Man oh man, What a memorial day weekend! I love the feeling of getting to re-coop after a long weekend. I ended up sleeping-in till three this last Monday because I was so tired from all that went on Friday-Sunday! I had a couple events I was doing music at on Sunday, one at Kentwood Community Church and one in Lansing. I also got to talk with few individuals about what I'm doing at the mission with the youth program which was good. Saturday night I was out at the Edge Urban Fellowship (the hip-hop church in Grand Rapids I'm a part of) with one of the guys from the mission. That particular night of worship was a really special and encouraging blessing to me. I've actually been able to take a couple guys from the mission out there with me on Saturday nights. The Edge has a pretty unique environment compared to most churches you may have been to, there are a lot of really hardcore Jesus followers there, but yet it doesn't feel all "churchy" if you will, just some very raw and genuine people seeking to please God in their neighborhood and live out the Truth of Christ's love unashamedly without compromise. Its been a really cool way to build some relationships with the guys, spend some time in worship, hearing some solid truths form God's word, and getting a chance to talk some about life and God and what the connection between the two of them is looking like in our day to day lives. Below is a promo video for the Edge, check it out! This place has become both my church family and an outreach ministry that has been very cool to be a part of.
