Scripture Reading: John the Baptist Prepares the Way
Forgive me if I’ve shared this before. Yet another story from my childhood, similar to the one that I shared last week about playing Little League baseball. When I was seven or eight years old, I couldn’t wait to join the children’s choir at my church. They were called the Crusaders Choir. I know it’s a rather morbid name for a children’s choir but I was anxious, excited to become a member of the Crusaders Choir at my home church. My brother Dave who is two years older than me joined the Crusaders Choir when he was in the third grade. So naturally, the instant I entered the third grade I was off to Saturday morning children’s choir practice. There I sat in the second row, eager to learn the songs that they were rehearsing for the one Sunday a month appearance in Sunday morning worship.
