this weekend was the annual christmas candlelight service put on by the music department at john brown university. i hadn’t been in years, but my dad said he wanted to go, so on friday night we got dressed up and went. it was a lovely evening full of music and worshipful moments. of course sitting next to 10 and 13 year old cousins was quite interesting. i really never thought i’d have to say ‘stop arm wrestling’ in the middle of a choir concert, but all in all, it was a delight. to be honest, it was just great getting to spend the time with my dad. we don’t hang out nearly enough.
