Full Hearts

Last Saturday night our church, Hope Chapel, organized a benefit concert for Watts with Andrew Peterson. Hannah and I have been listening to his music and seeing him play for almost 14 years now. Seeing the room filled to the brim with our community (from near and far) was so encouraging. Being reminded of the hope of the Gospel through story and song was a balm for weary hearts. I can't imagine a more meaningful evening.

A personal highlight for me was having Andrew sing "The Silence of God", one of my favorite songs in the world. I had actually written a little about it here a few months ago ( I wish we had video of the introduction and performance of the song, it was beautiful. You can download the song from itunes though (and you should!).

THANK YOU to the team who organized the concert: Hannah and I didn't do anything, and that in itself was a gift!

THANK YOU to all of you who came to the concert or made contributions to make it possible: it was really a tangible reminder that we are not alone.

THANK YOU to Andrew Peterson for your music and heart and for bringing so much honesty and vulnerability to the stories and songs. We were so encouraged.

Our friend Jason made a video telling our story, to be shown at the concert. You can view it by clicking on this image:
