One thing I forgot to mention that happened Sunday. Sam and I were home teaching Bro. Hill, who is our choir director, and I mentioned that we’d miss choir practice this coming Sunday because we’re going to Houston for Brennan’s baptism. He asked what part of Houston, and I said Clear Lake, and mentioned that I graduated from Clear Lake High School. He asked what year, and when I told him 1975 he asked, “Did you know Milton Pullen?”
“Of course!” I said, “He was our choir director.”
Well, it turns out Bro. Hill was in Mr. Pullen’s first choir when he started teaching right out of college. Bro. Hill hadn’t done anything with music before, but he went on to become a professional opera singer and at one time was a vocal coach for the Tabernacle Choir. Apparently Mr. Pullen has been teaching at the college level, but he’s retiring at the end of this semester. Bro. Hill is going to sing a solo at his final concert next month.
It is indeed a small world.
