Cornerstone Festival 2011- Rockin’!

Whew, what a Fest so far! And tonight is classic Jesus Rock night at Mainstage. Having great chats with old friends, and I can say they truly rock… hearing the line checks at the stage.

Been a great Fest indeed, sweet weather, nice people and a lot of crankin' bands, deep seminars and fellowship with sweet folks. Check out http://www.cornerstonefestival.com for daily coverage, lots of photos, video and audio online. Thanks for prayers… REZ set tonight, GKB tomorrow (Fri.) night, I do a Global Round Table session at 4pm tomorrow… then do the Blues Jam at Fat Calf/Sanctuary tent at 9pm Sat. to finish off. Just slummin'… HA!!!

I have several blogs ready to send up in the week after Cstone… all sorts of issues I think need consideration…

Enjoy your summer! -Glenn

UPDATE- Cornerstone Festival, Project 12, Glenn & Wendi

P12june2011

Thanks for all the kind words and prayers… we live on those prayers 🙂

Project 12 (JPUSA's Discipleship/Bible Intensive) had graduation Sun. during church services as GKB was out at Willow Creek, but we also had an evening reception which Wendi and I were able to attend. Brian and Ami shared scriptures and character qualities that each of the grads have… and then they had fellowship and treat time! WELL DONE grads!

Both my and Wendi's schedules at Cornerstone Festival are online at http://www.cornerstonefestival.com?? if you look through the program. She's preaching on David and Bathsheba, bringing her relationship, dating and sexuality seminars and doing the Rez Band rehearsal and set. I'm doing a (mostly solo) Cardboard Box (new cd) set, Rez rehearsal and set, GKB set and Sanctuary Stage blues jam as well as speaking Friday at 4pm in the Global Roundtable gathering. A FULL schedule, hope to see you there!

Please continue to pray for Wendi's arthritis and over-all strength through the Fest. Also please note we will be online very little in the next 2 weeks due to Fest duties as well as heavy web use by other Cstone staff… what I'm saying is I may not see and am not likely to respond to emails or Facebook and Twitter comments until later in June. Thanks for your understanding!

Have a great summer, and know I'll post more as I'm able.

Grace to ya! -Glenn

Willow- Amazing Weekend as Usual :)

BIG thanks to Bill, staff and sooo many kind folks with such kind words for us at Sat. and both Sun. gatherings at Willow Ck. GKB was blessed. And Devin Hester (Chicago Bears) gave a great interview each time as well. Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there, and I can tell you Willow's Dad Fest was huge and really sweet.

Whew. Time for a nap, then a couple songs and congrats for JPUSA's Project 12 grads tonight. And tomorrow I -hope- to sleeeeep innnnnnn!! Thanks for stopping by. -Glenn

Tapestry Show

What a great night with Aracely and friends at Tapestry! She also had several great friends guesting with harmonica, flute and vocals. She shared powerful truths about living with the reality of cancer. Her voice was strong and as usual she smiled a great deal- as did her great husband and kids.

I'm still shaky on a couple of the new songs but several seemed solid, and of course I mixed in a number of other tunes. Overall I was surprised at the good turnout and the kind response of the audience as I had some fairly strong things to say along with the intensity of the songs from Cardboard Box. An encouraging evening for me.

Tapestry is a great inner-city fellowship with leadership looking to interact in real ways with others throughout the area. They have a wonderful staff, very cool space and atmosphere with a high view of the arts. Sweet!

And now- Happy Father's Day to you Dads out there 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! -Glenn
