disagreeing with what others say on the issue. Those nutty Greek scholars – always disagreeing with one another!
Think of us like some gritty modern action movie that has no cussing. You know that the people making the movie cuss, and that the characters in the movie would also cuss in real life, but they choose not to show that because they want the movie to be seen by the widest possible audience.
So I guess you could say that we are like the Joker in The Dark Knight – creepy enough even without all the cusswords.
Don’t just complain about the world – do something to change it
The Not For Sale Campaign is designed to equip and mobilize Smart Activists to deploy innovative solutions to re-abolish slavery in their own backyards and across the globe. The Not For Sale Campaign seeks bridge knowledge to action: “With your help, we are working to raise awareness and collective understanding about human trafficking. But we live in a time and place where people are restless “to do something”. In recognition of this desire to act we will be completing and distributing handbooks for action. What can your athletics team do? What can your university do? What can your community of faith do? What can your business do? What can you do as a musician?” See www.notforsalecampaign.org (The Not For Sale Campaign did not buy this ad nor do they endorse this magazine – just givin’ ya food for thought)

Down the Line covers bands that explored the intersection between faith and art in the 1980s through the early 1990s – even though they were probably never accepted in to what is called “Contemporary Christian Music” because they were too edgy or alternative or liberal or for whatever reason. Some of these bands may still be making music today, and others may have moved on. We cover these bands (active or dormant) as well as any new projects by former members of these bands and any new bands that may have the same spirit as these bands.
