ICC Chamber Singers recently took time out from their music retreat to sing a great spiritual for the guests dining at the Loaves and Fish feeding ministry at the First United Methodist Church in Peoria, Ill. A Loaves and Fish volunteer told the group that they had an unexpected effect on one of their reserved weekly guests. The volunteer said that, as the students started to sing, the woman stopped eating and turned to listen with a smile on her face. The volunteer said it is the first time she has seen this guest smile in months. Thank you, ICC Chamber Singers, for spreading your joy of music!
