With all hands on deck to open "Not Just Another Love Story," we are postponing this week's blog. We'll continue the "That'll Preach" series next week, with Chapter 4 coming out on Wednesday, May 3.
Opening a large-scale, Broadway-style dinner show at NarroWay is no small feat! There's a set to change, lighting to program, sound cues to edit, video to render... not to mention anything about the hours of rehearsal. While we continue perfecting the show, make sure to check out the preview.
Set in the days of World War II and based on the biblical story of Hosea, this incredible show is packed with historical content, fabulous music and a captivating story line. But don't take our word for it! Make plans now to get to the NarroWay Theatre before September 30 and see for yourself!
Find out more about the show on our website.
When I was 13, some kids introduced me to a killer... no! I mean it, a real killer – cigarettes. When you’re 13 you don’t think about COPD, lung cancer, heart attacks, the cumulative cost. You just think: “Wow, this is something only adults are allowed to do so it will make me look cool to all these friends.”

Implementing my best abilities at hiding the habit, my parents found out. But that wasn’t the clincher. My GRANNY found out.
“Nobody wants to play rhythm guitar behind Jesus. Everybody wants to be the lead singer in the band.” The Oak Ridge Boys made this song famous in 1983 and it is one of my most favorite sayings.
That phrase says it all – very few people desire to be in the background doing the work with no glory.
Yet, in the Jesus Book of Success: Top Ten list of the qualifications of a successful person, servanthood ranks #1.
Mark 9:35, “ And he (Jesus) sat down and called the twelve. And he (Jesus) said to them, ‘If anyone would be FIRST, he must be last and servant of all.’”
Wow! That’s just what all of us wanted to hear! Apparently, to be successful in God’s eyes, we better understand what it means to “play rhythm guitar behind Jesus.”
