You Shall Have a Song!

For my reflection today I’m simply going to list things that stand out in my mind as I look back over the service.  These are in no particular order.

  • Ben Tompson’s negative response to my singing.  ( I think I finally won him over when I got to singing “A, B, C, ….”
  • Sybal’s wonderful work with our LTC choir.
  • The beauty of sign language.
  • The joy of seeing so many faces at church that I have not seen in a awhile.
  • Holding my 8 week old granddaughter to greet people after the service.
  • Marveling over that long list of scriptures I read at the end of the sermon.  (I hope it wasn’t too long.)
  • Rejoicing with those who rejoice and weeping with those who weep during our Family Prayer Time.
  • Watching our beautiful children and listening as they told the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
  • Having all my children and their spouses at home at the same time attending Easter services with us.
  • Reflecting on the great work of so many who devoted themselves to making our Easter worship a meaningful time of celebration and thanksgiving.

    Byron, sorry for the late comment but my work computer is down this week. I'm using my bosses computer now!

    This past Sunday was a real treat, the kids were great, and it was inspiring watching the young'ens using sign languge. Yes indeed there was a lot of scripture that morning, but sometimes a lot of scripture can be a vey good thing.

    Seeing the building packed filled my heart with great joy. A community of Christ-likened, lifting our hands up to God, being transformed through communitive love. You cant ask for a greater blessing then that!

    Ps: my copy of Armchair Mystic just came in the other day. I'm enjoying the book very much, thanks for the suggestion.
