Jesus People Rocking Chuck Smith to Heaven
But it appears Chuck may be heading to heaven the old fashioned way, and one wonders if it is a bittersweet reminder to the aging Jesus People that they won't escape the fate of every man. So what's a church to do as Papa Chuck prepares to meet his maker? Rock that shit, of course.
Rev. Oden Fong of Poiema Christian Fellowship in Huntington Beach is leading a series of concerts to honor Chuck. Called "Jesus Lead On", the shows feature prominent acts, such as Fong's own Mustard Seed Faith, that kickstarted evangelism to hippies in the 1960s, as well as sparking the Christian music industry.
The series continues Saturday at 7 p.m. at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, and Sunday at 10 a.m. at Poeima Christian Fellowship in Huntington Beach.
