You must support this Kickstarter project.
Now. Go do that and then come back and read the rest.
I know, I know — I lack the congenial patter of a salesperson. I’m supposed to do a warm-up and ask you how your day has been, how’s the family, and talk about the weather. I really stink at that.
And all I really want to tell you is that this is an awesome project being spearheaded by one of my favorite artists, Andrew Peterson.
On Palm Sunday, I learned that the pastor of the church we attend in Cooperstown is an Andrew Peterson fan. That Sunday I had offered him a copy of “Behold the Lamb of God,” Andrew’s Christmas CD because it’s one of my favorites and I knew that I had a small stash of them on my dresser purchased for such opportunities.
The pastor laughed and said, “I give that CD to people all the time, too.” GMTA
His wife had told me that she hinted to the kids that AP’s newest CD, The Burning Edge of Dawn, would make a nice Christmas present for their father but none of them took the bait. I just so happened to have one of those on my dresser, too, purchased as a gift for someone but, long story short, I never ended up giving it.
So, when Easter Sunday arrived, I brought The Burning Edge of Dawn down and set it on the dining room table so I wouldn’t forget to bring it to the pastor.
Then I forgot it.
I remembered before we made it out of the driveway. Bud and the kids waited while I ran back in the house, grabbed the CD, and climbed back into the car.
When we got to the church, I was on a mission to find the pastor and give him the CD. Fortunately he was not hard to find; he was standing in the vestibule greeting people.
I rushed up to him and thrust the CD into his hand. “I brought this for you,” I said.
“And a Happy Easter to you, too,” he said.
I forget social graces a lot.
“Oh, yeah. Happy Easter,” I said, and then continued talking about the CD.
But I forgot to tell him about The Wingfeather Kickstarter. Sometimes, when I’m so excited about one thing, I forget other things.
So I’m telling him now.
Support Andrew’s latest project.
Note to William Kendall: Don’t you dare say that you have never heard of this artist. I KNOW I’ve mentioned him here before.
