"Blues means what milk does to a baby. Blues is what the spirit is to the minister. We sing the blues because our hearts have been hurt, our souls have been disturbed." -Mahalia Jackson
I want to invite you to a unique offering here at Wheatland. It's our 3rd year having a Blues Worship service at our Oswego campus on Thanksgiving Eve.
Pastor Bob refers to this event as a paradoxical evening of incredible blues music, scripture, testimony and reflection. I think it's appropriate that the day before we are to embellish on all that we're thankful for, we spend some time airing our grievances - a time of worship where we admit that not all is well and we're hurting.
It's said that in worship we sing each others' song. So even if you aren't hurting, come be close to those who might be. The service starts at 7 p.m.
