What's in a Name?

To all the people who are wondering about the name, it comes from two sources.

First and foremost is 1 Peter 2:4-5: "As you come to him, the living Stone - rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him - you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priest hood, offering spirtiual sacricies acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."
In Tennessee, there is a camp, Camp Living Stones, where I first became aware of this verse, and also where I accepted Christ.

The second source is my love of rock music. While I listen to most forms of rock, "Christian" rock holds a special place in my heart. However, to quote Switchfoot, it's more "Christian by faith, not genre."

Rock on.

ullo? ullo? Do I get to be the first to taint Drew's blog? I've got a peaceful, easy feelin'! Rock on, Drew, that you began this blog honoring your God who made you! My growing, longy-ing (a word?) hair appreciates Christian rock as well - see you at "Rock the Light" in 2 days! Peace out! (an aging youth pastor's lingo).

Never asked about that (the origin of your "rocksalive"). Glad I know.

I'm reading all your blogs! Guess where I'm starting?
