Featured Chapel Speaker: Stan Walker, 2009 Australian Idol Winner

Stan Walker Australian Idol At Compassion, we set aside one hour each Wednesday for spiritual refreshment through chapel, division devotions or prayer groups. Typically, chapel is the first and third Wednesday of each month, but this week, a unique opportunity presented itself and we had our chapel service on Tuesday, to accommodate a special guest.

Stan Walker, Australia’s 2009 Idol winner, came to Colorado Springs after his recent trip to Haiti with Compassion Australia. He shared about his faith journey, his experience on Australian Idol and his time in Haiti.

You can also view the Stan Walker Australian Idol [3] video interview on Viddler.

After the interview ended, Stan sang several songs for us, which we didn’t include in the video above because copyright restrictions prevent us.

However, the video below gives you an idea of what we got to experience. “Amazing Grace” was the last song Stan sang for us. It’s powerful! Particularly when you know his story.

Going forward, it’s our intention to regularly share our chapel messages on the blog. But to give you as much flexibility as possible, we’ve also created an audio podcast of our chapel messages [4], which you can subscribe to via iTunes. Hope you enjoy them.
