I’m pleased as punch to inform you, the Internet world, that well-known Christian musician Glen Kaiser will be performing at our very own HeBrews Coffee & Music this coming Saturday, February 18th at 7:30. This is an awesome kickstarter to HeBrews being a full-functioning coffee shop and outreach hub again. Our Tribe members Alex & Riley Fields are now heading this ministry up and we expect big things out of them with more events and concerts coming UP soon.
It also happens to be the Lord’s great timing bringing Mr. Kaiser to Iron River. You see, 30-something years ago, Glen and his wife Wendy, along with some other hippies in a bus (sound familiar), embarked on music ministry and communal living. The only Way for many Jesus Freak hippies of their time. What came of this was eventually the Resurrection Band, one of the first and greatest Jesus Rock bands of all-time…and also a thriving Christian community in Chicago called Jesus People USA. JPUSA, as it is also called, then started Cornerstone Music Festival which has been monumental in forming the major thrust and backbone of the Christian Music world over the last 25 years. My family and I were partakers in C-Stone when I was in high school, and I have been there around a dozen times since, now taking my little girls and my wife. I would have to say that Cornerstone gave a platform for music and musicians that were extremely integral in my spiritual upbringing and I am incredibly indebted to them for that.
So, with great expectancy and excitement, do we invite Glen to our little, out-of-the-way ministry in the U.P. of Michigan. And I muse at the plans and procedures of the Almighty in connecting us very formidably with two of the greatest Christian Communes of the last 50 years. The other would be the pastor and founder of Shiloh House and House of Miracles (John Higgins), taking us under his wing two years ago…and becoming a beloved mentor of mine.
As for this visit, we can’t wait to hear Glen Kaiser’s gifts in the art of the blues and also his heart as he shares and teaches on Sunday at our church. Surely, great things the Lord IS NOW DOING–presently! And great things He will continue to do as we pursue Him in obedience, further up and further in….
If you are in the area or can be this weekend, please come by and hear Glen and watch as God is quickly putting the pieces together, in our midst, for a blessed revival amongst His northern saints.
