After church, we went to lunch with friends, then home for a few hours before we left to go to a Rend Collective concert! Rachel, my mom and I have seen them four times - the first time with Chris Tomlin when they were his opening act.
Last night Tim, Sarah (who has been one other time) and my dad went with us, along with a friend.
Tim and I enjoy a concert very differently. The girls asked if he liked the concert, (they had sat with friends down on the ground level, so they could jump, and we sat in the balcony so we could see!) and he said that he really did.
I laughed and said, "You'd never know it. I was singing, clapping, raising my hands, and you were not." We all laughed, and he said, "Well, I was doing all that on the inside!" That is true! He is more reserved outwardly, its his nature. But he really did like them.
We both thought that the opener, and then the presentation for World Vision that happened before Rend Collective were playing on your emotions, but Rend Collective is not that way.
They also don't end the concert with cheers for themselves. They purposely plan an encore, do about three more of their own songs and then go into some quiet worship music with just guitar, and by the time the last song is done, they've quietly left the stage.
They're a group I'll pay to go worship with again and again!
