On December 10th my husband and I joined some friends at Chris Tomlin’s “Glory in the Highest” Christmas Concert held at the Hylton Memorial Chapel in Woodbridge, VA. Setting the holiday mood were beautiful white twinkling lights draped along the curtains that changed their color from deep red to green then blue and back again.
Chris Tomlin casually stepped on stage to lead everyone in the popular Christmas carol “O Come, All Ye Faithful” and the concert began. Chris is small in stature but boundless in energy. He radiates the joy he sings about in “Joy to the World” and encourages others to rejoice with “My Soul Magnifies the Lord.” When he sang “Emmanuel (Hallowed Manger Ground)” the true meaning of Christmas was made clear. A babe was born with the purpose of redeeming mankind.
Chris continued to sing seasonal and worship songs like “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “O Holy Night,” “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone),” and “Glory in the Highest.”
It was uplifting and refreshing to celebrate the true reason for the season. Merry Christmas! God bless us, everyone.
