|a fad from the the 1950's|
Before I left though, I had a nice conversation with Joann. But before I get to that, let me say that Vespers was beautiful this evening. The choir sounded great and at one point a lone voice cried, "Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord." To hear the Psalms sung like that really touched my soul! Thank God for the faithful choir members in our parish who lend their talents so that all may benefit. I know that when the Psalms are chanted as they are, it helps me grow closer to God.
So as I was leaving, Joann grabbed my attention. She thanked me for sharing something on facebook, a link which I now cannot even remember doing. That means either I am getting old or I am posting too much on facebook; maybe both! That led to a conversation about some old time Jesus music people. People like Barry McGuire, the 2nd Chapter of Acts and Andre Crouch. These people really inspired me in my young life. I am happy to hear they are doing well. In fact, Joann shared a youtube video on her facebook page which I will share here. It's a great song; hope you enjoy.
I was glad to go to Vespers tonight. I missed last week because our protestant church had a Christmas dinner that our whole family went to. I was actually asked to to attend a youth Christmas party tonight so I could lead devotions but I said "no" because I knew I wanted to go to Vespers. Also, it doesn't look like I will be at the Orthodox Church either Christmas eve or Christmas day. But, God willing, I will go to the Divine Liturgy that is on the Thursday after Christma for the Syn-axis of the Most Holy Theotokos.
Have a Merry Christmas, dear readers and thank you for your constant prayers, kind thoughts and kind words!
I know it's early yet but.....Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
