On Friday, I went to the first concert I have been to in a long time. It was really awesome. My ears are still ringing. That part I could do without.
Winter Jam is a collection of different Christian bands who tour together and spread the message of hope in Jesus. Newsong, Barlow Girl, Group 1 Crew, Skillet, and Mercy Me were the main groups. It was general admission so we got there early enough to get really good seats. There were about 8,000 people there and over 1,100 first time decisions to follow Christ.
Mercy Me was definitely my favorite! They are probably best known for their song, "I Can Only Imagine". I'm so glad I went, but I can tell I'm not as tolerant as I used to be. I wanted to say "Turn down that music!" I don't think anyone would have heard me. I also can't jump up and down like the students can. Three kids have done a number on my bladder control. Overall it was a wonderful night.
