Just back from our concert at South Shore Ministries in Thornville, OH.  Wow!  They were very warm, gracious, and welcoming hosts.  We arrived early to set up and do a sound check.  They rearranged the stage platforms to suit our needs and worked with arranging and balancing the microphones to let us sound our best.  Despite the snow, they had 85 attendees!  We played a 45 minute Christmas set, featuring songs from “Christmas Rose” and some interactive sing alongs.  They were the best “12 Days of Christmas” singers ever!!  Then there was an intermission featuring Scottish desserts – 3 kinds of pudding (bread pudding, chocolate, and butterscotch) and butter cookies.  Then we did a 45 minute Celtic set.  Throughout the performance, they had a slide show on the wall above us.  As we were finishing “The Fields of Athenry,” Pastor Doug opened the sanctuary doors.  Through the foyer, I could see the Christmas tree lights and the glistening snow.  It was so beautiful! 

It is Evening Rose’s practice to donate a portion of our CD sales back to church organizations when we perform for them.  Pastor Doug said that they were very blessed right now and told us to donate it to a charity in Lancaster, so we will be able to make a donation to the Food Pantry on their behalf. 

Then a white-knuckle drive home…. but it was worth it!  If you are looking for a place to worship or just need a friendly listener, visit Pastor Doug Lynn as South Shore Ministries!
