Hank and Jean Glass
A warm "Hello" to our new church family from the Glasses. Easter lilies are blooming in our yard in Saint Louis reminding us of the celebration of Christ's Resurrection. We are excited as we think of joining your fellowship. "Be filled with the Spirit...Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs." (Ephesians 5:19)
Let me introduce the Glasses. I am Hank, your new Minister of Music/Organist, and my wonderful wife is Jean. We are both thrilled to be coming to Saint Michael's Church. Music has been my lifetime passion: teaching choral music in the public schools of the Saint Louis area, leading choir and organ studies at the local university and directing musical worship in area churches.
Music has been fascinating and amazing to me all of my life. Jean has enjoyed her role as homemaker and supporter for our now grown children, Sarah and Henry III, and me. Jeanie loves the out-of-doors, hiking, photography and enjoys fine art as another of life's great adventures.
We are avid gardeners spending many fulfilling hours developing our flower garden at our present home. Travel and camping trips are wonderful fun for us. We have recently returned from a remarkable trip to Turkey. We love hanging out with dear family and friends, with game playing and hilarity on our "must do" list.
The lilies and Christ's Resurrection are indeed significant to our faith community. We are all bound together as a worshiping family, staff and musicians, under the umbrella of the God-given gift of music. Jeanie and I are excited as we think of joining in new fellowship with you at Saint Michael's. Psalm 21:13-14, "Be exalted, Oh Lord, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might."
