If you saw us play, you may have heard Seth or the rest of the band talking about what it means to know and follow Jesus.
If you’d like to know more about who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him, here are some websites with more info:

If you didn’t catch all of it, or want to read it in full, the story Seth shared is reprinted below:
The words of that song we just sang (“Zombie”, by the Cranberries) are still as true today as they were 23 years ago. There is still war and fighting. And children are still losing their lives in the crossfire. There is a pattern in this world that we don’t seem to be able to stop. But, I don’t think that the problem is just “out there”, the problem is inside us, too. The world is broken because it is full of broken people.
That brokenness hit very close to home for me; my father grew up in a broken and crazy family. In America sometimes we say “my family is crazy” and we mean it is fun and loud. But my dad’s family was actually mentally ill.He had a bunch of uncles who were alcoholics, 3 close relatives who commited suicide. He had an uncle who tried to shoot his wife in the heart but missed because he didn’t know where it was, and just shot her in the chest. He took her to the hospital, and they patched her up, and she went home with him.
My dad’s mom was an alcoholic and suffered from paranoid schizophrenia. She beat my dad and his little brother with anything she could find around the house. And when she would start to lose it and begin throwing things and getting violent, his father would just leave. My dad told me, “Your grandfather had to know what was going to happen. He could have stopped it… but he didn’t.”
On top of all that, my dad never heard his parents say “I LOVE YOU”. He was a kid caught in the crossfire. Stuck inside broken patterns like abuse, addiction, and neglect. He was determined that his life was going to be different. But he didn’t know how to be different; those patterns were all he knew. But he tried – he set goals, he got a scholarship to play basketball in college – he was actually the first one in his family to go to college. He became a successful high school coach and teacher, bought a sports car, took vacations, dated lots of women…but even after he achieved his goals, he still felt unsatisfied. The girls he dated were unfaithful, his friends were only around for the good times.
He could see himself ending up just like the rest his family, just maybe a little smarter. Everything he did to get away was actually drawing him back into the same patterns all over again. He got heavily into alcohol, which is how he would “self-medicate”. But he wasn’t finding the real answer. He reached his goals but they were empty.
We believe in this band that there is hope for this world, and for all of us broken people in the world. We believe that because there is a God who loves us and wants us to know him. We have all experienced that love.
For my dad, the change came when he met my mom. Through her, he met other Christians who lived life differently. My dad was amazed! They answered his hard questions. They introduced him to a God who truly loved him, not for what he could do, but for who he was. For a guy who had never heard his parent say that they loved him, that was big.
My dad’s father had slipped out the door when things got hard with my dad’s mom, when she started throwing things and beating him. But God this Heavenly father stayed and showed his love for him by standing up for him and taking the hits for him. The bible says it this way, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him should not die but have eternal life.”
You see, the broken patterns that surrounded my dad and all of us are something God hates more than we do. The wrong things we do bring death and separate us from God and from each other. But God doesn’t want us to die, he wants us to live. Not just in heaven but now.
That is why God sent his son Jesus. Jesus lived a perfect life so we could get credit for it. Jesus died an ugly death on a cross to pay the “price of death” for the evil things we have done and that have been done to us. Jesus rose from the dead, so we could have a new life now and eternal with God in heaven later. The bible puts it this way, “The payment we earn for the evil we have done is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our lord.”
God changed the pattern in my Dad’s family. Because he experienced the love of God, my dad was able to love me, and to start a new pattern. Dad used to tell us this at night before he put us to bed – he would say, “I love you. You know what, Seth? If God lined up all the 8 year old boys in the whole world and I could only pick one to be my own special son, do you know who I would pick? I would pick you.”
I want you to know, that is how the God of the universe feels about you. He sees you. He knows you and whatever struggles you have. And he loves you. You don’t have to be a superhero, you don’t have to fix your problems, he will do that, you just need to come to him.
This new life with God is a free gift. You can’t earn it, but you can ask Him for it.
