Happy Thursday! We’re gonna take a bit of a break from sessions today and sneak into a review of an awesome Shreveport event! I hope this post finds you enjoying a week of good work, creativity, and inspired living. : )
You may or may not know about a ministry I’m involved in called the The Yellow House of Highland (the YH) which is a creative community of young adults that seeks to be a home and a hub for inviting and leading young adults into intentional and creative missional living. It’s a mouthful, but that’s the heart of it. So, you may be asking “What is your focus?” Our focus is growing in biblical community within The YH, our Highland neighborhood and the Greater City of Shreveport. That desire is steeped in creativity, both in artistic expression through visual arts, music and media, and in creative problem-solving and relationship-building. If you wanna know more, I’d encourage you to check out the website (click the link above) as well as stop by sometime! We’re located at 410 Dalzell, at the corner of Gilbert and Dalzell in a, you guessed it, big yellow house. One shameless plug–we’re having a community meal this Sunday evening, Oct. 2 @ 7pm! It’d be the perfect time to come check it out! (and eat some good spaghetti) : ) Here’s some pictures to get you acquainted with the space.
So last weekend we at the YH had the distinct pleasure of having David Bazan in our very own living room. We found out a few months back that we would officially be on his living room tour schedule (ahhh, living room shows…a trend in music these days that I’m a HUGE fan of.) Annnd, once we spread the news a little bit, we sold out the show (50 tickets) within just a few days through their online site. This gave us two distinct opportunities: to have an awesome concert with a very talented artist, as well as to invite some folks into our house that haven’t heard of the ministry or what we’re about. Our house quickly filled with new faces, and as the concert began, we realized what a very talented, passionate, and gracious man that David was. He told us a lot of his story, the journey and battle of his faith, and was completely honest about his struggle for Truth. He is a bold man to say the least, and we were grateful to have him in our home. Oh, and he’s an absolute brilliant musician. You should check him out.
So, naturally, I snapped a few moments throughout the evening and thought I should share. Hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave comments, like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, and check out my website. C’mon. You know you want to. : ) -C
