SGN Scoops June Issue

The June issue of SGN Scoops is here!  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to announce that this issue begins a new chapter in my life that I’m so excited about, Rob Patz has invited me to become a staff writer with a monthly column!  The theme is called “Event Planner” and will…

Spoiled and Spot On

Spoiled.  That’s a good word to describe oneself after a week of walking the beach by day and hearing Gospel Singing by night.  Spoiled?…most definitely.  It’s something I won’t deny happening to me while in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for Singing in the Sun.  There’s something rejuvenating in being near God’s creation, especially in that…

God Hath Met With Us

The band played as I and a stream of other people walked from the exhibit hall to the main auditorium.  Four thousand people would be in that room for Friday night’s concert at Singing in the Sun.  Right then, the voices of those thousands were singing a medley of both old and new songs lead…

Something Different

The sun was past its zenith, the tide was out and the waves reached out to touch our feet as they sank in the sand while we walked along the shore.  To the pier and back; that’s as far as we would go.  Stretched out on beach towels and chairs were people trying to soak…

Singing in the Sun – part 2

On Friday night, we had a great line up at Singing in the Sun; the Mark Trammell Quartet, Ivan Parker, the Talley’s, the Pfeifers and the Booth Brothers – it was awesome!  After some congregational singing, Ray Flynn opened the night in prayer and then shared how 73 people came to know the Lord that…

Singing in the Sun!

I think it’s pretty safe to say that not every Gospel Sing you attend has a whale painted on the side of the building…but the Myrtle Beach Convention Center does!  If you’re in Myrtle Beach, SC in mid-April, you can walk right in that convention center and enjoy Singing in the Sun.  This five day…

May – Make a Difference!

The theme for May can be wrapped up in one word – grow! We all know the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, rain (water source) helps flowers to grow, and life can sure pour down some thundershowers on our lives. Maybe its doing so now in yours, so why don’t we use that…
