part two

So, we have seen a little glimpse... the choir, Steve Hindalong, Derri Daugherty, Dan Michaels and a few others from time to time. They were just the beginning for me though.
I guess another influence over the past several years would have to have been Kawartha Lakes Bible School, (now College). This little institution introduced me to the idea that the Bible was really deep and really complicated and could be taken very seriously and even challenged without worrying if you were going to be disappointed at the end of the challenge. I remember reading AW Tozer and for the first time glimpsing something "mystical", something challenging my thinking and then finding out that he wasn't a "Brethren" guy. And he was good too! Unbelievable!! Of course, up to this point I'd been not too tolerant of anyone else, ignorance is not necessarily a good thing when you're going to try to shine the grace of God, but then again, up to about the age of 20 how many times do youstop and think about the idea of grace?? Which leads me to the next thought, post high school age is often a very intolerant age. I know I sure was intolerant, even as I was discovering the fact.
It was also at this point that I began to discover that I was really quite a sinner. My motives were bad and I began to discover it. But more about that later.

Oh wow, you let me blog now!! I remember that music you listened to, it banned your younger siblings from your room :) Glad it did you some good though.

That's right, Sabrina told me that annonymous postings weren't allowed, but I changed that!
Sorry about the music... I understand that it wasn't always easy to understand. It always made me feel justified when Mom told me she enjoyed Phil Keaggy over Twila Paris in concert though!!! :)

At this point I now know that Phil Keaggy was definitely better than Twila in Concert, too bad he just opened for her ;)

Hey... what's wrong with Twila Paris?! Bee, are you switching to the dark side too?!

I like them both Sabrina although I haven't heard Twila in years, I guess I'm a bad fan eh? Maybe Phil should play guitar for Gaithers or Third Day or Downhere then I'd like him more.(his singing isn't good at all and he's kind of weird)
