Today is Wednesday, January 8, 2014. What a whirlwind day its been. Covered a lot of ground with three different promotions rolling out tomorrow involving area Churches, Christian Bookstores and an eBlast announcing the April 12 Matthew Ward Concert with Bob and Jayne Farrell. Then we solidified the final sound and facility arrangements. Plus set up more social networking components with special help from Josh Parisoe of Social 4 Christ..Also special thanks to Dan and Martha Munizzii at Epic Worship. Whew!
The last ten days before a concert are crucial and most critical areas are coming into proper alignment. Everyday it is getting easier to sleep at night and I am waking up excited to see what our loving Heavenly Father is going to do today. He has been absolutely amazing the past 36 hours. His hand of favor is all over this event and I trust He is working unseen behind the scenes to cause the maximum benefit. All the Glory goes to Him. There is a point when you stand firm that He shows up and makes a way where there seems to be no way.
So we should peak and reach critical mass sometime late next week where it all comes together. I know Randy and Phil are looking forward for the opportunity to play a set together. I am not sure of the last time Phil Keaggy was in Central Florida but its been many years. My friends in Nashville tell me that he’s never sounded better. So here’s a great opportunity to hear one of the best guitarists in the world in a venue with absolutely no bad seats. Randy is in top form and simultaneous as funny and serious as a person can be. Its like his mind works equally from both the right and the left side. Given all the jet lag and bad coffee he’s had, that is quite cool. Plus, he’s really into reading and quoting Oswald Chambers… which is all good stuff.
Yes, I am thrilled today by how its coming together but we still have the large task of motivating 550 or 600 people to attend. I can honestly say that we are close to doing all that can be done. We’ve broken the fallow ground. Plowed and planted the seeds. We have watered and weeded as best that we can. But unless God sends His light by His son, Holy Spirit (and sun), it won’t grow and reach full potential. So we are just placing all our trust in His goodness and grace to bless our efforts. And there is no better place to be.
More tomorrow. Thanks for your interest. Blessings!
