That for Which I Am Thankful

This video was created for the “Home Is Church, Too” segment of the July 5th, 2015, worship service at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Hazelwood, MO. The “Devotion” portion in the Taking Faith Home bulletin insert encourages the following: “In your home devotion times this week, make a list or draw pictures of ways you have seen God’s power at work, whether in nature or in people or events around you. Give thanks for those things. Read and discuss one or more of these verses that speak of God’s power: Matthew 19:26; 1 Chronicles 29:12; 1 Corinthians 1:25; Psalm 89:8-9,11,13; and Isaiah 40:28-31.” I chose the Isaiah reading as a starting point in creating this short video using images representing ways in which I see God’s power at work.

A Twelfth Night Madrigal Evening with the Greenleaf Singers – January 12th, 2014 – 4:00 PM

The Greenleaf Singers is an exciting vocal ensemble specializing in a cappella music of the Renaissance. Their repertoire includes folk songs from village festivals, and love melodies from royal palaces. So, come sit back, relax and enjoy their wonderfully blended voices as they bring to life the works of the most gifted composers of the 15th thru 16th Centuries as well as some cherished carols of the season in celebration of “Twelfth Night.” This is a festival marking the coming of the Epiphany and concluding the Twelve Days of Christmas. It is defined by the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary as “the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking.”
