Another Day, Another Lesson

Thursday night, (recorded that afternoon, actually)  Jim Sonefeld was playing drums on  the David Letterman Show in New York City.

Less than twenty-four hours later, he was in Aiken, SC,  speaking to some folks at a local church about his tranistion from being a drunk, addict drummer to a sober believer in Jesus Christ. Interestingly enough, we both began our respective journeys  in 2004.

I was priviledged to attend.  Image 8

I needed to be there to hear his story. There were a lot of people who were invited who needed to hear it and many didn’t make it.

Their loss.

It was a great night, the short version characterized by this previously published YouTube video.

Jim was  great  and I had the opportunity to have a few words with him before he began.  I asked him about my favorite “Hootie” song, I Will Wait and he explained that he wrote it in Amsterdam after not being able to get the progression of  a song  by the Little River Band out of his head.

He shared God’s love this evening and I am so glad that I took the time to come meet him and hear his story in person.

We all have stories, don’t we?
