You too can lead O-H-I-O

In order to execute the entire Script Ohio, the whole band must follow one person – the Drum Major. This leader is decked out in a stylish uniform and carries a huge baton.

Open the Eyes of my Heart, Lord

In Ephesians 1, Paul didn’t pray for material blessings, but for spiritual perception. In verse 19, he prayed “the eyes of your understanding being enlightened.” The word understanding means heart.
