Still alive

Believe it or not , but I am still alive.

I do however not have much to say. Waiting for the year to end.

Now that I think of it. I have one comment to make about the last while.

Last night I attended a Carrols by candlelight service. I must say , I was  actually looking forward to going and singing some Christmas Carrols .  I was really disappointed. Now firstly , the difference between a concert and leading worship is that I believe that during worship people must be able to hear themselves sing. At last night's service the music was overpoweringly loud. Those who know me will know that  I have a very strong voice , but last night , no matter what I did the music as too loud to hear myself. And I sat in the last row !!!!

The other thing that really got to me was the fact that the worship team thought that the best way for everything to fit into the allotted time frame was for them to sing really really FAST! Which meant that we sang songs like 'Hark the Herald angels sing' at double time.

The message from the minister was good and to the point , but some of the other 'items' in last nights program left much to be desired.

At this point , I am not prepared to go to next years event.
