ORIGINAL DATE OF THIS ASR EVENT WAS POSTED 3.17-20 2016:
So. I’m back from SXSW2016! It was an experience to remember! I have a whole new set of friends with amazing stories, new music to rock on the radio and renewed faith that God is STILL in control…in the coming days I’ll be sharing highlights of some of the sights and sounds from one of the most amazing music,film and interactive festivals in the nation! Big Ups Austin, Texas … in the meantime, Connect with me on this morning’s All Saints Radio on 98.5 The Beat! It’s #MusicWithAHigherCalling!
My calling doesn’t live or die by societal acceptance. I try my best to keep in mind that Jesus healed the sick, helped the poor, protected children and widows, educated and fed the masses, walked on water and EVEN brought the dead back to life. After all that, he was literally nailed to two planks of wood and left to suffocate to death. So, if he wasn’t afraid of the consequences of being who he was in the society he lived in, what do I have to fear? Lesson: The challenge of calling oneself a follower of Christ is to ACTUALLY BE ONE. #theNewApostles #SXSW2016
