The team arrived at WCV right at 2:00 on Sunday afternoon – Orion Dog in tow – for a special 6th Floor concert provided by our own, Tanya and Ken Matsuda. But…no one was in the gathering room, even though WCV had announced the concert to the residents early in the week. Then, something glorious happened. Tanya and Ken began to play, and they came – from all three halls, on their own steam or using walkers. Settling in, the men and women joined the Matsudas, the Feisters, and the Quayles in songs of the season. An extra surprise was Fr. Ron singing in German, and Ken singing Silent Night in his native tongue, Japanese. One request followed another until a whole hour had passed. A resident wanted to know if we could have another concert soon. Yes, the Matsudas said, and Tanya suggested a song-fest of old hymns, perhaps in January. After all of the Christmas carols, we sang In the Garden as our closing. But there was one more song: Happy Birthday for Rosie, who will turn 100 in January. This morning, our seminarian-in-residence, Terry Gatwood, preached a sermon, A Song Worth Singing. He concluded by singing the chorus to an old-time hymn: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory, great things He has done. This was a day to praise the Lord – in worship at St. Augustine’s – and at Worthington Christian, where we gave God the glory as the people rejoiced in the Lord’s gift of song!
