SINGING SOLO

The only solo singing I ever did was Hansel in a long-ago “Hansel and Gretel.”  My sister was Gretel.  Every Christmas Eve the choir has a Carol sing before service.  Last Saturday we had a snowstorm.  Luckily, someone plowed us out.  I had no excuse not to attend church.  But I was the only choir member who showed up, which meant I had to sing solo and lead the congregation alone.  I wasn’t even nervous!  It may be because the more one does something, the easier it gets.  What I know for sure is that if there wasn’t a choir to sing in at St. Stephen’s, I never would have had the chance to do this!  I am thankful for St. Stephen’s.  And it’s choir.
