ReImagine went really well last week. It was great to see Fred and Carol continuing to shake things up in their congregation. Fred shared from Henri Nouwen’s book, “Wounded Healer” and we had roundtable discussions about it. Sang a few songs, shared a bit about God’s hope in the midst of the struggle of the human condition. Had the chance to pray for God’s healing and offer our time and efforts to God…what a blessing…
See you next week at Starbucks…Hilde Bialach from the Crossing will be joining me…it will be great…peace..
Hey guys…I’m going out to play at Redeemer Church tomorrow night. Colleen Davick and Tom Crozier from the old Seeds days are joining me, along with Joby Morey who plays with the likes of the Psalters, GKB, Leper and many more. We’ll be doing some of my newer material, worship and have a time of sharing and the opportunity to ask for healing prayer…hope to see you there..
Hi guys, just wanted to post a little note and put a song up. I’m headed down to St Louis to see some old friends. Church of God at Baden is a great church. They’re really active in their neighborhood providing free meals, clothes, fellowship and the love of God. I’m thinking I’ll be playing at their coffeehouse Sat night, then leading worship Sunday morning, but you’ll have to call them for times…see you later…
I was overwhelmed by our weekend in Grayling! What an incredible time. It did feel like we were visiting friends, but now it feels more like family. I’ve been amazed at how Pastor Bud and the entire congregation opened their hearts to me. This is my third time back. On our first visit, Bill and I showed up at the Days Inn where they were meeting, to lead an acoustic worship service. I was still walking with hesitation at the time…”Lord, am I really supposed to go back into music?” was a common question in my mind.
At my second visit, I was able to see the building God provided so they would no longer have to meet at the Days Inn. And now, I’ve seen the land God’s provided for the building of their own church. What a privilege to see His hand move like that. The property they are building on is beautiful. And as I’ve seen through these years, Pastor Bud is not concerned with the outside of the church or where they meet, but the inside, or rather, his church family and the needs of his congregation. They have such a heart to share Jesus with the community of Grayling. It’s exciting to see.
I got my socks blessed off because Pastor Bud allowed me to share a sermon…my first ever! WOW!! I was a little nervous, but had a strong sense that God would meet me once I took my step. He did…He is amazing indeed!
Talk to ya’ll later…
