- Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
- You Are God Alone by Billy Foote

It was a great morning of worship. One of my volunteers did a great job of selecting songs that fit well together and with the message. It's been great having some of my volunteers step up and take the lead on some Sundays. Today I got to just be a part of the team and play bass. Been a while since I've gotten to do that and it was a nice change.
We also remember this day 10 years ago, September 11, 2001. As I'm sure like most of you the knowledge of this day brings back many mixed emotions. A lot of you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you found out about what had happened in New York City, then in Washington D.C. and in Pennsylvania; I know I do. For one, it is my mom's birthday. It was my senior year in high school, and I was in our music wing in a practice room preparing for college music auditions. At one point in practicing a piece, I had a question for my band director. I walked out of the practice room and down to his office only to find the office empty. His office is connected to our band room so I figured he was in there. When I walked through the door I saw him, other music teachers and fellow students crowded around the two TVs in the room with their gazes fixed on the images of the towers engulfed in flames and smoke. I don't know if I ever got my question answered, I don't even remember what it was now. The rest of that day was filled with our regular schedule of classes, but no lessons were taught. It was a school day where no one could take their eyes off the TVs. It was a day I saw a high school, faculty and students, come together and comfort one another. It was a day none of us will ever forget. We remember and honor all those that lost their lives that day, their families that were left behind, all the first responders that on that day, and every day, put their lives on the line for us, and ultimately for the men and women in the armed services that have fought and died and those that continue to fight for our freedoms in this country. THANK YOU!
