I have to admit after the little dust up concerning the concert that will be happening at my church I had considered canceling. After all, I’d rather spend a Friday night at home with my wife and son, and I’m sure there will be plenty of people who feel that the building is the church and I’ll end up getting an earful. But after seeing the reaction Ingrid received from the band and its fans I realized that I couldn’t do it. Its obvious that Ingrid has made these guys feel extremely unloved, and canceling will only reinforce that idea. So in the name of loving my neighbor, which includes this band, and their fans (not to mention the kid organizing it all) the show must go on.
On an unrelated note I will point out that Ingrid has reported that the organizer is a member of my church. That is not true. While I realize she was given bad information and wasn’t maliciously doing so, this is another example of sloppy reporting that could have easily been corrected with a simple email to me.
