Someone on the radio (ABC 702) just told us that the trombone was once considered so sacred that it could not be played outside a church. This brings to mind the contrast with the guitar which was considered too evil to be played in church, at another time.

Is there even really a clear cut division between secular and sacred if the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it?
Are some parts of our lives – for instance the time we spend sitting in church – more sacred than other parts – for instance going to work?
