Where Is God?

There's a dyin' voice within me reaching out somewhere
Toiling in the danger and in the morals of despair
Don't have the inclination to look back on any mistake
Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break
In the fury of the moment I can see the Master's hand
In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand.

- Bob Dylan, Every Grain of Sand 1981 CLICK HERE to read more

Rolling Stone’s State of the Union

God bless Jann Wenner — who did not recognize the word agape when Bono used it in a Q&A in 2005 — for trying so hard to coax Bob Dylan out of his fiercely guarded privacy on spiritual matters.

Rolling Stone assures its readers that more are on the way.] CLICK HERE and scroll down to read more

Multilingual Seder Bridges Gaps

The seder is not only about the traditional text. It's also about how to liberate ourselves from modern slavery, as we are all slaves of one thing or another," Cohen said, adding the Bob Dylan line, "You have to serve somebody." CLICK HERE to read more

STOCKHOLM 04.05.2002

Just a few days after performing at the 2002 Grammy's, Bob Dylan recorded a new re-write of "Gonna Change My Way of Thinking" for "Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan" with longtime friend Mavis Staples. One month later he would kick off a new tour in Stockholm Sweden and perform Solid Rock (what many consider the theme song to his gospel era concerts) for the first time in 20 years. Dylan would continue to perform this rousing song as well as other gospel era songs at numerous concerts across Europe and beyond. The two-time Grammy nominated compilation would be released on Sony/Columbia one year later on April 1, 2003.
