I remember meeting him

I remember meeting Larry Norman in 1997 about midnight in downtown Springfield, MO.  He was in town for a concert.  My girlfriend (now wife of 10 years) and I recognized him right off the bat.  He was being prayed for and I remember seeing him drop to his knees on the sidewalk.  He was hanging out at a Christian club.  I bought a couple tickets to the concert while I was there.  I asked him if he'd play "Srong Love, Strange Peace" at the show.  We talked for a while and I was just amazed the way I got to meet someone who I respected so much.  I was walking on air.

At the show it was just awe inspiring.  He sounded just as strong as on the original recordings.  I hung on his every word and note.  And guess what, he sat at the piano and sang "Srong Love, Strange Peace". 

Thank you Jesus for Larry Norman.  We will see him again.......................
