Tropstock Cocoa Beach, Fla.

There is a great event taking place in Cocoa Beach, Florida the first week of Oct. (1-3)… the very first Tropstock (www.tropstock.com). The Parrot Island Band is currently scheduled to open the event on Friday at 1pm. While not playing near the “headliners”, it is pretty cool to be first up at the very first Tropstock. As years go by I can say that I opened for the likes of Peter Mayer and Nadirah Shakoor (Coral Reefers), in fact will have opened for everyone that plays over the weekend I imagine that as the years pass and my memory fades (wait, what was I talking about?), I will adjust the number of people that show up (“and we played for thousands!”:)…

One of the special features at this event will be Sunday morning Worship by the river, including several Coral Reefer Band members and several of the other event participants. I will be leading/moderating the worship service and I am even writing a worship song for the event… from the chorus, “River runs deep, river runs wide.. the Spirit moves down deep inside, Lord please use these gift of mine, and let your love flow through me”. I think God really does give each of us gifts and talents that we can use to encourage the world around us. Maybe our gift is music, but maybe words of encouragement. Some I know are great at serving others and others just “being there” and listening. Have you thought about your gift/talent and how it might be used to make the world a better place? I would love to hear how you are opening yourself up and letting God’s love flow through you…
