There were probably no more than one hundred people at the Beacon Lights Singspiration held February 12 at Southeast Church. One hundred people. Not a very good representation of all our young people who could have been there. Why were no more present? It seems that in other churches in this area such hymn-sings are met with enthusiasm and sizeable crowds. Why is this not true of our song services? Was the publicity inadequate? Were the special numbers of inferior quality? Was the choice of songs poor? Or could it be that there is just no interest in a singspiration?

These singspirations are planned for people of all ages, but especially for the young people. Our young people must have a good reason for their absence. Let’s have a few more opinions expressed than we did on the last topic. I ask again, “What is the matter with our singspirations?”
