Just who are the Rexdale Hayseeds?

The Rexdale Hayseeds

October 2,2011

Some of you may have been wondering what we’ve been up to when we’re not taking bookings, making beds and cleaning floors….. we’ll let you in on a secret….

Once upon a time, a group of people went out of their way to put on a performance for a New Year’s Eve Party featuring the theme, “Back at the Farm”.

They had a lot of fun, and the people enjoyed their light-hearted humour, and so they were asked to sing on a number of occasions over the years.

This year was the 50th. Anniversary of the church they originally sang in, and at this prestigious affair they were once more requested to make an appearance in memory of days all-but-forgotten.

Now most of the musicians are highly trained professionals, and the calibre of music much more sophisticated and honouring to God, but people still welcomed the Hayseeds with open arms, because they reflect a little of the ordinary and humorous in all of us.

When we are around ordinary people, we sometimes find it easy to relax because it allows us to be great by being ordinary along with them. Music to raise the spirit, and music to keep us grounded and real – now that’s what I call balanced – glorifying to God, yet perhaps giving Him a chuckle on the side, exclaiming, “That’s my kids!”

So wonderful to be able to bring God into every part of life, and enjoy Him in worship, praise and fun!

We had fun!
