Caedmon’s Call in Philly

If you’re in the Philly area and you like Caedmon’s Call. They’ll be playing this weekend for their Overdressed Tour at Philadelphia Biblical University (2/24) and Petra Christian Fellowship (2/23). They’re absolutely great live. I heart Derek Webb. Wedding Dress still stirs my soul.

‘Cause I am a whore I do confess
But I put you on just like a wedding dress
And I run down the aisle, I run down the aisle
I’m a prodigal with no way home
But I put you on just like a ring of gold
And I run down the aisle
I run down the aisle to you – Wedding Dress

Also exciting is the collaborative Ampersand EP release between husband-wife, Derek Webb and Sandra McCracken. So good.

The Calhoun School is where Victor been teaching for the past six years. They recently added a $15 million renovation, part of which included a state of the art remodeled performing arts center.

The show is open to the entire community, and everyone is welcome. All four shows will be recorded, and there will hopefully be enough high quality material to make a second trio CD, which will just be called “Live At Calhoun”.

[american born chinese pastor]
seeks to be that third place for those who are american born chinese [abc] in ministry.
here we may explore issues unique to the chinese church and doing ministry in that context
expand the intersection of asian american culture and christian faith
or simply expose what goes on in the mind of this abcpastor

this may be a bit ambitious or even naiive but i do hope that through the posts we can bring together different faith communities, passions for the advancement of the Gospel and the equipping of the body of Christ.

if you are an abc pastor or have any suggestions or would like to contribute to make this space evolve, just comment.
