Friday night, my daughter and I made our way to Atlanta...
Gwinett, to be more specific...to see and hear one of our
favorite Christian recording artist, Chris Tomlin, and one
of our favorite speakers, Louie Giglio.
This makes our third time attending one of their concerts
and it is always a wonderful night of worship and fun.
The arena was full and Chris was happy to be playing
to the "home crowd"...he lives in Atlanta. He and Louie are
staff members at Passion City Church.
The words to the songs are always on the big screen
(although I don't think most folks need them!)
so the crowd sings along.
Several times, Chris stepped back and just listened to
those thousands of voices praising God.
I couldn't help but think what a thrill that must be for him.
He is man who has committed his life to leading people
into worship and to see the fruit of his labors manifested...
wow! I know that must bless his heart and encourage his soul!
Louie's message is always powerful.
He uses humor to get your attention and then...pow!
he grabs you with this great truth from scripture.
They are both passionate about their Lord and their ministry.
On the last song, an upbeat praise song, they threw out beach balls!
That was quite a surprise!
It was the last stop on the tour and I think
they just wanted to celebrate!
With a baby due in a few weeks, I was grateful for
the opportunity to have an adventure with my sweet girl.
It will be a while before we can have this kind of
"girl's night" again.
As she said..."it was a treat!"...for both of us!
