  1. What type of law enforcement will Eric do? Heard he will go back to the local police department!

  2. I think it is truly said that “talent” won’t be involved in gospel music…but he has to answer God’s call for his life and family.
    God Bless You, Eric!

  3. “truly said that ‘talent’ won’t be involved in gospel music”

    Who said that talent won’t be involved in Gospel music? 😮

  4. I meant to say…

    truly sad…not said.

    Sorry.

  5. Let me try it again.

    I think it is truly sad that this “talent” won’t be involved in gospel music…but he has to answer God’s call for his life and family.
    God Bless You, Eric!

  6. Yes, Eric will be working as a uniformed officer on the Gadsden Police Department.

  7. Paul – oh, okay! I get it this time!

    I was trying to parse that phrase, and try as I might, it just wasn’t making sense.

  8. Oh, that was the Thursday night concert at Steve Hurst School of Music! I attended that for this first time this year, and it was amazing! I learned so much, and it was awesome to be taught by professionals and see concerts by awesome artists every night! This concert was awesome, especially since it was Mark’s 50th birthday! They had a great time teasing him about that.
