non-stop complete bible readthrough!

so i had this idea - inspired by a high school practice of watching the original star wars trilogy back to back - that i wanted, at some point in my life, to hole up in a room somewhere and read the entire bible non-stop with a group of other crazy people.

something about doing it all at once - no breaks - is very exciting to me.

well, i mentioned it to some people at church ( and they ran with it. so this weekend, Wednesday March 28th to Saturday March 31st, the readthrough will be happening at St Stephens in the fields on the north end of kensington market. stop by any time. sadly, i won't be able to camp out so i'll have to set this up again sometime... new babies, older child, etc. I'll be there as much as possible. according to recordings that you can buy it should take about 73 hours or so.

but - *exciting* - the whole thing will be recorded and i hope that it will also be posted online at some point.

winter - don valley

don valley, originally uploaded by josh lyon.

i never thought leaving this city would be as hard as it is... as much as there is a lot to look forward to in kingston, the thought of leaving really is tearing at me in strange ways. the house in which both my kids were born, both of our two church communities where we have grown and loved and learned and changed, the hustle and bustle - big city excitement - never sleeping, always something happening somewhere, a ridiculous number of amazing people who i love more and more each day... you don't really realise how attached you are to people and to a place until you take seriously the idea of leaving...

i (heart) music dot net - Entire Cities review

from, a review of our unreleased album possibility and one of the sweetest things anyone has said about our little band:

Pitter-Patter: Entire Cities (The Central, with The Thurstons and Andyland)

They don't even have an EP to their names yet, but the songs on their Myspace suggest Entire Cities might come up with one of the best albums of the year. Imagine a twangier version of Sufjan, and that's what you have here.
