Songs Never Sung

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”1

Don Emmitte wrote, “One of the best autobiographies I have read is that of Loren Eisley, All the Strange Hours. Eisley is one of America’s greatest naturalist and scientist. In his book he tells of an incident early in his academic training, in fact in his first English class of college. It was a traumatic experience, one which changed the direction of his life. In his first theme assignment, the professor called him to stay after class and said, ‘You didn’t compose this; it is written too well.’ He had labored long and hard over the assignment, and it was indeed his work. But Eisley was shy. He did not talk back to his professor in those days. He simply turned away. He did not write another piece until well into his middle years.
