Nothing beats Sony headsets!

Listening to that crisp and  soothing sound music is what I really like. My family has been lovers of music  and  plays well with different kinds of musical instruments since  I was young.  Our son  today plays the lead guitar  in our church worship team. At times,  the demand for him to practice new songs is very stressful due to his hectic schedule being a medical  technologist  student and a full academic scholar too! He  always enjoy  the time practicing new songs  using his  sony headsets.      .  The best part of it is the pleasure of  hearing the right tune with such quality  . He surely  enjoy playing the right chords and notes for our church worship team. Nothing beats sony headphones with it comes to hearing beats!

Paradigm shift for our youth Church

In the last 15 years of serving in the youth ministry , I have had ample experiences trying to incorporate some new ideas into ministry. By something new, I do not mean opening stripper poles or wine bar . I am thinking of going out from the comfort zone and having a paradigm shift. Like having different order of worship, new musical styles , new instruments, changed focus and other things .

Attempting to try something new with the vision of being relevant to the youth and its passion can often get one classified as liberal. But this is what we have to do being the the 21st generation, an era of modern technology . To start with, I did some inventory with our musical instruments and gadgets. This is what I found out : We have to upgrade the cymbals for our drum set , new bass guitar tuner , replaced all microphone caps, new set of wireless microphones and add portable amplifiers for mobility during campus crusades. After completing this one we can move on to the next plan.

Looking for Ukelele

Our family is musically inclined. We all love to sing and play musical instruments. My great grandfather loves to spend time in the evening singing to folk songs during his time while our grandma played a guitar. Our mom plays the piano, guitar and ukelele. My two siblings (I’m the only male), are expert piano players and they could sing too, while I enjoy playing the keyboards, piano and guitar and composing songs. My mom lately told me to look into a ukulele strings review since she wants to buy a brand new ukulele for herself. I will surprise her for this one. I’ll buy her that new musical instrument. I hope I can  get a cheaper ukelele from our local stores here.

The origin of Father’s Day

In 1909, listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd felt inspired by Anna Jarvis’s efforts and felt there should also be a Father’s Day. Her father, Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, had as a single parent raised his six children in Spokane, Washington after his wife’s death. She initially suggested June 5th, the anniversary of her father’s death, however, she did not provide the organizers with enough time to make arrangements, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday in June. Unofficial support from such figures as William Jennings Bryan was immediate and widespread. Calvin Coolidge recommended it as a national holiday in 1924 but the all-male U.S. Congress was mindful that passing a measure so favorable to males could be seen as a conflict of interest. In 1926, The National Father’s Day Committee met for the first time in New York City. Lyndon Johnson made Father’s Day a holiday in 1966, but the holiday was not officially recognized until the presidency of Richard Nixon in 1972 when he signed into law a permanent U.S. Father’s Day to be observed on the third Sunday of June.
