Gregg Bartell: Thoughts

"Religious"?? - May 3, 2009

Who's religious?
Dad never observant Jew, Mom never observant Methodist, me raised in no tradition whatsoever.
What's religious?
The songs on the album The Life We Learn With?
Not to me, and I wrote 'em! They're from the liturgy in the reform Jewish service, but if you step back just a bit, take the term "god" (or whatever) as a universal idea of every-one-ness (working on that), doesn't sound very religious.
I'm, for lack of a better word, a humanist. Don't do the god thing. The point?
Feel comfortable, whatever your persuasion, about engaging with the music. It's for everyone.
