How Do You Define ECLECTIC?

Webster defines eclectic as, "selecting or choosing from various sources." Eclectic for Bay St. Louis and Lagniappe is something along the lines of the title of a Tom Wolfe novel, specifically, "The Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test." What do you get when you combine 150+ volunteers from one of America's largest churches, Willow Creek Chicago, Habitat for Humanity staff, 7 Recipient families of the Habitat blitz build, Most of the Staff from LPC, The parish hall of Our Lady of the Gulf (overlooking the Bay), A catered BBQ dinner from BB's, and a concert by the urban troubadour Mo Leverett of New Orleans? We call it God's daily Lagniappe (a little something extra). Mo drove over from NOLA to cerenade the group, directing our worship to the Father who delights to reveal Himself to His needy children. If you want to hear music and lyrics that fill your heart with the promises of God amidst the storms of life then check out this CD, "Of Orphans and Kings." Youthful groupies, Ruth and Sarah, with Mo. A local production of the Musical Cat's will begin in Biloxi. Ruth is auditioning and takes every oportunnity to reherse for anyone who will watch. Some say she over acts but I don't think that's true. She's just really into character. A special thank you from one of the Habitat homeowners. The not-so-youthful groupies, Kenley, Richard, Barb, Kelly, and Sarah. When the music began they pulled out their lighters and began shouting "Freebird." No one was hurt in the ensuing melee though bewildered Chicagoans were concerned when Richard began dancing in circles chanting, "I missed Woodstock. This is my Woodstock...My BayStock."
