Hometown happenings

Thanks to the choir and choir director yesterday for the wonderful introduction to the new hymnal at my hometown church which I attend when I visit with family periodically throughout the year.  I am forever grateful that the music of voices, organ, piano and such still resonates in the sanctuary I knew as a child, providing a stable reference point for the rest of my life.

Whether a song we sing is two years old, 500 years old, 1500 years old, or 50,000 years old, the [sub]cultural connection to people around the planet who choose to improve our community through the concept of religion is just as important as connections that do not use the concept of religion to do so — how we approach the idea of community and put into action our concerns and cares for others is different per individual person and valued as such.
