HOLIDAY MUSIC CONCERT AT ST. PAUL LUTHERAN CHURCHSt. Paul Lutheran Church will host internationally known guitarist/composer Peter Griggs in a concert, “Music For An Old English Christmas,” on Sunday December 16, 2018 at 4 p.m. Mr. Griggs will perform a selection of traditional English music associated with the Christmas season, including wassailing songs, Morris dances and ballads such as the New Years version of “Greensleeves.”Wassailing songs were originally sung during the Christmas season to ensure the fertility of fields and orchards, while Morris (originally “Moorish’) dances were performed in rural England as part of traditional Twelfth Night celebrations. Mr. Griggs accompanies himself on guitar and also performs several pieces on the laud, a 12-string folk lute.Peter Griggs has presented more than 500 solo guitar concerts throughout the USA, Germany, United Kingdom, France, the Low Countries, Scandinavia and eastern Europe at art centers, festivals, museums, churches, jazz clubs and other venues. His recordings are available on Folkways Records, Music Of The World, Treecastle Music and CD Baby. He was based for more than ten years in Dusseldorf, Germany and now resides in Brooklyn, New York.Critics in Germany and the United Kingdom have hailed Griggs as “a master of expressive sounds” known for his “sizzling guitar playing” and “sophisticated and highly enjoyable” programs. Germany’s Bergische Morning Post put it this way: “an almost unbelievable talent — Peter Griggs performs magic!”St. Paul Lutheran Church is located at 134 Main Street in Terryville CT 06786.

Please note: We stand with many in the faith community – including His Holiness Pope Francis, The Dali Lama, Presiding ELCA Bishop Elizabeth Eaton – who are calling us to remember that we who call ourselves Christian are not to condemn another because of their faith or ethnicity. As a nation of immigrants, we proudly endorse the heritage of this land, proclaiming with Emma Lazurus the words emblazoned on the Statue of Liberty:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Remember God only asks for 10% off the top – won’t you consider tithing this year?
