Surely Tchaikovsky knows by now

This Sunday marked the Baptism of the Lord. The service at First Presbyterian Church in Whitestone saw the singing of “Down to the River to Pray” accompanied on the bodhran by a real amateur. Every bodhran player on the planet, and most every Celtic musician, rolled over. Beethoven may have done the same. Surely Tchaikovsky has heard by now.

Thanks to Rex White for the photos.

See you along the Trail.

A moment from yesterday I am thankful for

The closest I have ever come to seeing an actual opera. I went to support Rutgers Presbyterian Church and my friend, Robert Williams, who participated in the talk back after the performance. The performance and Robert were both awesome.

Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.
