Dr. Terrence Meehan, the grandson of resident Terry Bowman, once thought he might become a Catholic priest, but later switched to medical science. During that journey, he lost most of his physical vision. Instead of a career in medicine, he went on to advanced degrees in psychiatry. He is now the lead psychiatrist for the Veterans Health Administration in Lexington with a faculty appointment at the University of Kentucky.
Dr. Meehan shared an inspiring and encouraging message on The Resurrection for a recent Village Vespers service. We are so thankful for the uplifting words from this remarkable young man!
Internationally acclaimed baritone vocalist Michael Preacely returned to Wesley Village to record this special Christmas performance for our residents to watch remotely. Accompanying him on piano was Professor Cliff Jackson. Thank you for sharing this wonderful Christmas Gift with us!
In this season of separation, many Village residents have appreciated seeing clips from past years' Village Vespers services. Resident Joyce Dickinson writes: "Our wonderful Wesley Village music made me remember just what the Village is all about, and why we are blessed to be here. In spite of the world's turmoil, our God is so good."
Here is our 2019 Christmas Vespers concert, featuring our
Village Singers and Men of Song:
Resident Sandy Wilmot, who has served as Director for these groups
since shortly after moving to the Village in 2012, describes this program:
"'Christmas is Everywhere'. Today we will celebrate Christmas around the globe by using the universal language of the world - the language of music. Music can tell us a lot about the people of a country: how they speak, how they live, what kind of melodies and rhythms they like. You will hear songs from French Canada, England, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Africa, the Caribbean and America, including Kentucky. Some songs may be unfamiliar to you but others you will be able to sing along with the choir.
We hope you will do just that."
