Singing for the Oldest Birthday

Reverend Douglas Peck asked in the children's message who had been to the oldest birthday.  Some grandmas' birthdays were offered and Rev. Peck was adept at making sure ages weren't disclosed.  I am certain there were more than a few with bated breath while that happened. St. Andrews United in Brooksdale was marking its 125th birthday and that definitely won the prize for the oldest much to the relief of the grandparents present.
ETS was fortunate to be invited to provide some special music and what a treat it was for us.  We filled the choir stalls and the small but very pretty church was filled.  Our Hallelujah, Wonderful World and You Raise Me Up were well received and a joy to sing.
The lunch to which we were invited afterwards would take another whole post to describe.  Oh yummy.
Congratulations to the wonderful people of Brooksdale and many thanks for your kind words and smiles.
