We are gearing up for our Christmas cantata on Dec. 6 - lots of practice going on. In addition, we have handbells that played this morning and another group that will play next Sunday. Our community bell choir has several concerts coming up the first couple of weekends in December so we're really working hard to get that stuff ready. Busy time but I know after the first 2 weekends in Dec. I'll be able to breathe again.

What do you mean? I didn't think it was possible to post "too much!"

I LOVE "Welcome to Our World." I had never heard it (still haven't) but I came across the music in a book I bought last month. It is so wonderful. I really like Chris Rice. One of my all-time favorites is his "Untitled Hymn," (Come to Jesus). Do you know it? I got to sing it a friend's mother's funeral, and it was so moving.

Let all you do be done in love.

Sounds like you all are very involved with your churches. I was asked to head up a Christmas cantata with the young people. Our church has like 4 young people who come very often and a few little kids who are hit and miss, yet we made it through. Our program was actually our first real practice!!

We sang Chris Rice's "Welcome to Our World" as a group with the cd accompaniment, but I accompanied most of the rest with the guitar. Played mandolin on "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem." It was fun!

I know I'm posting too much, but yesterday my dh and I went to one of our regular "gigs" at a local nursing home. It was frustrating to me because I couldn't get my mandolin tuned right at all. We blamed the cold weather. emoticon I just gave up and played the guitar instead.

What a wonderful time in your life! I know what you mean; when I found my church it was the first time since I was a child that I really felt like I belonged. It's a great thing to have a real church family.
Have fun!

Let all you do be done in love.

Ooo - you guys are growing! That's exciting. I will sure pray for a good piano for you. It worked at my church! Someone actually donated a baby grand! Keep up the good work, I know you will be blessed.

Well, our church does not have a choir but, we recently were able to pull a small praise band together. We are just really getting started and still (cheat) singing with the DVD's of big name christian music singers. We now have a few songs that we can do by ourselves. We have now learned "Here I am to Worship", "Worthy is the Lamb" and "Breathe". It is fun. I am the only "old lady" lol of the group. The rest are in High School. My son plays the bass quitar and does a GREAT job of playing by ear. We have a young man, a freshman, that is the lead singer and a young lady, a sophomore, that helps sing too. I play the piano and sing either lead or backup. It seems to be going well. I just wish we had a better piano. We are currently using a cheap electric from Best Buy. It really can't do what I want it to do. Our "real" piano cannot stay in tune. Please pray that someone will give us a "good" piano soon.

Have a blessed day!

As per my email, I'll go first!
My choir and I just had the honor of singing at our pastor's wedding! The choir sang an SATB setting of Twila Paris' "How Beautiful," and it was. I found the most gorgeous solo, a setting of an excerpt from the Song of Solomon, written by Mark Hayes. It's for medium voice, and it's called, "Arise My Love, and Come Away." The piano accompaniment was flowing and gorgeous, and what a melody. The lyrics, of course, were joyful and passionate. All in all, I thought it was the perfect wedding solo!

How about you? What's been going on at your church?
