Gardens, Toilets, and Concerts

Concert at Seibo Church in Ichikawa

The timing for this concert could not have been better. Two weeks before, the church was featured in a neighborhood “open garden” event with hundreds of people. Being the only public space involved, they were the only space that could offer coffee and public restrooms! (Is there a more practical blessing to your community than free use of a toilet?) Over 200 people visited the church. A sign-up sheet for my concert was made available, and so many people signed up for the concert that no one from the church was able to come! The church asked me to play a mini-concert in worship though so Christians could hear me too!
