This may not be the biggest apple in the world but,
the Big Apple I'm talking about is ~
New York City!
And that's where I'm going later this week for 3 days.
I have never been to New York. I hear it's amazing.
The city that never sleeps.
I am not going to New York for a shopping spree although I may make a few purchases while there. How can I resist!
Our church's choir was invited to join a mass choir of members from several other churches in the United States and sing at ~
Can you believe it? We have been planning this trip since we heard about it a year ago and the day is almost here.
We've been practicing for months for the world premiere of
"The Light of Christmas".
There are fourteen members of our choir going and the mass choir will be about 300 voices. The concert is Monday night.
We will have opportunity to do some site seeing and go on a harbour dinner cruise as well as attending church at Brooklyn Tabernacle on Sunday where we'll get to hear their famous choir.
It's going to be a crazy busy time. But what a tremendous opportunity to present this special Christmas music and minister to those who attend!
I am starting to get more excited as the day of departure draws near. I am also a bit anxious about the traveling and being in such a big crowded city and remembering all the words to the songs we're singing. A lot of work, preparation, practice and prayer has gone into this trip so I know God will be honoured and blessed and will use us in some special way to bless someone.
So, that's my 'big apple' news.
I'm going to THE BIG APPLE!
I may even do a little happy dance in Times Square!
I'll be away for several days so I would like to wish all my American friends a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.
I'll have a few pictures to share, hopefully, when I return next week. Bye for now.
