Hello and Greetings,
How has your fall been? Mine has been busy with preparation for upcoming private parties during the holidays. For me it’s too early to be thinking about Christmas but the parties I get to play for are great. I have to prepare early.
Gladfest was an overcast cooler day where not as many people came but those who did enjoyed the listening to me. There were some workers that stopped by and listened. Overall it was fun.
Christmas Concert –
On December 16th Northland Cathedral will be having its annual Christmas Concert. This is something you don’t want to miss. There is so much music/variety that will really uplift your spirit and make the season that much sweeter. There will be singers, symphony, jazz and more. Check out for more info.
What are We Becoming? !!!
It’s really sad what’s been happening in these past couple of weeks. Bombs have been sent to politicians, elderly, weak and helpless people have been killed in a place of worship and we wonder why or what’s going on. What makes this worse is some of our top political leaders promote this kind of evil. I want ask you as I ask myself “What are we becoming?”, “Who do you/I want to be?” This has nothing to do with what political side you are on but a question on what road do we want to choose not just for ourselves but for others. I’d like to share what 1 Peter 3:8 says:
8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.
9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to
this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.
10 For,“Whoever would love life and see good day must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.
11 They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
I like the part where Peter indicates that when repay evil with blessing, we (you) will inherit a blessing. Isn’t that what we want in our lives are blessings? I know I do.
I’d like to ask a hard question here, Do you support this type of evil or are you in agreement with it? The bombs being sent, or people being gunned down in a synagogue. If you do, then ask if this will bring blessing in your life. Do you want blessing in your life?
I want to challenge you, (and myself), to spread some peace/blessing this week. We can start by praying for our leaders. It doesn’t matter what political party you support. ALL of our leaders in ALL branches of our government need our prayer. Pray also for our enemies whether its personal enemies or the enemies we hear about in the news. Also very important is to VOTE!!. If you’re over 18, you have a great responsibility to make a difference. So Please Vote. Let me emphasize that I am NOT choosing a party here. I am indicating that you need to vote.
Get Your Blessing!!
Thanks for your support and please take care and keep the emails coming.
