Kairos 27 MICC

Posted by stevengaub on Sunday, May 2, 2010

Just got home from Kairos at MICC. Had a wonderful time playing and singing with my friends and the inmates, inside helpers and Participates. Hours of songs and all. This was our first Kairos after a new prison policy of no outside food and cookies. The inmates, that were there, wanted the spiritual feeding and not the home cooked food. We had the same meals as the general population and the whole outside volunteer team agreed; the mystery meat, served 20 different stiles, with rice and beans would get very boring. Our prison system, in Washington State, is in the penal phase and not the reforming cycle. The closing witnesses were outstanding and no time was spent on bragging about how good the food. They only told how the love and care of the team taught about God's Love. One Muslim testified that he was changed. All for the good as he had been rather socially ugly in his younger years.


Wonderful close harmony on some old gospel hymns by my 5 string banjo tenor buddy and my self as bass singer and player. A second tenor chimed in some. Towards the end I drug out my Octave mandolin and brought some harmony lines to the banjo and 2 guitar instrumentalists ( I have a long ways to go before I could be considered passing on that instrument, heavy heavy strings :{ ). Too bad we could not convert one of the guitars to bass; then we would have a more interesting quartet. It is hard to understand how God allows me to have so much fun crammed into 3 + long, long days.


May all your playing be inspiring and uplifting. May all your chords and tunes reflect the perfect love of God, Abba, His Son our brother and the Joy of the Holy Spirit.
