The Pledge of Allegiance
A Short History

What is the New Covenant, and to whom does it pertain?

The answer can be found in Jeremiah 31:31-33 (see also Hebrews 8:8-13, etc.)


Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Behold Heb 8:8, Heb 8:13
new Matt 26:28


Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Heb 8:9


But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Heb 8:10, Heb 10:16

More than just a question to ponder...

What is the New Covenant, and to whom does it pertain?

(The answer can be found at Jeremiah 31:31-33.)

This is an interesting piece for our Scrapbook page... We were actually invited today (March 19, 2007) to consider appearing on an episode of the following "Hit Reality" television show... After due consideration, and a very pleasant telephone interview, we kindly opted to forego the opportunity.


I am a casting producer for ABC Television's hit reality show, Wife Swap and I came across your website while I was doing research on family bands. I thought it couldn't hurt to send you an email to see if you might find yourself interested or may be able to help me find a family for an upcoming episode. We are looking for families -- moms, dads, kids -- that loves music, plays and performs in front of crowds. It should be more than just a fun thing to do, it should be a passion in their lives. They should practice and perform several times a week. Ideally, everyone in the family should participate and/or play an instrument(s) as a band, however that does not disqualify you if you do not fit that specific criteria.

In case you are unfamiliar with the show, the premise of Wife Swap is to take two different families and have the mom's switch place to experience how another family lives. Half of the week, mom lives the life of the family she is staying with. Then she introduces a "rule change" where she implements rules and activities that her family has. Each family should consist of two parents and at least one child over the age of five and should reside in the continental U.S. It's a positive experience for people to not only learn, but teach other families other ways of life.

Wife Swap airs on Disney owned ABC television on Mondays at 8 pm (the family hour) - which was on before Monday Night Football! We focus on having fun, learning and teaching.

My hope is that you could forward my information on through out the family band community so that if anyone is interested, they will be able to reach me.  Maybe you even have a family in mind that you could refer me to.  I am also attaching a copy of our release in case you want to forward it around to others or post it anywhere that might draw the attention of musicians, family bands, music lovers, performers and artists. That way, if they are interested, they can give me a call.  This is a very unique experience that can be life changing for everyone. In addition, each family that tapes an episode of Wife Swap receives $20,000 as compensation for their time.  Anyone who refers a family that appears on our program receives $1000 as a 'thank you" from us. (If you make an appearance as a result of this article, please use us as your reference - Thanks).

I appreciate you taking the time to read this - I know it is an unusual request. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call or email me with the information below. Please let me know if you think you will be able to help me. Thank you for your time.

Best regards,

Virgil Dorjo
