“Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God. Teach us to count our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” – Psalm 90:1,2,12
Another new year is upon us – what a challenge! It is especially challenging in light of God’s Word that shows us our days upon the earth are rapidly passing. Maybe we need to pray with the psalmist for a “heart of wisdom” that will enable us this year to live each new day in a way that brings all glory to God.
2019 was a wonderful year of music and worship at Santa Fe, especially during the Advent and Christmas seasons. The Hanging of the Greens on December 2 was, as always, an amazing service. Our Christmas dinner on December 18 was beautiful, and was accented with the vocal stylings of Back Row. The Chancel Choir presented a meaningful service, “A Festival of Lessons and Carols”, on December 22, and, of course, both evening Christmas Eve services were sweet and rich with scripture and music.
Mustard Seed and Chancel Choir rehearsals will resume on Wednesday, January 8 with the Chancel Choir at 6:45 and Mustard Seed at 8:00. We will resume Kids’ Praise also on Wednesday, January 8 at 5:30 p.m. Santa Fe Winds and Handbells will continue to be a big part of 2020.
