      from Cornerstone Church Added 10 0 0

      The basis of true ministry is compassion and is bigger than any one person. After addressing the present need and admonishing His disciples to pray, Jesus sends them into the harvest field, under His authority, to both proclaim and show the Kingdom of Heaven. Ministry is to be enjoined, both then and now, with the full understanding that they/we will not be treated any differently than Him!

            • Real Scenes: Detroit


              from Resident Advisor Added 218K 2,650 103

              You can't talk about electronic music without mentioning Detroit. That's why in the second edition of Real Scenes, RA and Bench went to the city which birthed the genre we now call techno. Detroit has always had a creative streak, due in large part to the boom and subsequent bust of the auto industry. Quite simply, Detroit is a city of extremes, and its music reflects that. These days, Detroit's importance in the global electronic music scene is often referred to in the past tense. When we visited the city, though, we found a number of artists with their eyes (and ears) firmly set towards the future. After our time in the Motor City, it's clear to us that Detroit will endure and innovate for years to come. Visit the feature page on RA: http://www.residentadvisor.net/feature.aspx?1382
