Earlier this evening we had a Concert Choir rehearsal. Very nice. The basses have some particularly beautiful passages in a couple of pieces we are doing.
Today I worked inside. I'm preaching this coming weekend in Guilford, and I had to get my information into the secretary today for the bulletin, which means choosing hymns, scripture readings, etc. It's All Saints Day, so that pretty well established the theme. There is more involved in putting together a service than you might imagine. I also started thinking about my sermon. When there is a clear theme like "saints," I often start with a word study, using a Concordance to the Bible, which is an absolutely indispensable tool for biblical study. It can be very interesting (believe it or not!) Here's a section from the concordance on "saints."
