Standing on the Rock

Our pastor gave us a good message last Sunday, and it just happens that it was the same teaching that he gave to a bunch of adolescent boys on a canoe trip. But just because it was originally put together for a group of teenage boys doesn't mean it couldn't be applicable to gr'ups.

Essentially, the study was about being on "the Rock," which is a representation of Jesus. The pastor made an anagram (or is it acrostic?) of the word "R.O.C.K." This is what it looks like to be "on the Rock."

R.="Righteous"
O.="Obedient"
C.="Centered" (I really liked that one)
K.="Knightly" (Not Keira)

Anyway...all I could think of after this message was a really old Petra album called "Beyond Belief." For anyone who isn't old enough to remember, Petra was the original Christian hard rock band, formed by guitarist Bob Harman. For the first (and still best) few albums, they had a really kickin' lead singer named Greg X. Voltz. Then John Schlitt from the secular group Head East became the lead singer until the group finally retired a year or so ago.

There is a song on "Beyond Belief" called "I Am On the Rock." I dug it out and listened to it last night at work. What memories! Heheh....good stuff.

TTFN, y'all.

Hey again.

Just read your post. Whatever happened to Greg X. Voltz? His voice was amazing!
