It’s great to be back into the regular schedule again. Chancel choir is off to a great start with a few new members (there’s always room for more) and I will soon put together the music for bells. A note to all of the ringers: you will be hearing from me soon—please check your calendars—I’d like to get ready to play in November, and I definitely would like to know soon how many of us will be available to play through Advent and Christmas Eve.
As I had mentioned in an earlier article, I am always open to feedback regarding Sunday music. Please contact me through e-mail, by phone, or talk to me on Sundays. Your input is both valuable and very helpful.
I’ll leave you with a lyric from a hymn titled “Keep a Song in your Heart” It’s from a turn of the century hymnal, written by Lizzie DeArmond:
Keep a song in your heart for the road is long,
You will need it to make you good and strong;
If you look to the Lord, tho' rough the way,
He will give you a song both night and day.
Keep a song in your heart when things go wrong,
Keep a song in your heart, a happy song;
All the troubles of life will soon depart
If you keep a song ringing in your heart.
Blessings, Paul Duncan
