Dear Gentle Readers:
I will be a part of a piano-vocal concert with Anita McNew, Music Director of Christ United Methodist Church, on Sunday, February 21, 2010, at 6:00 p.m. We will each be presenting 4-5 pieces that are of a contemplative and introspective nature as we enter the season of Lent.
A couple of my selections will include Pachelbel’s “Canon in D”, the first movement of Beethoven’s “Moonlight” sonata, and an assortment of hymns entitled “Cornerstone Medley”. A sampling of Anita’s performance includes Schubert’s “Ave Maria” as well the hauntingly beautiful “Via Dolorosa”.
We cordially invite you to attend this concert as you prepare your heart for the upcoming Holy Season.
The concert is free and open to the public, and a reception immediately follows. The church is located at 3301 Sycamore School Road, near the intersection of McCart and Sycamore School Road – just across the street from Rosa ’s and Wal-Mart. The phone number is 817.346.2400. Additionally, please visit our website at http://www.cumcfw.com.
If you are unable to attend and would enjoy having a CD of the concert, they will be available in a week or two after the concert. The suggested donation for the CD is $10.00. All proceeds will benefit the Chancel Choir of CUMC.
We hope to see you Sunday evening.
“The holiness we seek does not consist of human perfection
or strength of will, but God's grace.”

Dear Gentle Readers:
As many of you already know, I serve as my church's pianist at the Traditional Worship Service. My offertories are now on the church's website. If you want to hear some of the selections, go to
Then click on "Online Sermons" on the left sidebar.
Choose a date, then click on "Music". We are beginning to add titles/composers.
January 24 is "As the Deer", a Belinda Scholl arrangement of the popular contemporary piece.
January 31 is very blurry, and does not do justice to the music or to me. It's a medley of "Holy, Holy" and "How Majestic is Your Name", another Belinda arrangement.
February 7 has title/composer.
I'd love your feedback. What I do is first for God, secondly for others, and thirdly for myself.
