Make this your common practice: confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you can live together whole and healed. The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with. Elijah, for instance, human just like us, prayed hard that it wouldn’t rain, and it didn’t – not a drop for three and a half years. Then he prayed that it would rain, and it did. The shower came and everything started growing again.

Sharon Williams, Greta Shull In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan. Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone. Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, in the bleak midwinter, long, long ago angels and archangels may have gathered there, cherubim and seraphim thronged the air. But His mother only, in her maiden bliss, worshipped the beloved with a kiss. What can I give Him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; if I were a wise man, I would do my part. Yet what I can I give Him: give Him my heart.

As we gather for worship the Praise Orchestra, under the direction of Donald Huff, plays Alfred Reed’s This musical piece for symphonic band was written in 1944. It is one of the most popular and frequently-performed pieces of concert band literature. An ancient Russian Christmas carol ("Carol of the Little Russian Children"), together with a good deal of original material and some motivic elements derived from the liturgical music of the Eastern Orthodox Church, forms the basis for this musical impression of Old Russia during the jubilant Christmas season. Although cast in the form of a single, continuous movement, four distinct sections may be easily recognized, which the composer originally subtitled "Children's Carol," "Antiphonal Chant," "Village Song," and the closing "Cathedral Chorus." All of the resources of the modern, integrated symphonic band are drawn upon to create an almost overwhelming sound picture lasts 14–16 minutes. of tone color, power, and sonority. A typical performance of (Hymn 125) is one of the great major Christmas carols written by Isaac Watts, , is said to be an arrangement by Lowell Mason of music from paraphrasing Psalm 98. The tune, Handel’s “Messiah”. This basic downward scale can be found in “Messiah” choruses, and , two great American music styles, Jazz and Gospel, are combined in this contemporary setting of this popular Christmas song. The song was originally written in the style of a spiritual by Robert MacGimsey. , by James Montgomery, was first published in 1816 under the title "Nativity." Over the years, the carol was revised several times for various publications. The beautiful lyrics are by Henry Thomas Smart. The melody is named after the London Regent set to the tune, Square Presbyterian Church and first published in 1867. Today's arrangement is by noted band composer Robert W. Smith. is based upon a poem written by Christian Rossetti, and set to music by the English Today it is heard in an arrangement for ladies trio composer, Gustav Holst, who also composed the by Laura Farnell, and sung by Greta Shull, soprano; Debbie Daniel, mezzo-soprano; and Sharon Williams, alto. (Hymn 123) was written by William Dix while recovering from a serious illness. He was reading a story of the Wise Men and realized that there were valuable lessons implied there for our own Christian witness, that we should be led to Jesus, offer our treasure (and talents) to Him and surrender to His leading. The tune, was composed for these words by Conrad Kocher. This tune is also used with the hymn, was commissioned by Bruce Wilson for the 2006 Columbian Union Band Festival. This arrangement by Jay Dawson starts out as a straight-forward chorale and then segues from soulful gospel to a happy hallelujah ending. Jay Dawson is a composer that owns his own publishing company in Nashville, TN.
