Chapel Yesterday was really good. Adam Davidson, the former worship arts pastor for SAFMC came to speak and was one of the funniest speakers we have had this year. He did an impersonation of Ron Kopicko that was spot on. Pastor Davidson is at least six foot 4 and probably twice the size and half the age of Ron, which made the impersonation that even funnier.
Some chapel speakers try too hard to make the students laugh but it was evident that Pastor Davidson is just a genuinely funny guy. I have noticed that usually those that actually understand the culture of SAU tend to be much funnier because they can poke fun at Spring Arbor culture and tradition like Adam did.
The message was based on learning/appreciating the love that God has for us. Often times we hear such negative messages on sin and it is important to understand that God loves us and accepts our flaws. His message tied in partially to what my Uncle Mark, Senior Pastor of SAFMC talked about on Sunday which I thought was also kind of cool.
Basically what I got out of the sermons is that if we can not ever appreciate or accept God’s love for us than we can not love others in the way that God loves us.
