September 27, 2012 | Canteen Crew

Posted on 09/27/2012 6:00:42 PM PDT by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
To get you all in the mood
for the Saturday music thread
Fabulous FRiday presents

THE TEMPTATIONS

The Temptations are an American vocal group
known for their success in the 60s
and 70s at Motown Records.
The group's repertoire has included,
during its five-decade career,
R&B, doo-wop, funk, disco, soul,
and adult contemporary music.

Formed in Detroit, Michigan, in 1960 as The Elgins
(not to be confused with another Motown group with the same name),
the Temptations have always featured at least five male vocalists/dancers.

The original lineup
included members of two local Detroit vocal groups:
from The Distants, second tenor Otis Williams,
first tenor Elbridge "Al" Bryant,
and bass Melvin Franklin;
and from The Primes, first tenor/falsetto Eddie Kendricks
and second tenor/baritone Paul Williams (no relation to Otis).

Among the most notable future Temptations
were lead singers David Ruffin and Dennis Edwards
(both later solo artists),
Ali-Ollie Woodson, Ron Tyson, Glenn Leonard,
Damon Harris, Richard Street, Theo Peoples,
and G. C. Cameron.

Ain't Too Proud To Beg

Beginnings

Childhood friends Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams,
Kell Osborne, and Wiley Waller formed a doo-wop group
called the Cavaliers in their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, in 1955.

Future Group manager Milton Jenkins
even created a sister group for the Primes
called the Primettes, who later became
the legendary Supremes,
recruiting Florence Ballard, Mary Wilson,
Diane (later Diana) Ross, and Betty McGlown
for the spin-off act.

Success

The Temptations were the first Motown act
to earn a Grammy Award.
Six Temptations (Dennis Edwards, Melvin Franklin,
Eddie Kendricks, David Ruffin,
Otis Williams, and Paul Williams) were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.
Three classic Temptations songs,
"My Girl", "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)",
and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone",
are among The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs
that Shaped Rock and Roll. Contents

The lives and careers of The Temptations
were one of several inspirations for The Five Heartbeats,
a 1991 film about a 1960s Motown-esque male group
starring Robert Townsend, Michael Wright, Leon,
and Harry J. Lennix.

In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine
ranked The Temptations #67
on their list of the
100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

A New Sound

The addition of Dennis Edwards to the Temptations
coincided with the adoption of a new sound
for the group by producer Norman Whitfield,
and in the fall of 1968, Whitfield began producing
psychedelic-based material for the Temptations,
derived primarily from the sound of funk band
Sly & the Family Stone..

Day Unknown

September 28, 2012

To many Londoners, 1666 looked like the year when Jesus would return. Prophecy enthusiasts had added 1,000 years since Christ’s birth to 666, the number of Antichrist, to arrive at the date 1666.

The world did seem to be on the verge of destruction when in 1665 a plague claimed the lives of 100,000 people in London. Then in September 1666, a London fire destroyed tens of thousands of buildings. Some wondered, Didn’t the Bible predict catastrophes at the end of the world? (see Matt. 24:1-8). Yet the year 1666 passed, and life went on seemingly as it had before.

Even in our own day, there are those who have predicted the end of the world. A date is predicted, the media covers the frenzy, and then that day passes uneventfully.

In God’s wisdom, the actual time of Christ’s return has been kept from us. Jesus said, “Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (Matt. 24:36). This any-moment aspect of Jesus’ return helps keep believers motivated in Christian service and spiritual growth all the time—not just near a certain date (25:1-13; 1 John 3:2-3). Be assured, Christ’s personal return will take place. And as we await that day, our lives should be marked by “holy conduct and godliness” (2 Peter 3:11).

Should He come in the dawn of morning,
At noon or at twilight dim,
I only pray that every day
I’ll be waiting and watching for Him. —Bearden
No doctrine is more closely linked to practical daily living than that of the Lord’s return.

Read: Matthew 24:1-8

Of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. —Matthew 24:36
Bible in a Year:
Amos 1-3
