The Day Before Thanksgiving



Wednesday, November 26th , 2014
St. Paul & St. Andrew and B'Nai Jeshurun
86th and West End

Pat O and Esther have come to the church to rehearse for our performance at our benefit for the Interfaith Assembly for Homelessness and Housing coming up in December. We’re working on three songs, Emily Harris’ Light of then Stable, Storm Large’s Stand Up for Me, and the Stephen Foster classic, Hard Times Come Again No More. While we are rehearsing, Alex comes in looking to play the Beckstein awhile and work on her music. We invite her to join in on some harmonies with us, but she wants to just listen until she has to check in on her nanny job. The working together, figuring out harmonies feels good.

As we are singing, I see Rev. Kadisha come into the back of the sanctuary and listen to us. He catches my eye, waves.

Rev. Anh has been here to visit again and has left a bag of Korean pastries for us.

Later, a representative of one of the groups wanting to seriously negotiate with us cones in to meet with Pat O and I in the chapel. The conversation is still alive, but with multiple possible configurations. We're reviewing different options. 

And of course Sean drops by. And of course, they’ll come by to get all of his stuff out of here by Friday. Of course.

Almost time to leave to be part of the annual community Thanksgiving service at SPSA. 

It's cold and raw out

And tomorrow, of course, is Thanksgivng.
