Trinity Church: Lower Manhattan 
“Easter is…
Joining in a birdsong,
Eying an early sunrise,
Smelling yellow daffodils,
Unbolting windows and doors,
Skipping through meadows,
Cuddling newborns,
Hoping, believing,
Reviving spent life,
Inhaling fresh air,
Sprinkling seeds along furrows,
Tracking in the mud.
Easter is the soul’s first taste of spring.” 
― Richelle E. Goodrich

Brother Joscephus band playing at the Seaport in the shadows of the Brooklyn Bridge
Since 2007 Brother Joscephus and the Love Revival Revolution Orchestra
has been on a musical mission to make the world a more righteous place.
The two main visionaries of this 12-piece explosion of love -
Brother Joscephus and his eccentric cohort,the Right Reverend Dean Dawg -
dip heavily into a gumbo rich with the powerful rhythms of New Orleans,
old school funk and soul, classic rock and a healthy dose of feel-good gospel music.

The Band gave a rousing performance that had the audience on their feet.
When you combine the music and the message with a one-of-a-kind, high-energy stage spectacle, you got yourself one hell of a revolution on your hands.
From their home base in Brooklyn, New York, Love Revivals have taken place all over the nation, from New Orleans to Burlington, Vermont and Los Angeles to the Hamptons. The band’s legendary self-titled debut CD was released to rave reviews and accolades (“I Won’t Be That Man” and “A Child Shall Lead” were both selected as finalist in the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Competition). “Live at Brooklyn Bowl” followed in May, 2011 and won the Independent Music Award for Best Live Performance, 2011. “Revolution of Love,” released in 2013, takes their signature Epic Gospel Rock to another level. Blending elements of funk and soul with 70’s prog-rock sensibilities this groundbreaking, love-infused concept album defines the Secular Gospel movement.

At last night's 1st Precinct Community Council meeting, Captain Brendan Timoney (pictured)
spoke about the dangers of texting and walking.
Indeed TD2 Officer Jimmy Rudolph spoke about a woman who was run over in the subway( miraculously not killed) who was texing and walking, and fell on to the subway tracks and run over by a train.
From the NY Post story:
Dye had been texting in the Broadway-Lafayette Station in Soho at about 10 a.m. Thursday when she slipped on the wet platform and fell onto the tracks — just as a southbound B train was rolling into the station.
Workers cut power to the track and freed Dye, who was under the train but not hit by its wheels.
The 25-year-old South Carolina native, who now lives in Bed-Stuy, had been scheduled to perform Friday night at a Valentine’s Day show at The Stand in Gramercy Park.

So Please don't Drink and Drive
Don't Text and Walk
