    I will be attending a service in the future with my family. There is no instrument that comes near the magnificence of the human voice, much less a choir of them: God, humble carpenter’s son and Master Craftsman. The sounds that erupt from these services are truly a testament to His handiwork!! Thank you for continuing the tradition.
