A Morning To Remember…

The morning began with congregational singing.  Once again, Chris was in the audience searching for favorite hymns, Gerald was on stage directing and Stan kept us on pitch with the piano.  Gerald encouraged us to sing loud even if we don’t think our voices are good because pitch changes as sound travels.  “Part of worship…
