My Life and Faith: Julia Simms

Posted: September 28, 2016

The most prominent point in Julia Simms’ faith happened not on a Sunday morning, but in a quiet and dimly lit Sanctuary on a weekday. Julia had been encouraged to play piano during communion and was in the church to practice on the Sanctuary’s big Steinway piano. Alone in front of the piano with sunlight streaming through the windows, Julia truly felt God’s presence through the music and in the room, watching and soaring over her like a giant, heavenly eagle. She remembers it as “a feeling that could move the soul.”
