John Michael Talbot brings music, ministry, laughter to Pratt mission
‘Let the old self die, so the new self can rise up in Christ’
You may have heard John Michael Talbot’s music; you may have read his books; and you may even know that he’s the founder of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity, headquartered in Arkansas.
What you probably don’t know -- but which was made abundantly clear at the one-night mission at Sacred Heart Church in Pratt Nov. 17 -- is that he has a great sense of humor. Interspersed throughout his hauntingly beautiful music, between the prayers and the preaching, were laugh-out-loud commentaries – sometimes to share a message, and at others just to bring a smile to the filled church.
“No, the guys from ‘Duck Dynasty’ aren’t here,” he said with a smile as he first stood at the ambo with his guitar in hand.
