Sorry that I haven't been writing much lately.  I've been even busier than usual the last few weeks.  The increased activity has forced me to do some unpleasant thinking about time management, and priorities, and just how much I can realistically expect to accomplish in a given day or week.  I have concluded that some of my favorite activities (such as blogging) will have to go, or at least will have to be cut back by quite a bit.  Perhaps I'll post more about that later.

This week is our congregation's communion season.  While I look forward to the services and the fellowship with friends and visitors, I am of course extra busy at the moment with preparations.  I've been listening to psalm recordings as I work in the kitchen, and it occurred to me that I should post two of my favorite recordings for you to hear, since they have something to do with the upcoming communion season.

These two psalms are traditionally sung at FP communion services.  Psalm 116 is sung as communicant members gather around the Lord's Table.  Psalm 103 is sung as the communicants leave the table with thanksgiving in their hearts.

These are recordings of congregational singing, recorded a couple of years ago.  Both psalms were precented by my brother Jeshurun.

Psalm 116:1-8 to Coleshill

Psalm 103:1-7 to London New
