Catching a Glimpse of Our Chapel Choir

It has been fun, this past week, to receive brief text messages and photos from Jim of the high school Chapel Choir trip to New York. From the first day's surprising glimpse of two of our students joyfully hoisted in the air at a recreation area; to a glimpse of that same evening, of the choir preparing for their first concert; to a glimpse of them gathering on Wednesday to sing at the United Nations - these momentary glimpses helped me to understand the fun - and the significance - of what they were experiencing.

Chapel Choir Tour Day 3

Day two found Lauren looking at the world from a different perspective. After losing her wallet temporarily, she flipped with joy when it was returned safely! During a sermon by Pastor Beth, words ushered us into God's nudging our hearts to open to gratitude. As this was said a yellow balloon came over and Julian said, "God’s presence floated amongst us." The balloon floated in and over us visually scoring the sermon. God’s presence followed us even into our messy bus, THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING no it’s that same balloon bouncing around us.
