Jacob Frost
I'm a composer, performer, and lyricist currently studying music at Drury University, blessed and cursed with an imaginative mind, compelled to think and compelled by thought to write. I'm a Christian. I enjoy anything arts and music-related as well as theology, philosophy, ethics, politics, the humanities, and my own crackpot brand of psychology. My favorite word is "maudlin."

dog.   Her name is Dozer, and she is a
pain in the rear end, but I love her anyway, and that's all that matters.                               Ten
years ago, my parents, siblings, and I chose Dozer to be a part of our

Sheath Your Pitchforks, Repackage Your Confetti: Reflections on the Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby Ruling
               Yes, I'm
a little late to the party.   Most people
are sick of hearing about Hobby Lobby.   Most
people are probably ready to move on from the case to the media's new divisive
attention-grabber.   But there are

Song of the Week
Benjamin Britten/ Hymn to St Cecilia            Exquisitely beautiful, this piece (not exactly a "song") is choral music as only Benjamin Britten could write it, with one foot in the Middle Ages and another in the Twentieth Century.  The interplay between m...
