Christmas Caroling and a Evening of Joy

Posted by Al Hathaway Saturday, December 7, 2013

Yesterday two choirs from area schools participated in an evening of Christmas caroling and songs. The Golden Voices of The Booker T. Washington Middle School for The Arts and The Furman L. Templeton Academy Choir shared in the joyous spirit of the season with beautifully arranged songs sung with the enthusiasm of our youth.

Over 250 people were in the audience, parents, caregivers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, school teachers, school administrators, and members of Union Baptist Church. The Room of Remembrance was standing room only.

How marvelous it was to spend an evening listening to our youth remind us of the reason for the season? Too often we miss opportunities for fellowship and communal sharing. There was a time when people would walk through the community singing the season's songs. Unfortunately we have lost that kind of cohesiveness, but we shouldn't lost the spirit.

I was truly blessed by the outpouring of the spirit that brought all of us together yesterday. Oh the blessed thought of youth singing songs of praise, thanksgiving and joy bringing us together every day. That's a glimpse of heaven - joy to the world and peace, goodwill towards all people - everyday!

I'm so happy to know the spirit of the living God can fall fresh on you once again.
