It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!
Well, it’s that time of year! I just received my new packet of music for Easter, 2018! Yes, you heard right – Easter, 2018. Where did Christmas go, you ask? I received that packet way back in June. Believe me, the only group that gets the Christmas off to an earlier start than Walmart is worship pastors and ministers of music. But I have no objection. For me, June is just about the right time to start listening to Christmas music and planning for the long, cold winter nights ahead. Call it occupational hazard, or occupational blessing – whichever your point of view. For me, it’s a blessing.
For the rest of the world, Christmas is just now starting to enter their sights. Folks feel the nip of autumn, the see the sun set lower and lower and a quick stroll through Walmart reminds them that Christmas is indeed on its way – in fact, sooner than you may think.
Which brings us to the next point about Christmas – the Choir is already working on songs for the upcoming festive season and you are invited to join us! We often have singers who cannot make a year-round commitment to the choir but they can join us for several weeks leading up to Christmas. Let me offer a personal invitation to join us at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday evenings for 30-40 minutes of Christmas rehearsal. Of course, you’d be welcomed to stay for the remainder of the time as we continue working on music for upcoming Sundays, but that would be your choice. But in any case, let me be the first to say, Merry Christmas!
David Johnson, Worship Pastor
