Honestly, I love me some Francis Chan, but sometimes his stuff really kicks my butt. This is one of those times.
I love the story behind this song. Plus Skillet does amazing concerts.
Jimmy Needham was the concert on Friday Night at ATF. All the students liked this concert better than the other two. When he covered Stand By Me I have to say, well I immediately went and bought all his CDs.
Just some student messing around before the sessions as the arena was filled up. I had to cut and crop the video to keep one student off screen, not that we are embarrassed, but she needs to be more incognito for safety reasons. That is why some of the shots are kinda short of end quickly. The students had a great time waiting for things to get started and ended up on the big screen a LOT. More than the other groups that were much larger. Yeah the insanity wears off on them. I wish I could have got some footage during worship, they went all out for that too, but the lighting made it impossible.
They are going to be playing at Acquire the fire this weekend. I’m hoping to write about the event on Monday.
So yeah, I get to preach Sunday AM for Palm Sunday. I have a feeling that won’t happen again but I’m gonna take full advantage and play this as part of my sermon.
