  1. My favorite recorded version of this is the 1993 issue of a 1966 performance of the complete oratorio by Sir Colin Davis conducting the London Symphony Orchestra and Choir. This two-CD set was issued by Philips (#438 356-2). Not sure if it's currently available any more.
  2. Well, God did use the USAF to move me out to Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson, AZ. It was while I was in Tucson that I visited an off-base IFB church back in April, 1966, where I first heard the Gospel of Christ and received Him as my Savior!!

It's a PG-13 film put out by Pure Flix and has been released for public viewing as of March 20, 2015. If any of you know anything about it, I'd love to read what you have to say about it.
  6. I'm a new member to this Forum and will go by the title WPE3BQL. I hope to be able to participate at some level in at least some of the postings I read on here. I'm 68 YO, single/never married, and have some medical challenges (stroke, etc.) that limit some of my activities. My interests vary from radio monitoring, electronics (I'm a retired AT&T Electronic Technician), and our military (Retired from the US Air Force/Air National Guard after serving 23 years as an avionics technician primarily on the C-130 transport aircraft).
