I’ve said it before. I think our youth are super talented. Two examples this evening:
- I just got home from a coffee house at the corner of Clarence Center and Goodrich. It was a cozy little joint with a homey atmosphere. I was there to see Lauren’s artwork. Tonight was her senior art show at the coffee house. I’m not a great judge of art, but even I know that this was good stuff. Cindy took me around to show me all the pieces, beaming the whole time as proud mothers do. It’s going to be there for a few weeks, so if you are out that way (or fancy a quaint little coffee shop), be sure to stop by and check out Lauren’s Work. (We’ll also have some at the Spaghetti dinner on April 11)
- Tonight was opening night for the Kenmore Middle School musical, School House Rock. Annie and Jennie are the leads. I’ll be there on Saturday evening for the show. Annie sings with our band on Sunday morning, and they’ve done a duet together for our Christmas program one year. I’m sure it will rock the house (poor pun intended). Tickets are $5, available at the door, if you’d like to see it.
I love seeing our youth explore their God-given talents and grow into the young men and women God wants them to be. One day, I’d love to see a ministry at First Trinity that would help youth develop their talents and use them in worship and ministry amongst us. My first goal (a big leap!) is to find a college student willing to organize a youth band for Sunday mornings at Sunday School and occasionally at worship. I just need $5,000 and the right person. I’m praying God drops something in my lap. 🙂 Now I’m wondering if I need to also look at starting an art school…
