Creekside Diaries, volume one:Â Sunday, October 28, 2018
By Kristen Stanton
The air is buzzing with excitement here in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Cars and buses are pulling into the Smoky Mountain Convention Center ready for a big week here at the Creekside Gospel Music Convention.Â
People are greeting each other with hugs or shouts from across the parking lot and itâ€™s clear that â€œWe Are Familyâ€ is more than just a slogan â€“ itâ€™s a feeling. Â
Now in its seventh year, this event has taken on an identity different from anything else in the industry. Â Â Â
Packed full of singing and special events, this year kicked off with a bang with Quartet Night. The Pine Ridge Boys, The Chordsmen, and Common Bond Quartet sang to a standing room only audience that left the crowd excited for the Monday night concert. The capacity crowd filed in when the doors opened at 6:30 p.m. and stayed until the last note was sung.
The spark is in the air â€“ and if youâ€™re here, you can feel it. The pastor at church this morning reminded us that Godâ€™s presence changes everything. The three quartets that sang tonight certainly ushered in the presence of God.
Is revival starting? Â Maybe. I canâ€™t wait to find out!
