The Worship Quote of the Week for (02/14/2006):

The Gospel Gives Wings
Please see the information below about lectures and a jazz concert
by Jason Harms and the Jason Harms Quintet, February 21-22, 2006,
in Louisville, Kentucky. Spread the word.

Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is from the quill of the seventeenth-century English preacher and writer, John Bunyan, the author of what is arguably the most famous Christian allegory, PILGRIM’S PROGRESS. As a bonus, you can hear a terrific jazz setting of these same words by the Jason Harms Quintet (see below).


Run, John, run! The Law commands!
But gives me neither feet nor hands.
Far grander news the Gospel brings:
It bids me fly and gives me wings!”

–Attributed to John Bunyan (1628-88)

Please take a moment and listen to “Run, John, Run” by The Jason Harms Quintet. They have generously made a music link available at (click on “2. Run, John, Run”). I am so delighted that Jason and the group will be my guests for lectures and a concert in Louisville, Kentucky, on February 21-22. For details and a color flyer, please see
