Virtual Handbells

In choir rehearsal, “virtual ensembles” came up in the conversation.  Here is one example! It’s an interesting presentation of groups and individuals…some in black light, some in shadow, some in costumes(!) and some on outside location.  The music is pretty different – notice the new rim technique – stay tuned at least until the hand chime melody comes in!  🙂

James Meredith’s Mysterium


We are thankful we’ve been able to have worship services at the preaching station in Creede this summer.  For those of you who haven’t been there, here are views of St. Augustine’s, which is where we meet.





Light One Candle


Light one candle for HOPE (PEACE), One bright candle for HOPE (PEACE)!,

He brings HOPE (PEACE) to every heart, He comes, He comes!

Light one candle for JOY! One bright candle for joy! Ev’ry nation will find salvation in Bethlehem’s baby boy.

Light one candle for LOVE! One bright candle for LOVE! He brings LOVE to every heart, He comes, He comes!

–Natalie Sleeth


reformation fireWe went down to the river to pray, sing, and hear God’s word around a campfire.  And s’mores were had!  We saw an arm of the Milky Way, and we marveled at the zillions of stars we could see that night.  We wondered if we had ever seen that many so densely packed, and what Abraham must have really thought — .

Though devils all the world should fill, all eager to devour us,

We tremble not, we fear no ill; they cannot overpow’r us.

This world’s prince may still scowl fierce as he will,

He can harm us none, He’s judged; the deed is done; 

One little Word can fell him.

The Word they still shall let remain nor any thanks have for it;

He’s by our side upon the plain with his good gifts and Spirit.
