1. Wednesday's rehearsal will start at 6:00. This may rush you a little,
but it will keep us from staying as late. Yeah.
2. Some of you had told me about goats you know - or at least someone who
has goats. I didn't write these things down because I thought I had all of
the goats I need. But I could actually use about two more goats, so remind
me of the goats you know.
See you Wednesday!

The first day of Spring is two days before my lovely wife's birthday. So since Sunday is Cheryl's birthday we're singing one of her favorite songs by singing it one of the favorite ways she like to sing it. Travis Cottrell does a beautiful arrangement of "In Christ Alone" with the chorus of "The Solid Rock" between verses 3 and 4. Here's a youtube vid of it. Practice between now and Sunday so you'll sing your best. Worship deserves your best singing - because God deserves your best.
Here's the entire worship schedule for March 22.
Oh, by the way. Just because Cheryl gets to pick some of the music on her birthday doesn't mean you get to. grin.

But don't worry... even if you can't get in touch with calendar man you can either scroll down on this blog to the "Make a Scene" Make a Scene post or you can go to http://www.hilldale.org/ and look under "Resources" for "Passion Play Rehearsal."
Either way, you'll be all up-to-date and in-the-know and you won't miss a rehearsal! How great is that?
See you tonight (if you are in group B) or tomorrow (everyone in choir).

I wouldn't call what happened a few weeks ago a "scene", but I did embarrass our waiter a few Sundays ago. We went to Logans (YUMM) for Sunday lunch with some friends. Our waiter said, "You look familiar." (Actually he was about the third person that day to say that - hooray for being on TV every week - and he said that he had been to Hilldale before.)
Anyway... he was a big strong guy, so later when he brought us our sweet tea I asked him if he had ever done any acting. He hadn't, but wanted to know why I asked. I told him I needed a few more soldiers for the Passion Play. He seemed half-way interested, or at least flattered that I'd asked, but knew he would have to work those evenings.
So technically I didn't make a "scene", but some of those with me (including my lovely wife) were thinking they might come without me next time. I figured it didn't hurt to ask.
All of that to say, "I need YOU to make a scene." Or at least a scene rehearsal or two. Here's the schedule. (I had the scedule here, but it wouldn't enlarge. Notice that if you click it - up there at the top of this post - it will enlarge where you can read it.)
The yellow part is an explanation of the scenes. The Groups (A,B,C,&D) are choir members put together for ease of staging. You'll need to check your e-mail to see which group you are in. Those nights will not be long practices, but they are important because we will walk each group through the Passion Play so you know where to stand and what to do in each scene. I know you'll make every effort to be there. Thanks.
Notice the Sunday night rehearsals immediately following the evening worship service. The youth choir will join us for a short rehearsal each of those nights so we can mix them in with the adult choir and go through a scene.
It's going to be a great Passion Play this year. Thanks for being a part of it. If you are one of our readers from across the country or around the world, fly on over and see us - April 9-11.

Our Children's Pastor, Tim Muñoz, is so excited about this project that he talked me into letting him advertise it one more Sunday. So I'll order again Monday, but THAT WILL BE IT. If you want to join us it will be on a first come, first served, basis.
Here's a picture of one of the canvases. I put a hymnal (the red book there) there in front of it so you could tell how BIG these are. It's going to be sooooo awesome working on these paintings - as families - and then seeing the finished results.
