I have never been around someone more anointed than John*.
We were together in one of the most dangerous parts of Amsterdam, and he started talking to a guy on the street. Suddenly, the man dropped to his knees and began to repent.
Later, we went to Vondelpark in Amsterdam. This park is located in the center of the city and was where all the alternative people hung out. We sat together on a hill, and people started coming and sitting at his feet. It was like John had some magnetic presence. After the crowd gathered, he would just begin to talk to them about Jesus. I had never seen anything like that before.
All the regulars are finally back together again! With Luke bringing his diplomatic sensitive side to the conversation and Chad talking for days, what else do you need?
In this episode, they discuss the demise of U2, the effect that fatherlessness is having on our world and how apparently white christians don’t get care about morality.
Think that sounds crazy? Well that’s not all, in David’s random story he tells of the time his band was labeled as a Satanic group in the newspapers.
A good friend of mine spent years learning how to play 80’s guitar solos. The only problem was they were going out of fashion. It was bad timing. For whatever reason, he refused to change his style, and so for years, he was alone and frustrated because he couldn’t find a band that wanted him.
There is nothing sadder than getting stuck in a trend or music genre that is no longer relevant.
I’ve seen the same thing happen in ministry.
