“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Christmas Concerts

photography by Anthony Kaetzel

Christopher is singing in our church's Christmas Concerts this year.  All 10 of them.  There are about 200 singers and musicians with ages ranging from Kindergarten through adult.  And there are probably about the same number of amazing volunteers behind the scenes.  Approximately 10,000 to 15,000 people will enjoy the performances... and given the opportunity to surrender their hearts to the Lord through Jesus Christ, His Son.

This is the first time Christopher has worn a tuxedo.  And because we have been having beautiful inordinate amounts of sunshine (and lack of rain), we stopped by Gabriel Park to get these photos.

Christopher thoroughly enjoys being part of the youth choir at our church.  And I was thinking... that if you are local and your child does not have an opportunity to be part of a Christmas Performance or a choir... they could be part of ours.  You don't have to attend our church or be a member for your child to be part of this experience.  Practices are normally 6-7pm on Wednesdays.  The elementary grades have a musical in the spring and the upper grades go on tour in the summer.

Christopher's friend, K'reisa, came to watch one of Saturday's performances.  It is always fun to share the experience with friends.

What a handsome young man! I am thankful that both of my children will be in the Christmas program at their school tonight. It is a blessing to watch them participate in the beauty of this season.
