Still Singing

The Kellys were up late last night. We took a quick trip up I-25 to Greeley, Colorado for a vocal jazz concert by Take 6. These 10-time Grammy winners have been one of our favorite groups for nearly 20 years. Vocal jazz isn't as widely popular today as it was in the 80's and 90's when Bobby McFerrin was singing "Don't Worry, Be Happy", but we're glad to see Take 6 still going strong. And we're glad that they are still sharing the gospel during their concerts. The crowd last night was made up of mostly college and high school jazz students, and I'm guessing the majority of them were not followers of Jesus. The crowd responded favorably as they talked about our Lord. Take 6's concert last night reminded me of Colossians 3:16-17: "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
