I do what I love, thank God. I get to make music and get inspiration through Judaism. I can see why people might be surprised, because it's not been done before. It's certainly not typical. People are always trying to wrap head their around it. But it's probably simpler than everyone thinks.
It confuses me that Christian living is not simpler. The gospel, the very good news, is simple.

Life was so much simpler in pre-video days when everyone refused invitations because the 'Forsyte Saga' was on.
