It was Wednesday night and it was the first advent service of the season. Billy was excited because his school choir was going to sing at this evening’s service. Billy was in third grade at Peace Lutheran church and school. "Of The Father's Love Begotten" was one of the hymns that his choir was practicing for their Christmas Program that was in a few weeks. They were going to sing this hymn at tonight’s service. Billy teacher, Jane, an old, grey haired women, had been directing the children’s choirs for 34 years. She wanted the kids to be there by 6:30 so they could get there gown on and practice.

”Hey Billy, you need to put on gown number 34 and don't forget your red ribbon," his choir director said.

At the back of the classroom there is a wooden rack that had white gowns lined up right to left. "Thirty two, thirty three, thirty four, there it is," Billy said as he was looking for his gown.

He hurriedly took it off of the hanger and put it over his head. Then he runs to the box where the red ribbons are and puts it around his neck and clips it to the gown.

Fred, the organist, a tall man with dark hair, walked into the room and sat on the piano bench.

"Kids you need to get lined up in your rows we need to practice," said the choir director.

The song they were going to be doing actually was going to be played on the piano. Fred starts playing and Jane starts to direct the kids.

"Of the father's-----," as the kids sung.

The kids just finished the fifth stanza.

"You guys did a good job, I don't think we need to practice anymore. Thank you Fred," said Jane.

Then Fred nods his head and walks out of the room.

**********************************************************************************

We now jump to the middle of the service, after the Old Testament reading. It was now time to do it for real; Billy was getting nervous as the choir director stood up in front of the group. Billy had never felt comfortable performing in front of people. He had this woozy feeling in his stomach.The Organist walked over from the organ and sat on the piano bench. The choir director waved her hands in the air so that Fred could get the beat.

The piano started to play and the kids started to sing "Of our Father's-----evermore and evermore," as that ended the last verse.

"Whew, I am glad that is over," as Billy thought to himself. The choir sat down and the service continued. It was another well-done performance by Billy.
