lame mashup of Beech High School and Station Camp high school names.
but wow. what a night.
so… i live in a land where friday night lights is a way of life.
everyone comes to the high school football games, even if they don’t have kids playing, or even attending the school.
it’s part of the culture.
we have a couple of area rivals… the three big schools in our area are:
BEECH (our school), STATION CAMP, and HENDERSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL.
tomorrow Beech plays Station Camp.. and it’s going to be on ESPN. it’s a big deal.
tonite our church, Long Hollow, hosted a tailgate event honoring both schools, feeding the players and coaches from both teams, and sharing testimonies from both quarterbacks.
it’s one of the most beautiful things i’ve personally experienced.
imagine your rival high school, now imagine getting together before the game for a joint tailgate. they eat, they listen to music. they hang out.
now imagine that they go into a worship service together, will all their fans, and someone gets to share the love of Christ to all of you together… after you have just worshipped with music, singing together. it’s miraculous.
i’m a writer, but i’m almost at a loss for words to capture this.
what’s the most unlikely place you could find love? you might think among rivals… but it wasn’t tonite.
go wherever love is missing, and bring some.
