“Weekend” or “Flurries in the forcast”

Should be a good weekend. Heading to my brother’s tonight to hang out with him and Amy, Kristin, Brody and Lane. I haven’t had the chance to see them much the past few months, so it will be good to catch up. I hope to slip up to my sisters to see her, Grant, Shelby, Celeste and Chase on Saturday morning. It will be my only opportunity to see them this weekend.

My grandpa is in the state (from Virginia) and he and Mom and Dad are coming down to Eric’s around noon. So, I’ll hang out with them until 3:30 or 4, at which point I have to leave for Lansing to meet friends for the David Crowder Band concert in Grand Rapids.

Flurry of activity…but certainly not meaningless activity. Fellowship and worship: that’s basically the church…

I just saw the Collision Tour at EMU last Wednesday evening. It was an incredible concert and the passion amoung the people there encouraged my hope for the church. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Crowder was pretty sweet. We didn’t have the greatest seats, but that was fine. Sounded great; just didn’t get the full effect of the stage show.

But there was some funky tension in the atmosphere that a friend noticed as well. I think we nailed it down to the fact that one can interact with Crowder’s live performances in so many different ways.

Some people come for a worship experience, some come for a concert, some come because they drove their youth group there. Some people have hyped-up emotions entering the concert and try too hard to meet God during the show, hoping that Crowder will somehow usher them into the presence of God when it is entirely possible to have that experience on their own, in their bedroom.

Anyway, those are just some thoughts. I certainly enjoyed myself and pushed myself to express my committment to God in ways that Crowder suggested and made me feel uncomfortable.
