and now for something on a slightly lighter note

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

Far into the mountains, live a group of monks, dedicated to learning and following the ways of God.  Eschewing worldly goods, and having given vows of silence, wearing only coarse robes, they are trying however to follow the word of the bible and in an effort to raise a joyful noise unto the lord, they bring you their version of the Handel's Messiah.


Ladies and Gentlemen, the Silent Monks.

Alan - I guess if you are the "HE" and "OF" monk ... then this is a real work out!  Maybe that's why "he" looks so skinny!  Thanks for sharing!

Hallelujia! And you know what's cool about this? Those kids had to actually LEARN The Messiah Hallelujiah chorus. More than I can say.
