Joyful Worship

On Sunday we ordained and installed elders to our session in the class of 2015. Normally this is a joyful occasion – but this time it was downright special! What was especially wonderful was that the sun of the woman who was ordained came and sang Amazing Grace. He played the guitar and sang in a lilting “country” style. The congregation joined in on the last stanza – and I can only say that what I heard was nothing short of angelic. When the people of God sing – something special happens. And so it did.
