If you walk in the darkness, you do not know where you are going. John 12:35
Today I had the pleasure of collaborating in music with our daughter conducting and the Chancel Choir singing Stephen Paulus’ beautiful anthem, “Carol of the Hill.” The choir, well prepared, did fine in rehearsal this morning, however without a leader, nuances could be missed. I would not have been much help with my hands busy at the organ. The choir watching the conductor and the organ responding, the music breathed and took shape with dynamics and phrasing. We need each other!
When I sit at the organ it can be a lonely place. Surrounded by the choir and church community we support each other. An energy is felt that cannot be explained. God is with us and for us.
