Tonight was band practice for our contemporary service worship leaders. Now, I know it's my day off but I really enjoy a lot of the music that we sing, and also the people that participate in contemporary worship leadership, and so I usually make sure I make it over for this.
There are two high school girls that sing in the band and who are also very active in many other aspects of churchlife. They came to Fire last night, and invited a friend who has little to no church experience. Now, I didn't know this from the beginning, and I was afraid that she might be familiar with like those Christian groups that reach out to high school students like FCA or Campus Crusade for Christ or one of those, who seem a lot more Charismatic and fundamental than both my theology and I are. I was afraid I wouldn't be "Christian" enough for her.
Well, the two high school girls (these are also the two that laughed their butts off at me when I ran headfirst into my microphone in Tales of a bumblinging intern
) showed up tonight for band practice, and we were chit-chatting about some stuff, and they told me that this new-girl loved our Bible study. They said she had never been to church before and was afraid that we wouldn't like her or be judgmental or many of those other things that church groups and church people are infamous for. But we joked and ate Little Debbie snack cakes, and I don't know if you would be able to find a more accepting group of kids. So hopefully she'll come back, and hopefully her experience will encourage some more of her more wary friends to come and check it out. That would be way cool.
In other news, today was a relatively lazy day. Slept in. Got my hairs cut. Drank some soda. Ate some junk food. Watched some tv. Didn't get any emergency calls. So really I don't have much to blog about. So I'm going to go back to watching some mindless tv. So, goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow!
