It's a good weekend to take in a little extra at Lakewood. For one, it's the final weekend Joel's preaching before heading overseas. The touring version will be in the UK for the next couple of weeks & we'll be treated to Marcos Witt and Israel Houghton preaching on weekends during that time.
Beyond that, Carrie Hodge graces the stage once again. I don't think I'm the only one suggesting she outdoes herself with a great rendition of Michael W. Smith's "Healing Rain." But last night was good all the way around and I just love those praise & worship moments where there's something to take from just about every song, every musician, every singer and every moment.
It also helps that I need to be at church for something else between services. Good timing, that.
