For the past 2 years, I've been in charge of the music rotation for the VBS at FBC Fort Mill. When you're leading the music team or even just a part of the team, you get to spend some time with a man named Jeff Slaughter. Jeff is the guy who writes all the VBS music for Lifeway. He's also the guy who does the VBS music motions demonstrations. To watch these demonstrations is almost comical because he gets so into what he's doing! Every year he seems to become more animated. So tonight, I was watching the demonstration for the Game Day Central Theme Song that I have to teach to a group of kids in the morning and I thought about the 'good old days.' I thought about all the nights we got together or even attempted to get together in the big room at the end of the hall upstairs to go over our moves; Richard Hilton and Jan Maness demonstrating their rap star abilities; the crew sporting our toboggans or caps or tukes or whatever you want to call them as we did that rap song for Arctic Edge, where adventure meets courage (whisper it with me); how about John Jarrett making fun of me night after night for the way I made the kids say "Deuteronomy 5:13" or whatever the verse was. Jennifer Wilson, if you read this, I hope you're enjoying the torch that was passed onto you! I honestly thought I was retiring and taking a year off, but they needed a music leader in El Paso - Imagine It! So Richard, Cindy, Amanda, Jennifer, Teresa, Jan, Susan, and whoever I'm forgetting, I'll be chanting "Run Run Run the Race, Keep Keep Keep the Pace, Run the Race, Keep the Pace, Keep your eyes on Jesus" in YOUR honor this year! I miss you guys and hope you have a good time next week doing whatever you're doing in the BIG game! I have another few weeks before the BIG game so every time I practice or listen to these songs, know you're on my mind!
