Faith In Music!
I'm an evangelist. I do a lot of stuff, but first and foremost I seek to serve the Lord in every way possible. Tonight we had a gathering for a young lady's graduation. Following the fun, food, and fellowship time together(about 20 of us with the youngest at 2 and the eldest at 60+)we sang Christmas songs of every genre. Laughing through many childhood favorites, and sharing the story of our Savior's birth in hymns that are very familiar. This particular group was one of our "all unchurched" people. We'll host groups like this many times throughout the season, not to attempt to get them through the doors, but as a way of sharing faith in a different way than we do on Sunday mornings. Amidst the singing this young heart was touched in a very real manner. She took the lyric sheets home with her, and I've got a hunch we'll be seeing her entire family in church next Sunday. Christmas is an opportunity to share God's love and make it come alive for people where they are in their life's walk. We had a wonderful time! The cleanup is done for the evening, and another day awaits to share God's grace. Sometimes the best sermons are found right in our seasonal songs of faith. In Christ's Love, Preacher.
