Gateway Coffee House

You are probably getting a good laugh out of my blogging, this is new for me now so I'm having fun, and I am really excited to be able to share the latest news with all of you AWESOME Latterrain fans. As always, thank you for your continued support and prayers as we are preparing to see more great moves of God in the Maritimes and world wide. We just recently played at Gateway coffee house in Sackville on Oct 15th.It is always fun to get together with all of our musician friends and chill with some sweet acoustic sets. Everybody always has something unique to offer at this event and we encourage you all to check it out.

Thanks everybody, and remember you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God

Latterrain Mobile

Hey everybody this is Craig, thought you would all want to know that we are selling the Latterrain mobile. It is a sad occasion of course but we have decided to explore some other avenues for future transportation. Just this afternoon we cleaned her up and she looks as good as new. Matt and I took some pics so you can see how fancy it looks. I have to say that febreeze is a fantastic product and handy wipes do work great for cleaning the inside of the window frames.

God Bless

Men's Retreat

This weekend is gonna be great. Few of us are going to be leading worship at a men's retreat at camp evangeline. Looking forward to a great time in worship together with everyone attending.

On a side note, I had the chance to see Delirious? final show in London on Blue Ray...let's just say I am upset they called it quits. Why?! Because D? are pretty much one of the best bands in Christian music. Amazing live show. Will see what lies ahead.

Well...we will keep it short! Keep eyes on Christ!

Hurricane Earl & Atlantic Worship Weekend

Hey everyone,

We're in the midst of a hurricane named Earl the Pearl. We're watching trees break and wind blow. Not the best for an outdoor show! Good thing we're not. Prayers and thoughts to everyone who has power outages, those who are traveling, working, and those with damaged property and those hurt by this weather. We are keeping ourselves updated and continue to pray for each one.

On a side note, we will be posting a blog in the next little bit about The Atlantic Worship Weekend. What a great weekend!

Keep safe and keep dry! Remember, if anyone needs prayer or anything at all, send us a line!

Recommended listening

Posted by Matt

“Future of Forestry” has just released the third and final EP in the “Travel” series and is now in constant rotation on my iPod. The songwriting and arrangements are brilliant! I can honestly say the only aspect of this recording that I don’t like is that it is too short… Check out the following links:

Future of Forestry: Travel
Following a recent journey through both painful and beautiful life changes, artist Eric Owyoung has arrived at this wisdom: “Listen to your heart, and take with you what lasts forever.” That deep and bright message defines “Traveler’s Song,” a soaring tune he wrote to rise above the transient mess of human circumstance. And it’s the same piece that launches the Travel series, a conceptual trio of poetic and elemental records from his ethereal rock band Future of Forestry.

Three sets with six tracks each, and released just months apart; Travel I, Travel II, and Travel III use the carriers of air, sea, and land respectively to explore our temporary struggles and eternal hopes, ultimately discovering what matters most.

Amazing! Have a listen – you won’t be disappointed!

Crazy Love

Posted by Josiah on July 11th, 2010

Hey all! Welcome to the new LatterRain website. Things have been quite busy for all of us. Matt and his wife Suzanne had their first child March of last year, Josh got engaged to Amanda, Aaron busy with his church, family and his position with the navy, Craig and his wife Kim leading youth at AHF Church and growing vegetables in their spare time, lastly myself...recently got married May 22 to Krista.

We hope you take time to read our blog as we plan to update with encouragment, challenges, music to check out, and further news about us and what God is doing in us and through us as a band.

Francis Chan's "Crazy Love" book has created all sorts of attention and anyone who has read it knows why. My wife and I began reading this book a couple weeks ago and it has been a challenging and exciting journey. Chan gets down to the nitty-gritty biblical truths of what it means to be a Christian and what it means to have a right standing relationship with the Lord. It challenges you to search your soul and answer some deep, difficult questions about your true love for the Lord. Here are a few excerpts from the book that we found to be very powerful.

"The critical question for our generation--- for every generation, is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?

How many of you will read those words and say, "You know, I just might be okay with that"? If you are deeply in love with God, you know you would never be satisfied in a heaven without Christ.

"I wrote this book because much of our talk doesn't match our lives. We say things like, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," and "Trust in the Lord with all your heart," Then we live and plan like we don't believe God even exists. We try to set our lives up so everything will be fine even if God doesn't come through. But true faith means holding nothing back. It means putting every hope in God's fidelity to his promises."

"A friend of mine once said that Christians are like manure: spread them out and they help everything grow better, but keep them in one big pile and they stink horribly. Which are you? The kind that reeks, around which people walk a wide swath? Or the kind that trusts God enough to let him spread you out--whether that menas going outside your normal group of Christian friends, inceasing your material giving, or using your time to serve others."

"Most of us use "I'm waiting for God to reveal his calling on my life" as a means of avoiding action. Did you hear God calling you to sit in front of the television yesterday? Or to go on your last vacation? Or exercise this morning? Probably not, but you still did it. The point isn't that vacations or exercise are wrong, but that we are quick to rationalize our entertainment and priorities yet are slow to commit to serving God."
