Happy New Year, everyone!!!!
I pray your holidays were restful (somehow!) and renewing. We’re just getting back into the swing here, but I’m excited for the year ahead…
It’s been really fun doing these “God Parties” with youth groups lately, and a fantastic student photographer captured a rather wild one a couple months back. Paul Bulger www.myspace.com/the_emo_kid77 took the pics and did an awesome job. If you’re unfamiliar with the party concept, check out my blog on the subject here; www.justinfox.com/2009/06/18/lets-party/. And now…here’s the party IN ACTION!
Some of the students hanging out before…
I take the stage with some tunes and interaction…worshiping through Adoration and Thanksgiving!
some more directing, teaching, engaging…
Oh yah, it’s time to break out the Uke!
After a time of worship through Petition and prayer with each other, challenging the students with real worship through OBEDIENCE, and an invitation to the REAL PARTY found in a life with Christ, it’s time again to celebrate God! Instruments are being passed around…
…not sure about the tamborine?
someone must be doing something really funny out there…
I finally get into the crowd and the dancing is in full swing!
…always get to throw out a few free CDs!
students always make up the best dances…
…like I said….
and now the stage is getting over-run! Pure, unbridled, joyful chaos ensues…
the craziest dancers are taking over…
…and leading the way!
ah, yes; the fist pump!
…now I’ve got the “band” assembled
…and they always really rock the cowbell!
someone else needed some cowbell time…
…and MORE cowbell!
How all great concerts are ended:
(thankful he didn’t actually smash that Uke!)
We hit “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang, and the party rolls into the streets!
So there’s a snapshot of a little bit of my life on the road these days – just a small part of what God is up to with us, but definitely fun to share. I love that God would use me like this! Thanks for being a part. We couldn’t do this without your support and encouragement. SEE YOU OUT ON THE ROAD!Read More
