Luis Palau Festival

How awesome it is when people who love God gather together!!

We had a great time last night (and night before) at the Heartland Festival with Luis Palau. The songs were uplifting...especially Jeremy Camp. And Kirk Franklin, I am not usually a gospel/hip-hop fan, but I would listen to you leading worship ANY day!!
Can I just add another note here to our African American brothers and sisters? They add a special element to worship that is lacking from the rest of us. There is a joy (and an ability to keep a beat!) that the rest of us envy in you!!! It was SO much fun for me to watch a group of African American teens dance during the worship. It was as if they had worked on it for a long time! But it made me smile, knowing that they were experiencing complete joy in Christ.

By the way, sorry for not posting in a while. Life gets HECTIC for youth ministers in the summer! I have ONE more week of church camp (next week) and then should start winding down. By sometime in August I should be able to post a bit more regularly. Thanks for checking in!
