MercyMe on Maui!! Who Could Imagine?!
On Maui, we have a small town inferiority complex. Everything good goes to Honolulu where the paying crowds are, but not to po-dunk little Maui (despite the fact that Maui has the finest concert hall we've ever been in!). So when something big comes to town we obediently buy our plane tickets, book our hotel rooms, and rent our cars--- on Oahu. But not THIS time! MercyMe generously added our concert hall to their itinerary and they packed out the MACC with the Maui Faithful for an exceedingly marvelous concert.
Thanks to Lu's hustle to the box office on the first morning tickets were available, we got front row seats! It was everything and more than we could hope for--beautiful sound, inspiring lyrics, and moments of holy awe.
