Show Tonight in Fort Worth

Haven’t blogged the past few days, mostly because of being very busy but also from being somewhat sick. It’s just allergies.

Allergies get me pretty bad once or twice each Spring, and this is one of those weeks. What they get in me most of the time is my throat….they seize up my throat so I can’t talk and can’t sing.

I’m somewhat better today, and am going to work real hard all day to get even better by nightfall.

All this is to say, I have a show tonight in Fort Worth, and despite how bad it’s been this week, I am planning to make it.

So, today, please send your prayers, happy thoughts, and magic tonic elixir recipes my way.

And here’s the show info:

March 10, 2006, 8 pm
Artistic Blends Cafe, Fort Worth
5298 Trail Lake Drive
Fort Worth, TX 76133
(817) 292-4744
(The old Wedgewood Theater…)

I’ll be playing the “Coffeehouse stage. Artistic Blends is a wonderful mixture of entertainment, and the arts wrapped in a classic gourmet coffeehouse. The elegant décor and fine art, theater and entertainment make Artistic Blends a place like nowhere else. Come and see for yourself! Get a map.

Previously, he was pastor at Northaven UMC in Dallas for seventeen years. Eric loves to write on topics of spirituality, social justice, music/art and politics. The entries on this blog reflect that diversity of interests. His passion for social justice goes beyond mere words. He’s been arrested at the White House, defending immigrants and “The Dreamers,” and he’s officiated at same sex weddings in his churches, in defiance of what some believe is Methodist teaching. Eric is an avid blogger and published author, and 2017 recipient of the prestigeous Kuchling Humanitarian Award from Dallas’ Black Tie Dinner. (Human Rights Campaign) Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He’s a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named “best judge” by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County, and is currently the longest service district judge in that district. She was re-elected for a fourth term in 2018. They have the world’s best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy.
