Holiday Piano Concert | Larger Numbers in Attendance
Despite a few drops of rain, it seemed the largest crowd to date filled St. Philip’s for Michael Allen Harrison’s December 3rd Concert. Many guests said they were first timers.

Advent Giving Wreath | For those in need

As I looked at the calendar for Advent this year, I realized that a lot of we-adults could use some of these same suggestions because they are simply ‘good habits.’ Years ago—and there still may be—a ‘One-a-Day-Vitamin’ which was supposed to supply our daily ‘minimum for balance’.
