Friday night at North Wind Manor we hosted the venerable Michael Card for an evening of discussion about the Gospel of John. Andrew Peterson both kicked off the evening and closed it with a song (one of them brand new), and in the intervening 90 minutes Michael kept the room spellbound as he talked about his approach to the gospels and researching his commentaries on each of them. He has a way of talking about Scripture that kind of blows my mind. His knack for putting things in context and enabling the listener to see the story come alive in new and exciting ways is something I’ve rarely experienced. Here’s hoping he’ll be back for more in the months to come.
But enough about last Friday night. Tonight kicks off the first of what we hope will be a long-standing tradition: The Local Show. It’s at The Well Coffeehouse in Brentwood (right off I-65) and each show will feature a different line-up of songwriters and special guests. Tonight we’ve got Don Chaffer (of Waterdeep), Randall Goodgame, Eric Peters, and Sandra McCracken. They’ll be playing in the round and having a blast starting at 8pm. Doors open at 7pm and you’re invited. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door (Rabbit Room members can flash their cards at the door to get in for only $5).
