Dear Lamp Mode & Hazakim
Some of you are aware of the medical issues I have been facing in recent months. About 4 months ago I began having problems swallowing food & liquids. The problem got progressively worse until I was unable to eat or drink nearly anything. I finally went to the doctor and, after a number of tests, discovered that I have a rare esophagus disease called achalasia. Essentially, the nerves of my esophagus, as well as the sphincter muscle which leads into my stomach, do not work to allow food to pass. Because of this, I am unable to eat most things and am limited to a liquid diet consisting mainly of Ensure & vitamin drinks. Pizza has never looked so good!

PERSPECTIVE. It determines the way we view the world, it shapes our value systems and fuels our aspirations. As believers, our perspective emanates from a clear understanding of our identity in Jesus Christ. Biblically speaking, we are citizens of Heaven and ambassadors on Earth. In short we are pilgrims. It is with these facts in mind that Zerubbabel presents his sophomore album - 'Pilgrim Perspective'.
