Sharing The Message

Laurel playing backwards for Heartland residents

Recently, I was blessed by the opportunity to share Gospel Joy with the folks at Heartland Rehabilitation of West Ashley, Charleston, SC. This was made possible in part by Dixie Land Guide Dog Users Inc. and the people of Grace United Methodist Church. Members of both Dixie Land and Grace Church joined me in bringing The Message In Word, Song and Sacrament.

Taylor singing with Laurel

It is always an honor to feature Taylor Jones Stebbins as a guest vocalist. Taylor currently serves as Vice President of Dixie Land GDU, and is one of the “outa sight” youth with whom God blesses my life. He attends Ravenel First Baptist Church, where he sings in the choir. He remembers with such enthusiasm his Baptism Sunday at Grace Church, and is always eager to share the gifts that God gives him.

Pastor Dick Broomall singing with Laurel

Pastor Dick Broomall of Grace Church joined me for a duet before leading all of us in a unique celebration of Holy Communion. Pastor Dick is a gifted musician and minister, and I am always honored to serve our Lord with him.

My thanks to Dixie Land Guide Dog Users and Grace United Methodist Church for making it possible to include the Lord’s Supper in this special service.

Even those of us who served came away from this event knowing that we had truly been fed in the Spirit.

Thank God and thank you for your ongoing prayers and support.

Stay tuned for more posts like this one. Until next time, God bless you and keep His Song in your heart.

A Little About Me

My photo
God continues to bless me with a busy and fulfilling life. Even after thirty-plus years, my music and ministry keep going and growing. Blind from birth, I am n avid user of Braille and the long, white cane, in addition to a variety of mainstream and access technology. While my blindness does not define me, I consider it to be a unique gift from God. With this gift comes my opportunity to serve as an advocate on behalf of my fellow members of the Blindness community, living and serving among blind and sighted folks of all ages, on all walks of life.
