for the holidays this year, i travelled to a suburb city of nashville, brentwood, about 25 minutes south of the music city my daughter and her family recently moved there to be closer to her husband's office and for the girls to be enrolled in a popular school system. my flight was on what seemed like a dragonfly it was so small. luckily, it went without incident and i arrived on time and was greeted by my son-in-law and 2 year old grandson. after dinner of shrimp and grits, we were off to a christmas eve service at the largest church i have ever visited. wow. the sanctuary was round with balconies and a 150 plus choir and an orchestra. there were 8 ministers and many acolytes as well as soloists and a trio of high school singers. we sang christmas songs while my grandchildren licked lollipops to stay contented. the highlight of the evening was the lighting of the individual candles each of us was handed as we entered. after the candles were lit, we all stood, held the candles high and sang silent night. imagine the sight...2,000 glowing candles and the people singing that beautiful song.
