An amazing day at church

Jeffrey Wells, bass-baritone with the Metropolitan Opera sang for us – and did he sing! If before the sermon he sang How Great Thou Art. His great voice filled the sanctuary and his incredible stage presence made him a pleasure both to hear to see. As he came to the fourth stanza that begins, “When Christ shall come…” Mr. Wells began walking up the steps to the platform toward me. He then invited me to stand and sing with him. I did as he requested – and we sang together. Before long the congregation was singing with us. I am sure that old sanctuary has never heard such music – but I hope it will hear it again and again!
