this weekend Michelle and I (and the kids) had the privilege of visiting her parent’s church in Champaign-Urbana, IL. it’s a new church plant that they started recently, and it’s the first time we were able to go. they asked us to do a song or two during the service, so we worked on “Jesus, All For Jesus” by Robin Mark and the Indelible Grace version of “Jesus, Lover of my Soul”. we had a few sparks fly while we were practicing, but I think it worked out well in the end. I always love it when we can harmonize together.
but it’s funny that we always seem to fight a little when we’re doing music, especially because we almost never fight (except when we’re both cranky and tired). my current theory is that it’s hard work for us to get it to where we like it when we’re singing, because our ranges are pretty different. most of our interactions are familiar to us by now, but this is still something new, so we get some frustration and friction. but thankfully in the end it usually works out.
anyway, I can only imagine that it was a moving experience for Mom and Dad T to have their daughter participate in the worship service they were leading. God is blessing the little church plant, and we pray that He will prosper the preaching and living of the Word in their town.
