Saturday found us at The Pavilion in Vantage with a throng of radical people of faith.
Led by artist and musician, James Nesbit, we entered into worship of the King of Kings in a fresh new way.
The sound while bold, was not prescribed or pre-written but on the spot released for this moment and this place.
I am coming to a new understanding of how your identify that your timing is in time with God’s timing. Stuff happens. Connections are made that could not have been made had you pre-planned for six months or six years!
Just like that music on Saturday. It was fresh and vibrant, for that moment, and for that place. It united so many peoples–First Nations people from around the state,
with Fijians, Hawaiians, Hispanics, Afro-Americans, Caucasians.
So what could I not make up? After three and a half hours of extravagant partying with each other, the Holy Spirt and the angels, we had food and fellowship. In the food line, I met another woman from across the state who had graduated from the same high school as me two years earlier. We knew the same people; we shared stories of friends and whatever became of so and so. Our conversation filled a gap in my past; it refreshed me; it answered questions. It presented the kind of insight that makes you ponder.
Granted this event at Vantage did bring people together from around Washington State. It is a meeting ground that is easy to access from all over the state, but what are the chances I would stand in the food line with someone who shared memories that went back to my early childhood? I knew her grandparents; she knew my parents.
You can’t make this stuff up! Was I in the right place at the right time? I think so. Maybe.
Of course you could say, well, she lives a couple hours from Vantage and you live a couple hours from Vantage in the other direction so it is entirely possible that your paths could cross. Perhaps.
But wait until my next post! You can’t make this stuff up, part 2!
And remember, process is so much about convergence. Time and again!
