Everyone has a God-given talent of some sort. But only a few have a talent that can bring about tears of joy. This weekend, Saint Paul’s United Church of Christ in Woodstock, Virginia will present its annual program “The Singing Christmas Tree”. In a darken church full of glitter and green, with the adult and children’s choir accompanied by the church organ, one special young lady will take the evening’s performance a step above the typical church celebration.
A local high-school student, a gifted violinist, when the bow glides over those four rosined strings, even the most seasoned choir member will turn an eye away from their singing.
This is a little video that I made featuring an audio selection from last year’s performance. “Jesus, Jesus, Rest Your Head”.
