Halloween is a holiday devoted mostly to one thing: FEAR. People buy tickets to experience a good scare in haunted houses or darkened movie theaters, or dress up as their favorite monsters. But our culture’s fixation with fear seems to go beyond October 31st. Fear-driven headlines, marketing strategies, and rhetoric fill the world around us, and in the face of it all we might find fear taking root in our own hearts. If we’re honest with ourselves, many of us experience fear daily, about everything from being late to a meeting, to getting on an airplane, or even about our own future.

In 1988, Rosemary Johnson was a violinist for the Welsh National Opera. Her future looked bright, until – a car accident changed everything. After waking up from a coma, doctors informed her that she would never be able to move again. And for the next thirty years, Rosemary’s violin remained silent. But now, almost thirty years later, thanks to some cutting-edge technology, Rosemary is beginning to make music again. Working with specially designed software, she can altar notes and musical phrases by simply focusing her eyes on different colored lights on a computer.

Have you ever seen one of these? It’s a wooden nickel. And during the American Civil War, the government issued something like this in place of traditional coins. But unlike the nickels we know, these wooden ones had no intrinsic value. So when the troubled American economy recovered, these coins lost their worth. Even though they had the same seal and shape of a normal nickel, anyone who touched one of these knew it was worthless.

Steinway grand pianos are legendary for their craftsmanship. Since 1853, the Astoria-based company has created iconic instruments; working for an entire year to assemble a single piano from twelve thousand individually handcrafted pieces. The focus and dedication necessary to create these beautiful instruments is amazing. But as advanced as a Steinway piano is, it falls impossibly short of a human being. We are the true masterpieces!

There’s a building in lower Manhattan that has weathered the fires of the Revolutionary War and watched the greatest city in the world grow up around it. It’s called St. Paul’s Chapel. But you might know it by another name – the Little Chapel That Stood. Located less than 100 yards away from the World Trade Center, it was given that nickname after it survived the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11th, 2001.

Which music platform do you think turned a larger profit last year – an “app” like Spotify or vinyl records? The answer might surprise you. According to Time magazine, vinyl records brought in more than $226 million dollars last year in the United States alone – almost double what free digital music streaming services earned from advertisements. But what really made me scratch my head was that most of the people buying these old records were in their 20’s and 30’s. What’s old is new. And actually, there’s a similar movement happening in churches right now too.
