On Saturday August 7th 2007, at Gage Park Baptist Church in Topeka I got to catch up with my old friend Eric Hauck and his wife Brittney. I first met Eric when he was playing in Rich Mullins' band, and later in Mitch McVicker's band. He and Britt went on to share their own ministry in their own band, Beggarman. While we've kept in touch, I had not seen Eric since he and Britt performed with Michael Aukofer's Appalachian Christmas Quartet in 2002 (see that scrapbook here). Since then they have settled down from constant travel and are raising their family and leading worship with this group at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati OH. It was awesome to see them again (and their boys and Eric's parents, too!). I had forgotten how incredible their music is; the vocals and music and atmosphere of worship was beyond words.
