A Day In Gatlinburg




Last Friday, we were privileged to be a part of the Gatlinburg Gathering in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.  This annual event hosted by Abraham Productions offers a week of Gospel Music, preaching and worship at the Convention Center in downtown Gatlinburg.  Our bus rolled into this cozy town hemmed in by lush mountains in time to take part in the morning showcase.  Though we were only there one day, we had two awesome times of worship!    

In the morning, we joined folks like Ivan Parker, The Whisnants, Karen Peck & New River, Tribute, Talleys, Greater Vision and the live band for the Hymn Sing Showcase.  Gerald Wolfe led the morning, taking your favorite hymns from the Red Back Hymnal and mixing them with the voices on stage!  Towards the end of the service, Mark shared a brief sermon from 2 Chronicles 7:14 titled Calling on God.   

After the hymn sing, we had lunch at Mark’s favorite restaurant in Gatlinburg with Greater Vision and the Whisnants, bringing the number to a grand total of 18!  Kudos to Calhoun’s for setting several tables together to accommodate our bunch.  Great service!       

Evenings at the Gatlinburg Gathering are always our favorite because we get to share the stage with our friends and hear the Word preached from one of our favorite pastors.  On the second half, everyone gathered on stage where Gerald put together some interesting combinations!  Randy sang with Susan Whisnant, Rodney Griffin and Jeff Whisnant on “The Lighthouse” and Mark sang “What a Day That Will Be” with Chris Allman and Jeff Whisnant.  You can see all of this and more in our photo album from the Gatlinburg Gathering – HERE!

If you were not able to be with us to experience this blessed evening, you still have one more chance to make it happen this year!  Abraham Productions has expanded their events to include a Harvest Homecoming this fall.  We are honored to be a part of this inaugural weekend in Circleville, Ohio and we hope that you can come be with us on October 8th to help Abraham Productions kick off their new event!  For more info: click here. 

“If you decided not to speak to your spouse for the next five days and nothing they did could elicit a response from you; at the end of that five days you’re going to have to give some answers for your action, are you not?  Then why wouldn’t God be the same way?  Don’t you think He would say, ‘Where you been?  I’ve been right here, where have you been?  All of the sudden you have an emergency…really?’
But out of unconditional love and the abundance of grace, He doesn’t do that!  When we pray to God and we’ve not been close to Him lately, out of the abundance of His overwhelming grace to us, whatever we take to Him, He says, ‘Come here son.  Listen, you let Me have this,’ and He draws me close to Him.”
- Mark Trammell from Calling on God 

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” -  2 Chronicles 7:14
