Big Event Sunday

We had a larger than normal crowd in worship this morning. Many were people who were already in town for the Big Event this evening. I had 12 children for the children's sermon-- I haven't had that many all summer. The singing was magnificent. We opened with this hymn:

The congregation loves it, and we did sing parts for it. We closed with this hymn, again in parts:

It's going to be an emotional day. I'm collecting lots of hugs from people I see once a year and who are telling me how sorry they are to see me leaving. I don't know how I'm going to pronounce the benediction after we close with this hymn tonight.
