Let Us Worship! Last evening, I participated in worship rehearsal at Harvest Christian Center. Sunday, I shall perform with the worship team for the first time. I thoroughly enjoyed last evening's rehearsal, and I am very enthusiastic about Sunday's worship! It has been many years since I have performed on stage, and I am very excited that my return to public performance will be in the form of worship offered to our Lord! Laura accompanied me last evening and took these photographs with her iPhone:
