    I will, Evan. (keep playing the soundtrack, that is.) I appreciate your perspective as well. Still would love to do the Multicultural Ministry workshop out your way. Let's talk off-blog soon! :) Have a good weekend!

    Tracey - absolutly. I'm sure if I tune in and watch any of the TV recaps and tributes to their lives, this will spark deeper memories and touch my heart. I think of comments I've heard from those who returned to the church that would support your thoughts. (I did not grow up in the church so this is all conjecture for me)
    Tracy - thanks for adding your perspective. Keep playing that soundtrack - it's a great one.

    Interesting perspective, Evan. I have to admit that the role that MJ's music played in my life extended WAY beyond weekend dances in college (it literally was the soundtrack of my childhood) and therefore that experience and my feelings on his death are significantly different. However, I think you can also draw a parallel with the church in another way. Sometimes it is the memory of that foundational experience in church that draws people back ...once they realize what they've lost and how far away the church has come from the authenticity of its early years (very similar to both Farrah and MJ).
