Happy Anniversary!

Today we celebrated my congregation's 60th Anniversary with one service at 10:00 a.m. and a special luncheon afterwards. Our bishop preached, and all of the choirs sang.

By far the highlight of the event (other than the food) was a song by the children's choir. They sang: "We are the church", interspersed with bits and pieces of popular music from the 1950's through today (including a little bit of rap and disco!).

Diane, congratulations on your anniversary! Wow! Rap and disco.

The children are the church. Didn't Jesus say something about coming as little children?

Happy Anniversary with diversity... rap,disco and faith. It is a lovely soup that God has created, if only we view it with an open heart and great love.

Fran, the good news is: I think the children do.

Church anniversaries are great. The place is usually packed and friends that have moved on come back to share in the celebration.

Glad you had such a great day!
