The Barbary Coast Dixieland Band was elected to the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2001 and rated among the finest entertainers in the Midwest. The band has played everywhere — from the Mississippi paddlewheel boats and the Minnesota State Fair, to Nagasaki, Japan. Over the past 30+ years they have regularly provided musical ministry in churches involving over 40 Sundays each year. Their mission is to "Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord" and their music provides an uplifting experience for both the musicians and the congregation.

Devotions

“He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8

Next month a group of Mount Olivet members will be partaking in a mission trip to Guatemala, a trip I have been on numerous times. For the last four years we have been in partnership with two small, rural, farming communities. In these towns, homes are made of boards and roofs pieced together in tin, floors that are packed dirt, and beds consisting of two wooden planks placed side by side. I remember the first time I traveled there, I walked into the village with more in my backpack than these people had in their homes. I turned to the missionary and asked her: “Do you ever feel guilty that you have so much, and they have so little? Her reply was, “No, I didn’t come here to live in poverty with them. I came to proclaim the Word of God and to help raise them up closer to our level.” It all started to click for me. Yes, we meet our brothers and sisters in Christ where they are, but then we do what we can as we join them arm-in-arm to lift them up to a more sustainable level of living. We share ourselves, our gifts, our resources, our time, and our attention. We aren’t called to sit in ashes and live as poor men and women, but rather we are called to action to serve the poor, the hungry, the thirsty, the meek, the persecuted – those very people who are blessed by the love of Jesus Christ.

Almighty God, you sustain us daily with a never-ending love found only in Jesus Christ. Help us to recognize the ways that we have been blessed, and to share with others the goodness that comes from walking in your ways. Amen. – PASTOR DREW BAKKEN
