Last evening, Tony and I, along with some of our family members, were once again privileged to experience the sacred sounds of Christmas, performed by Seattle Pacific University’s choirs and instrumentalists.
The inspirational concert opened to the sounds of the extraordinary Fisk pipe organ. It is a powerfully commanding sound that draws the listener’s ear to a heavenly place. Surely there will be a Fisk pipe organ in heaven….we are just being prepared.
The tears were already beginning to roll down my face as I, along with the audience, rose to our feet to welcome the focus of the season…..Jesus. As we sang together the hymn, Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus, tears trickled down my face. I could not hold them back. We were singing a song of old, calling for Jesus to come, but in my heart, I felt we were a modern-day congregation, again calling for the long-expected return of Jesus to come.
