     This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to Sonshine Festival
in Wilmar, Minnesota.
It is a Christian rock festival that features top Christian artists. On
Thursday night, when D.C. Talk was nearing the end of their performance,
everything became quiet. Soon after I could hear the bass line of "40"
kick in. I immediately let out a big "WooHoo!". Part of Psalm 40 was
read out loud during the music and then they dtarted singing a slightly
uptempo version. It was quite good, but it was too bad that they went
into another song without giving the crowd a chance to sing by themselves.
On Friday afternoon one of the many bands played "One" very well. That
night Audio Adrenaline's bassist belted out,"This song is not a rebel
song, this song is 'Some Kind of Zombie'."<one of their own songs>
     Did any other Wirelings attend?
