THE MAGNIFICAT

Found a concert on TV

That once included me….

Long time ago

An area-wide high school choral show

Forty-five years, approximately!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

      Choir—YES! In church from Junior High through adulthood an in school. Was once able to squeak out a Second Tenor in a Bass-Baritone range. But lately (past 10 or so years) couldn’t attend church praise band because of work so have lost most of my range. My wife and I, both–she was a high soprano.

        And HER COLLEGE CHOIR…went on singing tours that went to Michigan, Toronto, Washington D,C. and to the Maryland shore…over four yearly tours. Made her own choir clothes, too. One particular dress…she insisted on wearing…for my third, personal,proposal of marriage—she said yes all three times!
