So we bought tickets the night before (procrastinators) and went out on a school night.
Rend Collective was fantastic. Seriously great. And they played some of my favorite songs right off the bat, so now they have my heart forever.
There was a guy that opened for Rend Collective, and his name was Jon Guerra. I had never heard him before, but really fell in love with his music.
I imagine that there's pressure being the opening act for a band. You're the little guy, playing first, and you know the crowd paid for tickets to see the other band. Basically. But as he sang, his music ministered to my soul. Deeply. And if I met him (and his lovely wife that sang with him) I would tell them that being the opening-act...well, it's a big deal. It impacts. God uses the big guys. And the little guys.
I'm always a fan of the little guys. The underdogs. The less known. It might be why I love my church church so much.
One of my favorite songs he sang was called Stained Glass. And so I have to share.
