The Singer - Audio Cd
BY BAYARD RUSTIN
"[Quaker] Bayard Rustin became famous for working behind the scenes. The tactics of public protest that became familiar in the 1960s - marches on Washington, Freedom Rides, sit-ins, passive resistance, civil disobedience - were pioneered and refined by Rustin two decades earlier. Indeed, through his decisive influence on Martin Luther King Jr., Rustin created the model for the social movements of post-World War II America - civil rights, antiwar, gay liberation, feminist." - Michael Anderson, New York Times

Some of these experiences are small moments that we did not realize at the time would effect us so profoundly. There is always another a before and after and because of that, our lives grow deeper. From Quaker singer Songwriter Carrie Newcomer.

The only difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys. Even though we love them, boyfriends can sometimes act like little boys. And with these insights, insults, and daily affirmations their better half can learn to understand--and even celebrate--the complexities of that most complicated creature: the garden variety boyfriend who never loses his fascination with dirty jokes, television sports, and fast cars. The hilarious quotes come from Phyllis Diller, Mae West, Margaret Cho, Candace Bushnell and many more.

BY CARRIE NEWCOMER
This CD was in part influenced by Newcomer's friendships and recent collaborations with influential authors and theologians, including Parker Palmer, Phillip Gulley, Jim Wallis, Scott Russell Sanders and Barbara Kingsolver. Many of the albums tracks examine compelling ideas and questions arising out of her relationships within this Quakerly community- the idea that things are not always as they appear; thatgood exists at the center of things; that life is a process of transformation; that there is value in simple things; that wholeness is not beyond our reach. Through her songs, she asks: What is the nature of justice? Where do we turn for strength?

BY ANDY GOLDSWORTHY
"`I don't know what will happen but look forward to whatever changes occur,' writes sculptor Goldsworthy, a statement that can stand as his credo. An artist who works with nature in nature, he creates astonishingly subtle, ephemeral, seemingly impossible, and elegantly mysterious works out of stone, sticks, leaves, stalks, ice, and sand, constructions vulnerable to sun, wind, storms, tides, and time. . His newest [book] covers many recent works--including Garden of Stones, a Holocaust memorial in New York City and the subject of an essay by Simon Schama--and tracks his ongoing involvement with an ancient tradition, the building of cairns." - Booklist, starred review
