This past Sunday the Lamington Presbyterian Church congregation worshipped God through song and sight. What a blessing it was to have the music of Handel’s Messiah washing over us! Thank you Liza for your creative effort especially in terms of blending the beautiful voices with the string instruments. There was a seamlessness to the music that was a sheer delight. Working on CD's of this community event.
Another moment of wonder was the Lighting of the Advent Candle. The Spitaleri Family stood before us with three generations represented. The youngest generation consisting of Finn, Grace and Lucy lifted up their tapers as they lit the four candles of preparation. Simultaneously, their grandmother shared a prayer for the world. She eloquently expressed our conviction that God loves the little children empowering them through creativity and imagination. As these words were lifted up…little Grace was caught up in the moment (we call these “Holy Spirit” moments!) and traced the lines of smoke emanating off her taper. Literally dancing with the taper and smoke…Grace was living out the “imagination” her grandmother celebrated. Let us be led by the little children as we approach Christmas. Let us open our hearts to the poetry of dancing and singing.
We invite you to celebrate the coming of the Jesus through two special services at The Lamington Presbyterian Church: 5 PM and 9 PM. Please come inviting your friends and family.
Grace and Peace,
