Revive

So, last weekend, we had Revive come and play at church not once, but twice!
It’s always nice to see the boys & it is particularly great to see how they are just going from strength to strength in terms of their songs & their performance! It’s pretty cool to hear about how they got to open for “Third Day” a couple of times. I am sure if they make it to the US (and therefore to a legitimate Christian market) they will big be big!
And when that happens, I will be the one seeking vicarious fame as I claim “I knew them when” or “I beat two of them at virtua tennis so emphatically that I suspect they will never play again”.
Sunday night’s gig was cool & it is was an interesting night for me too. Fergus & I decided fairly last minute that it might be best to change the passage that was being preached on (James 5 is a bit full on, especially when you are hoping to have lots of people come for the band) , so on the Friday evening I started writing a first person narrative from Thomas’ perspective, based on John 13-20.
I was quietly soiling myself with nervousness. That concern increased when, with 2 minutes before the service my powerpoint wouldn’t work. Fortunately, thanks to the cool head of Fergus, and his always-able son “Juniour Burger”, we were able to resurrect the computer & breathe new life into powerpoint.
The narrative went really well. I did it almost without notes, and am sure enough that with enough prep I could do it totally so next time. I got good feedback too, so that was appreciated.
Here are a couple of pics from the friday night.
