I am just now wrapping up my 18-day trip to Wisconsin. I've mostly played at churches in the Appleton, Green Bay and Manitowoc areas. We have been breaking weather records for high temperatures all last week. I brought every stitch of winter clothing I own on this trip and haven't needed it at all!
I have been asked to present my Advent song service just about everywhere I've played on this trip and it has been very well received. I've come to love it also. The many, many Bible verses about Advent and a wonderful hymn added to it make it a very joyful event. The song service is called "While We Wait, We Hope. It was written by Pastor James Krueger who serves Immanuel Lutheran Church up in Medford, Wisconsin. He is currently writing me a Lenten song service which will be called "Evidence of His Love." I'm excited to be presenting that in Nevada and Arizona in February.
One enjoyable high point of this trip was watching the Packers beat the Cowboys last Sunday with Pastor Brett Nauman and his family.
