Lessons and Carols

We went to Fourth Presbyterian Church this evening for their Festival of Lessons and Carols, a celebration of the Christmas story. We enjoyed the sanctuary, youth, and covenant (children’s) choirs accompanied by a fairly full orchestra. We sang or listened to 13 different songs (somehow appropriate for Friday the thirteenth), along with 9 passages of scripture. Not everyone’s cup of tea, perhaps, but we really enjoyed it. It wasn’t the sort of thing to take a lot of pictures of, but I did take a few, including this one from our seat towards the rear of the sanctuary.

    Thank you, Henry, for this picture of Fourth. Memories of long ago flood back. Fourth will always have a special place in my heart. It was through the ministry of Fourth that I came to know the Lord. Sunday night services when Dr. Halverson would have them turn down the lights and we would sing, GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS. Of course, there were all the people who served and worshipped and fellowshipped. Last but not least, getting married at Fourth with Rusty Hays officiating is another cherished memory. Wow~look at what one posting & picture can generate!! Merry Christmas!! May you walk under His grace, confident in hope, fully embraced by His unfailing love….
