One of my favorite events of the year is here! On the Wednesday evening before Halloween, our organist and choirmaster, Robert Fasol, puts on a scary organ concert. He takes some fun “not-so-scary” tunes and plays them on the organ. Together with the video and special lighting talents of the Communications Team, it is a memorable evening! One of the reasons I love it is because it is so creative. There aren’t too many people who crave organ music and yet, there will be a great crowd tonight. That is because Robert is phenomenally talented and whatever genre of music he plays – he plays incredibly well. As a family of faith we are blessed because of his musical ability but also because of his desire to help connect people to God. He does that every Sunday morning in worship but also in serving at weddings and funerals, and in nights like tonight – where he helps people to have fun.
What are the gifts you have and how can you use them in a new creative way? I can’t imagine that Robert went to college dreaming of the day that he could play spooky organ music. But when the day came, he was ready with the idea, the talent, and ingenuity.
