I had the honor and opportunity to play in my old home church in Bethlehem, the UU Church of the LV. Larry Lipkis, the musical director and Moravian professor of music (whoa!), invited me to play for the service. We both thought that Halloween would be appropriate.
Don the Minister covered for me when I ran into the hymn ‘I Cannot Think of Them as Dead’, a killer 18th century song – later interpreted by a UU. I tried, but it made no sense to me. BUT, Don plays jazz guitar proficiently and said he’d lead it.
I did ‘Giants’ in the sanctuary, and I brought out the Waldzither for the ending piece. Good to reconnect with quite a few elder UU friends, all asking about the kids and Kim. A nice fall morning in North Bethehem.
