Prayer for Thanksgiving:
“O God for all the blessings we enjoy, we give you thanks. Help us look at the world around us in such a way that we see your hand in creation and in those we meet. Help us be a blessing as we gather with family and friends. AMEN.
Community Nativity Special Rehearsal: If you would like to do a solo or small group at the Community Nativity Concert on Dec. 2, there will be a rehearsal at 9:45 am on Sunday, November 27 with Jonathan. We will perform from 7:30 to 8:30 pm. Email Debbie [email protected] if you plan to perform. Andrea Millaway is helping to coordinate this with me as I will be at SMU that night for a special concert reunion with alumni of the Sacred Music program. If you cannot rehearse on Sunday and you want to perform, please let me know ASAP.
Please save this email for information purposes! Thanks for all you do!
