Trick or Treat?

“All you have to do is walk up to a house, ring the doorbell, and say ‘Tricks or treats.'”
“Are you sure it’s legal?”

– from ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’

Check out performers at FAO Schwartz playing Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor on the “big” piano. For some reason, it’s not quite as spooky as hearing it on a large pipe organ.

Today’s also a great day to catch up on an older post, The Most Mysterious Mystery (Oct. 2010).

“On Friday a thief”

Yesterday’s quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer reminded me of these lyrics from a song by John Mark McMillan. Below the video you’ll find a link to McMillan’s commentary on the song.

“On Friday a thief
On Sunday a King
Laid down in grief
But awoke holding keys
To hell on that day
The first born of the slain
The man Jesus Christ
Laid death in his grave.”

– excerpt from “Death in His Grave” by John Mark McMillan
