How Sweet That Sound

The gospel people have got Jesus’ message right.* Gospel has the spirit of life, of rhythm, of joy. Now that’s the Jesus I admire. The true spirit of love. Thank you Jesus!

I just discovered Troy Ramey. What an incredible voice!

I’ve just been listening to the following fabulous CD; you can’t hold still while you listen to it: Somebody’s Gotta Do Something, Troy Ramey and the Soul Searchers

*What a contrast with organized religion!

About Lloyd Kahn

He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014).

  1. Yep – it's great. One of my greatest vacation memories ever was taking the time to go to a black Baptist service in Williamsburg, VA when we visited there. It was about 2 1/2 hours long, but amazing!


  2. Thanks for the tip. And I agree, Lloyd: the organized church has a tendency to lose sight of the simple but radical message of Jesus. But gospel goodness can bring it all home!
