“All you ask of me is truth, then in the secret of my heart teach me wisdom.” ~Ps. 51
- Last Saturday: The Wedding of Maja Miletich and Jeremiah Watkins. Sanctuary and Gathering Hall were transformed into Dinner and Dance areas after the wedding. 180 guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres on the Labyrinth. Jeremiah is a stand up comedian from LA so a dozen+ comics, comedy industry execs and Hollywood screenwriters attended the celebration. The after dinner party was a pure LA Dance scene with music from disco to hip hop pulsing away. So much joy!
- Sunday morning: We were blessed with numerous works of Bach and Luther through the good gifts of Alice O’Sullivan and Amy McKenzie and our Peace Singers. The Forum deepened our experience and appreciation of Bach through the context and singing of several of Bach’s hymns and Alice’s presenting his “Fantasy and Fugue in G minor” (transcribed for the piano by Liszt). Divine inspiration.
- That afternoon: The Sycamore Strings Academy under the direction of Goran Berg gave their recital with 15 young artists presenting the most glorious gifts of Mozart, Janacek and many more. Yes, heaven does touch earth.
“Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne;Yet that Scaffold sways the future,And behind the dim unknown,Stands God within the shadows…..keeping watch over God’s own.”
“Let your minds and hearts be filled with everything that is true, everything that is honorable, everything that is upright and pure, everything that we love and admire — with whatever is good and praiseworthy. Keep doing everything you have learned from me, were told by me, have heard or seen me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.” (Philippians 4: 8 -9)
