musings on a HIS MEN concert

One can only imagine Jesus looking down on the sanctuary of Second Christian Reformed Church in Grand Haven, Michigan, last night. The male chorus HIS MEN was presenting a benefit concert on behalf of HUMANITY FOR PRISONERS.

He would obviously be pleased with the beautiful harmonies floating heavenward.

I expect he would nod in appreciation as several of the singers explained to the audience how their lives have been changed by taking their music behind bars, singing songs of Jesus to prisoners.

I know he would recognize the stories told by Doug Tjapkes, the man who started HIS MEN on the path of prison ministry who now advocates for prisoners on a daily basis with HUMANITY FOR PRISONERS.

I think he whispered to all participants, when the program was finished, "Now you know what I was talking about."
