  • “What’s the deal with contemporary Christian music? Is it as great as some say, or is it evil and vacuous, as others claim?”—Katy
    We may not dismiss “contemporary Christian music” with a broad brush of self-righteous condemnation any more than we can accept the genre uncritically.
    The question reflects the incessant squabble between lovers of hymns, ancient as well as modern, and proponents of more current styles of music. The conflict tends to be largely generational: old folks almost always decry the “new fangled stuff” and young folks almost always reject the “boring, old school” ways of their fathers.
    Paul instructed the early church to sing a variety of “psalms, hymns and spiritual songs” (Eph. 5:19-20; Co. 3:16). Interestingly, his phrase to some degree reflects the historic progression of Western church music.
    The Protestant church of the 18th to 20th centuries sang “classical” hymns. The evangelical surge of the mid-20th century introduced an increasing focus on “spiritual songs” (called “choruses” or “praise and worship” music.)

  • There’s a new class being offered at Karen Wray Studios. “All About Awesome Acrylics,” sign up is under way with the first class starting Oct. 15.
    “Acrylics paints are awesome,” artist Melissa Bartlett said. “They are the masters of disguise and Jack of all trades of the art supplies world. You can create a soft wash watercolor or a thick palette knife impasto painting, a mixed media collage or a hand pulled print  all with the same  set of acrylic paints.”
    Bartlett, a nationally known artist, is teaching the six-week class for those who wish to learn more about the medium.
    The class will cover a wide range of techniques and styles and can accommodate beginners, as well as experienced painters.
    According to Bartlett, acrylic paints are a fun way to experiment with painting. “They are a non-toxic, easy to clean up alternative to oils that provide good opportunities to learn about values, color, mixing paints, brushwork and more,” she said. “Acrylics allow for a wide ranged of effect by using gels and special techniques. They also dry fast, which let’s us paint over mistakes, or simply finish a painting in record time!”

  • NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The married stars of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” are trading the drama of reality TV for prison.
    Teresa Giudice was sentenced Oct. 2 in U.S. District Court to 15 months in prison on conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges while her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months by a judge who castigated them for failing to disclose all their assets yet gave both a measure of leniency.
    In a nod to the couple’s four young daughters, Judge Esther Salas staggered the sentences so that Teresa Giudice will serve her sentence first. Teresa Giudice is scheduled to report to prison in early January.
    Teresa Giudice, 42, cried as she apologized in court before her sentencing.
    “I fully take responsibility for my actions. I need to learn to take responsibility for myself,” she said. “I can’t even explain the pain that I have gone through. I am more sorry than anybody will ever know or understand.”
    Joe Giudice also apologized and said he had disgraced many people. He faces an immigration hearing when he completes his sentence and likely will be deported. His attorney has said Giudice came to the U.S. as an infant and didn’t know he wasn’t an American citizen until he was an adult.
