I’m sitting in my kitchen drinking a cup of coffee and reading my Bible.

I just heard a song on “The Loft” on XM radio. The song is “Philosophia” by a group called The Guggenheim Grotto. I don’t know anything about them except that they are a new three-piece band from Ireland. But their song “Philosophia” caught my ear. Check out the lyrics…


When we’re young we set our hearts upon some beautiful idea
Maybe something from a holy book or French philosophia
Upon the thoughts of better men than us we swear by and decree a
Perfect way to end the war of ways the only way to be a…

I believe in The Way.

I believe in absolutes.

I believe we can be a work of art.

I believe Jesus is an artist.
