stewart and avril

at the beginning of July Stewart and his wife Avril were asked to go to the Holy Land to help to lead a week-long summer camp for a very special group of young people. these young people are Arab Christians living in Israel/Palestine, many of whom have suffered due to the violence in that volatile region.

Stewart and Avril share their thoughts on a week that changed their perceptions of the Holy Land, its people and its place at the center of their faith.

musical interlude :: 2.25

this week we take a break from the chatter and bring you a refreshing musical interlude from Stewart.

Stewart used to be a club DJ, long, long ago. he hung up his headphones a while ago but has come out of retirement for a digital experiment in music curation. the result is a musical interlude with a distinctly summer vibe of blissed out beats for those endless summer days, whether you’re lying on a beach, reading in the garden or talking the night away with friends. relax and enjoy.
