Thank you to the Trinity Lutheran Church for the wonderful annual Epiphany Festival on Sunday evening. There is so much variety of music from the McPherson Community Brass Choir as the prelude to the bell ringers, the choirs, readers, duets on piano and instrumental with piano, from the children to adults, the Magi bringing gifts to baby Jesus to the final bell of Christmas, which ends the Christmas season and brings us into the New Year.

There are hours and hours of work in preparation, and I daresay there were more participants than audience.

In years past, there were times when there was a “full house.” I would like to see more community participation for such a wonderful program each year.
