Fall Concerts- 2011

I returned to the Middletown Public Libary, last Sunday, to give a concert.  My roots are there  -- I remember going to the library in my youth, writing term papers, and taking out many books!   They now have a wonderful recital room, and schedule many concerts throughout the year.  The concerts are free and open to the public.    Since it was Veteran's Day weekend, I included songs, such as my song, "Thank You", dedicated to our armed forces.   Today, I gave a concert at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, in Little Egg Harbor, NJ.   The church planned a great afternoon - -a free, pot-luck lunch was served, from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM.   My concert began at 2:00 PM.   After the concert, dessert was served.     I included my songs, "Covenant Love", "Send Me", "Worship the Lord", "If You Love Me", and "Divine Union".    I dedicated the concert to Adeline Stenger -- she died a few years ago, and I sang at her funeral.  The funeral was held at this church.   I met Pastor Waid, and said I would like to come back, and give a concert.  Today was the day!    Adeline's husband, Bill, was there in a wheel chair.  He had a stroke a few years ago.  During the silent prayer, I could hear people crying.    I never know which songs will have an impact on someone's heart and faith.    This congregation is very spiritual, and their sincerity and passion for Christ, is evident.   I enjoyed every minute of the concert, and the fellowship before, and afterwards.   God was with us, and I felt His presence.   Next week, we go to Clifton Heights, PA!
