Hope! "A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen - the notion that what is wanted can be had, and that events will turn out for the best. Hope has always lifted the human heart. In Old Testament times, the beleaguered hoped for deliverance, the sick hoped for healing, and the Israelites hoped for freedom in a new and peaceful world. But during one moment in time, Hope took on a new meaning and we celebrate that moment each season of Christmas when Hope came as a gift from God.”
May 7, 2018 - not sure why I remember that date. Maybe because it seemed late this year; but on that day, my first batch of Christmas Music samples arrived! Then, in quick succession, I received many others from a variety of music publishing companies. Thus began my process of not only considering WHAT to sing for the 2018 Choir Christmas Music presentation, but also HOW to get all of you to join me to tell the story of Hope that Christmas brings to us each year!
Rehearsals for Christmas will begin this Sunday, September 9th at 5:30 pm in the Choir room. (2nd floor of the Education Building.) Come have a “taste” of the Adult Choir as a new small group to become involved with for a season - no need to commit past Christmas. I know you will enjoy preparing to share the Christmas story through the ministry of music, and we would love to add your voice to our celebration. All are welcome! - Philip
