    by Scott Hoezee
    When the famed cellist Pablo Casals was around 90 years old, he still practiced the cello for hours each day. By that age and after his storied musical career, Casals surely had nothing left to prove. So one day someone asked him “Why do you still practice so much?” “Because,” Casals replied, “I think I’m getting a little better.” A great gift is no excuse to not also work hard. And for believers, faith and trust in a great God are no excuse to not also recognize that we still have much to do in our lives to cooperate with God’s care and protection of us. Don’t put your trust in earthly things but don’t fail to shore up things on earth either.

  • Singing the New Song

    by Gilbert Bowen
    Have you seen the movie "The Pianist." It is the story of one Jew, Wladyslaw Szpilman who escaped the Warsaw Ghetto and the cattle cars to Treblinka during World War II, a story he tells in his book of the same name. A concert pianist, he lives basically for his family and above all his music, ever hiding and on the run from the Nazis. Finally, while scrounging in an abandoned house for food, Szpilman comes face-to-face with a German officer. Instead of drawing his revolver, the officer asks Szpilman what he does for a living, and then leads him to a piano. Szpilman manages to perform Chopin's Nocturne in C-Sharp Minor, whereupon the officer hides him in an attic directly above the German headquarters until the Germans retreat. In the movie, this soldier is presented as a senior staff commander and Third Reich poster boy. In fact, Roman Polanski does not tell the true story. Michael Oren points out that far from being a young Nazi monster who is transformed by the music of Chopin, the officer who saved Szpilman was Wilm Hosenfeld, a recreational reserve officer in his late forties, a committed teacher and family man, an ardent Christian who abhorred Nazism. He lived his life by another music. In the name of justice, in the name of love, he repeatedly risked his life to rescue others, Poles and Jews, from extermination. These survivors later tried unsuccessfully to obtain Hosenfeld's release from a Soviet labor camp, where he died in 1952. He hazarded to keep a diary in which, on September 1, 1942, he asked: "Why did this war have to happen at all?" This was his guess. "Because humanity had to be shown where its godlessness was taking it .... This denial of God's commandments leads us to all the other immoral manifestations of greed-unjust self-enrichment, hatred, deceit, sexual license and the downfall of the German people. God allows all this to happen ... to show mankind that without him we are only animals in conflict, who believe we have to destroy one another. We will not listen to the divine commandment: "Love one another"...and must die, guilty and innocent alike."...
