A moment in life….

Just over a week now and the church conference is over…. Not that I am much of a conference person, but if you are doing sound, well then you have a no real choice but to sit through it hey.

But I wanted to share something with you guys and gals.

Over the conference weekend a real moment happened (maybe revealing my age more than anything).

When I was a new christian (whatever that may mean) I purchased my first worship album in 1999 Winds of Worship, Vol. 12: Live From London

It was a departure from music I had always been listening to up until then (mostly dance tracks before then). But on this album was a fellow South African Brenton Brown and Canadian singer/guitarist, Brian Doerksen. A few other artists that I followed for a while. Anyway it was a really eye opening album for me since I never knew christians did such music at the time.

Back to the present, so here I am doing sound at the conference and who is one of the artists appearing? Brian Doerksen. It was such a moment, from nearly 12 years ago when I was listening to an album to today (or that day) when I was behind the sound desk doing sound for the “real thing”.

Not too bad because last year I also met one of my favourite authors, Frank Viola. So I am having fun hey.

So I am not sure is that just means I am getting old and these things mean things to me, devotionally I mean. It was such moments for me. I really don’t know if it would mean much to any other person, but these people helped shape who I am today, so it was really strange to meet them in person when all of my experience of them was from a distance or through media only.

Has this happened to anyone?

It was just a strange feeling to be controlling the sound of the person who actually wrote the songs versus a normal worship service where our team sings the very songs.

Anyway just thought I would share this with you….

    It’s neat anytime you meet someone that you only know as a recording or a picture on TV. If you meet enough people in that way, it may make you wonder how celebrities can stand to shelter themselves as they do.

    In this case they shelter themselves well because they live in another country ha ha ha. But I also wonder sometimes how they manage to stay out of “normal” people’s way.
