“Let’s get together, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!” Hayley Mills performed as twins Sharon and Susan in the O.G. Parent Trap. I also love the Lindsay Lohan version, but I grew up watching the hijinks of Hayley Mills. I found myself humming that tune Friday night as we set up the LifeSongs table display at Raising Cane’s River Center.
It’s been a while since I went to a major concert like Friday’s Always Only Jesus Tour with MercyMe, Taya and (my boi) Micah Tyler. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a crowd of thousands anywhere, actually … a consequence of the global pandemic and my own natural inclination towards solitude. But there I was, with my wife Elena, plus JoJo and Jennifer, excited to experience a worshipful night together!
Being together is sort of essential for human beings. Our God-in-three-persons designed us for relationships. Our own messed up hearts try to pull away from that, thinking we are supposed to be self-sufficient, but it is truly not the blueprint for our hearts. In fact, the Bible warns us to not draw into isolation in Hebrews 10:25, “[Don’t give] up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
So I guess I just want to say “thank you” to everyone who got together with us over this blitzkrieg of concerts (three major tours in just 5 days!?). There’s going to be a lot of other fun things – other concerts, gatherings and whatnot – and I am beyond excited that we’ll do it all TOGETHER!
