Friend Fest 2013: Close to 2,000 attend weekend’s performances

June 29, 2013

NAPPANEE — The two-day WFRN Friend Fest was the place to be in north-central Indiana over the weekend.
The main focus of the show was, of course, the music, and about 2,000 people turned out to listen to contemporary Christian artists, including Big Daddy Weave and Saturday’s headliner, TobyMac.
Beth McCracken and Irenia Rimsky were excited about Christian acts Carrollton and the Rhett Walker Band.
However, both women came to the festival to see “TobyMac and Big Daddy Weave,” they said, but wanted to watch all of the acts.
Along with TobyMac, there were 21 other performers.

In the Dailyness of Life: Trust Opal, but follow God for the long journey

June 29, 2013

“I’ve heard there’s some sort of a short-cut from here to Warsaw … ,” I said to my friend, Opal.
We’d just enjoyed great conversation over coffee and it was time for me to head home.
“I’d love to know what road to take. Do you know the way?”
“That’s Packerton Road!” she responded. “But it’s a hard one to describe. I’ll lead the way.”
I hem-hawed and tried to convince my friend (in her mid-80s) that I was pretty good with directions. Perhaps she might simply explain the best way. She would hear none of it. Together we left the restaurant as she offered a few more words of advice.
