1 Chronicles 6:32 (NRSV)

32 They ministered with song before the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, until Solomon had built the house of the Lord in Jerusalem; and they performed their service in due order.

After dinner was served to all in attendance, the party adjourned to the Sanctuary and to the music of the hand-bells, the organ and piano; and  voices were lifted toward heaven in celebration of Advent, Christmas, New Years, and one more year among family, friends, and friends we never knew we had.
