ROCK FOR JUSTICE is one of the most significant moments ever for the Gathering. We are engaging with the creative community of Atlanta, bringing top-notch artists together:
Aaron Shust
Meghan Coffee
Evan McHugh
Erica Ambrose
Ryan Van Kirk
Trey Rosenkampff
Eryn McHugh
(and yours truly)
in a world-renowned music venue, Eddie's Attic,
for a purpose that goes beyond the walls of any one church, any one denomination, any one political group- to help LOOSE THE CHAINS OF INJUSTICE AND UNTIE THE CORDS OF THE YOKE AND SET THE OPPRESSED FREE!!! (Isaiah 58:6)
We are doing this for the good of those who will be saved, looking after those that THIS WORLD HAS ORPHANED (James 1:27)
and also for the PEACE and PROSPERITY of this city to which God has called us!
(Jer 29:7)

YOU have an opportunity to be a part of this, to raise awareness here in YOUR city, to chip in a few dollars (you will spend $20 for your entertainment some other way this month, I promise) to benefit the broken, abandoned, oppressed girls UNWILLINGLY caught in the web of commercial sexual exploitation, and to have an incredibly fun time listening to great music and developing a community of like-minded people!

I struggle to find words to express to you how much I want you to come to this, whoever you are, because it is THAT important to me. The best thing I can think to say is that YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS!!!

If you are struggling with whether or not to come, call me. Let's see if my enthusiasm rub doesn't rub off a little bit. I'm not even joking. I don't care if you don't know me. That's so worth it to me. Click the icon above and it will take you DIRECTLY to the page to buy a ticket. DO IT. DO IT. I can not wait to spend the evening rockin' the gates of Hell with y'all. Let's do this.

(ps if you try to use my number to stalk me, i will straight knock you out. boo ya)

a picture of the Father I longed to have, and of the Father I long to be

I've been told that the most powerful voice we ever hear comes from the lips of our fathers. The blessings, curses, or silence of our fathers has a way of echoing around in our souls for most of our lives. I've been a father for almost 12 years now. Nothing has grown me up more, broken me more deeply, thrilled me beyond words more than being a dad. It is a role that I cherish and rejoice in.
This video and song by Sawyer Brown paints a picture of the Dad I longed for and the Father I long to be. I hope you enjoy the image of a Father in the video as much as I do. It points me to my Heavenly Father who will love me and bless me, in spite of all of my failing.
