The Band...An Update

If you are a long time follower of the blog, you may recall that I am in a band called Grace Reigns Down. I say "am in" and not "was," though that could be up for debate. :-)

To make a long story short, Grace Reigns Down does still exist. We took some time off to catch our breath, regroup, send a member or two off to college, and discern what it is God is calling us to do.

For right now, as we all work full time and have 7 young kids between us all, leading worship on Sunday evenings at 6:30pm at First Lutheran Church is where you will find Grace Reigns Down. We feel truly blessed to be able to share our gifts each Sunday evening in a friendly and open environment where all are welcome regardless of age, gender, sexuality, color, etc. Performing beyond that has just not been a priority for us these days.

But there is always one exception to the "Sunday evening rule."

And that is CROP Walk.

CROP Hunger Walk is a 5K Walk that raises awaresness and money for the hungry in our community. CROP Hunger Walks help to support the overall ministry of Church World Service, especially grassroots, hunger-fighting development efforts around the world. In addition, the Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk & Run returns 25% of the funds it raises to Greensboro Urban Ministry's Potter's House Community Kitchen.

Each year, we are honored to be asked to "kick off" the Greater Greensboro event and play our music for the thousands of participants. This year was no different. It was a beautiful fall day and such a blessing to play for such a giving and compassionate group of people from all faiths.

Thank you, Greensboro Urban Ministry and CROP Walk, for welcoming us once again and making us feel like rock stars. :-)

And just because they are totes presh....
