    DEAR JEFF, MY WIFE AND I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED PARTICIPATING IN LAST YEAR’S (2015) CELEBRATION IN CONCORD. WE LIVE IN BLACKSBURG, VA. UNFORTUNATELY, WE WILL BE TRAVELING DURING THIS YEAR’S GATHERING, AND WILL BE UNABLE TO MAKE IT.

    WE ARE LOOSELY AFFILIATED WITH THE CONGRETATIONS OF CHURCHES OF CHRIST WHICH SOME LABEL AS “INSTITUTIONAL” ( I AM OF THE OPINION THAT ALL SUCH LABELS ARE UNFORTUNATE – AND UNBIBLICAL!). THERE SEEMS TO BE LITTLE AWARENESS AMONG THESE FELLOWSHIPS OF THIS WONDERFUL HYMN CELEBRATION YOU LEAD.

    I HAVE BEEN LED TO RENEWED AWARENESS OF OUR LORD’S FERVENT PRAYER FOR UNITY RECORDED IN JOHN 17 – THE VERY TEXTUAL BASIS FOR THE IMPETUS WHICH GAVE RISE TO THE “RESTORATION MOVEMENT” IN THIS COUNTRY. I AM CONVINCED THAT ONE SMALL WAY TO BE RESPONSIVE TO HIS PRAYER PLEA IS FOR BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO COME TOGETHER IN SONG – SINCE THERE IS GREAT COMMONALITY AMONTH THE HYMNS WE SING IN WORSHIP.

    IF YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES WILL GIVE IT YOUR PRAYERFUL CONSIDERATION, WOULD IT BE FEASIBLE TO EXPAND YOUR NOTICES OF THIS (AND FUTURE) YEAR’S ANNUAL GATHERINGS TO ALL CHURCHES OF CHRIST (AND EVEN CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES)IN THE REGION, ENCOURAGING BRETHREN OF DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW TO COME TOGETHER IN SONG, AND TO FORGE RENEWED BONDS OF FELLOWSHIP? I AM CONVINCED OUR LORD WOULD BE PLEASED! SINCERELY, IN HIM, BOB THOMAS
