"Ring the Bells... It's Christmas!"
Watch out! Christmas is coming and it's coming fast! Some of us are anxiously awaiting that blessed day. Others are digging in their heels and trying to stop or at least slow down the calendar. I must admit I am in the "anxiously awaiting" category and proud of it. Ha!
Although Christmas is still a month away, Shepherd's Voice has been hard at work learning and re-learning the songs we have selected for this Christmas season. If my memory serves me correctly, we actually started rehearsing Christmas songs back in August. There's nothing like singing about snow and bundling up by a warm fire while sitting in an air conditioned room! But seriously, we are excited about the songs we will be singing this year.
Our concert this year at Riverview Baptist Church has been entitled "Ring the Bells...
It's Christmas!" and will be presented on Saturday, December 6 beginning at 7:00 (free admission). We have been praying that the hearts of those who will be in attendance that evening will be open to truly hear the messages of the songs and to, at least for the evening, put aside the hustle and bustle of their schedules and be refreshed and renewed by the re-telling of the greatest love story ever told.
We hope to see you at our December 6 concert, or at least at some point during this Christmas season. We long to remind you that Jesus, Emmanuel, is God with us... that our long awaited Savior has come to deliver us out of the darkness... and from that darkness He has sent us a great light, Jesus. And if we open our hearts to Jesus, He will give us life. Hallelujah! So welcome the glorious message of Christmas with open hearts and great enthusiasm this year. Let the bells of your heart ring out with great, great joy! It's Christmas!
