I'm hearing good things from people I trust about the direction of Derek Webb's new album. <a href="https://twitter.com/scottacorbin" target="_blank">Scott Corbin</a> pointed me to one of the new songs on YouTube, "Everything Will Change."

It's encouraging that this song locates the resolution to the world's ills not in some social-engineering project of a political party but in the eschaton, when "you'll wake and the curse will break."

I also appreciate friends who have encouraged me to be as generous to Derek as I've tried to be to <a href="http://jimhamilton.info/2012/10/24/j-k-rowlings-the-casual-vacancy/" target="_blank">J. K. Rowling</a>. Point taken. Eager to hear the whole album.
