Serving God through song

The Whiffenpoofs of Yale are coming to Norwich tomorrow night. They will be performing at Central Baptist Church at 7:00 p.m. I know it is a Wednesday night, but it will be well worth your effort to come and hear them sing. This all male choir just returned from a European tour and you won't find talent, great music and old fashioned fun combined in a group like this every day.

I remember my college days and I have to confess that I had a wee bit too much fun and didn't always spend my time in productive ways. I always thought about me. Somewhere along the way I turned it around. As I see guys like these perform, and they perform not only for the fun of it but also to raise money for a cause, I know they have their heads on the right way.

The truth is that when you do something for someone else, like these boys are, the blessings come back to you. I am sure if you asked any of them if they thought the time they spent rehearsing, traveling and performing was worth it, they would say "yes" to a man. It shows and you will be just as blessed if you drop in.

This isn't a "Christian concert" but you will feel God's presence when you hear them sing. Who knows, you may just leave feeling called to use your gift to do something for God too.
