      Ice Breaker – Favorite Concert


      Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

      (I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

      I recently started listening to the Starve the Doubts podcast with Jared Easley.  At the beginning of each episode, he asks guest to tell the audience about their favorite concert.  Today’s Ice Breaker is inspired by Jared Easley.

      Question:  What is your favorite concert that you attended?

      My Answer:  My kids actually had their winter concert at the high school last night.  Isaac played his trumpet in the band, and Hannah played the violin in the orchestra.  Any concert featuring my kids is my favorite.

      Besides this, I haven’t been to many concerts recently.  One of my favorite concert moments was the first band I heard at Creation ’97 in Mt. Union, PA.  Leanne and I went when Leanne was expecting our daughter.  After we set up our tent and our campsite, we walked over to the main stage area.  Big Tent Revival was on stage playing to the audience.  There was something so uplifting and powerful about this that I will remember, and this is why it is my favorite concert event.
