I just have to say mission accomplished. I brought an unchurched friend tonight. I wasn’t sure of what to expect and I didn’t tell her anything other than lets have a girls night out at a jazz club. Throughout the evening she was brought to tears and could only describe the movement of the Spirit as, “I don’t know why I kept wanting to cry but I just felt so moved by the message and the music.” She went on to say that she felt like she had actually been in church. She is anxious to read your book and wants to come back next month. Mission Accomplished!

Just ordered the book, really looking forward to it! We’d love to attend, but the commute from DC would be a bit of a bear… any chance of having future events streamed live online?

Thanks for ordering FTG…perhaps we could bring the show on the road and come to DC! Live streaming? I’ll find out if that is a viable option…in the mean time let’s keep connecting here.
Stay in the groove,

Just from the comments and observations I was able to receive, I would estimate that as much as a third of the crowd was made up of totally “unchurched” folks. I use quotations because, by any measure, that WAS church. In fact, I would not be surprised at all if this worldwide “jazz theology” community became a church family of sorts. Maybe it already is. Get George Barna on the phone; this is a revolution!
