Once again, I am delighted to welcome the whole Black & Bluez band to Sicamous United Church on Sunday, Dec. 17th at 10:00 AM. They have been working on a musical Christmas service – with sing-along carols and some special numbers. One of the songs we will be offering is `After the Magnificat’ a song I wrote over 30 years ago, as I wondered how Mary may have felt after the baby was born, and realized how vulnerable they all were – living under military occupation. I have been singing the song for 30 years, but only the words and chords were available before. Thanks to a beautiful piano arrangement by my friend Sabrina Trigg, the song is written out in harmony – the various band instruments filling in the voices.
Come and join us this Sunday and let the music bless you.
And… don’t forget, there will be no service on the morning of Sunday, Dec 24th, but everyone is invited to come to the intergenerational candle-light Christmas Eve service at 7:00 PM.
Now…in the midst of this busy season, set down all the `shoulds’ and `not finished yet’ burdens you carry, and embrace yourself with the same tenderness and trustworthiness that you would the Christ-child. Let love be born again.
