It’s Advent and we’re getting prepared. Now, all take a breath and, as Arlene used to say, “O, Holy Babe of Bethlehem, Come, take birth in our hearts.”
Such serious business at Chilmark Community Church. Not really, but we were taking our job seriously. Getting ready for Nov. 20 Church Conference.
What a fabulous concert! Pictured in front of the church, left to right, Armen Hanjian (musical saw), Lia Kahler (mezzo- soprano), Phil Dietterich (organ) and Richard Gordon (piano). Photo by Lynn Cristoffers
The concert and silent auction before it raised almost $10,000 for the Food Pantry and the All Island Clergy winter homeless shelter program.
The place was buzzing even before official 4:30 opening. Great crew!
