Saturday Concert

My co-leader and I took 2 of our life hurts God heals girls to an all day free christian concert in Napa Valley on Saturday. It's a 3 hour drive! The other 2 girls had commitments and couldn't make it.

The 4 of us had a great time. One girl had never really been out of our county much and looking at the homes of the rich winemakers really gave her a thrill. Most of the bands had a time when they gave out autographs and the girls were eagerly standing in line to get them. The two bands I was there to see were Barlowgirl and Newsboys. I had seen Barlowgirl before, but not Newsboys, and boy are they awesome in concert!! I would definately pay to see them! Other bands included Paul Wright, StellarKart, and Skillet. One of the girls said that she would remember this experience for the rest of her life, and that just made my heart melt. Such a simple thing, spending time with them, and it means so much.

One cool thing about christian concerts is that we could leave all our stuff on the blanket and go up front near the stage for the bands we really liked and know that nothing would be missing when we got back. I dare any of you to try that at a secular concert!!!

I am currently reading The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel and it is a fantastic book. I really have a hard time putting it down. His book talks about the Gospels in historical context, how Christ is mentioned in other histories of the time. How unlike other "histories" that only have a few surviving copies, the gospels have approximately 5,000 surviving copies!!! And the world accepts the histories and denies the Gospels, go figure.

God bless.

Hey there lady,

Glad you had a good time. And that your girls had a good time too. Our concert adventure was fun but I think Robo is getting a little bored with the whole concert scene. We may need to wait a little till he starts liking the bands a little more.
