Our church is shifting the Sunday morning music practice from before the service to the evening of the Wednesday before. I imagine this is going to be passing strange for everyone involved. I’ve done it before – in a previous church, we practiced on a Friday night, then left everything setup for Sunday morning.
However, I have a problem. My writers’ group meets every second Wednesday and there is just no way I can do both. So far the solution is to alert the roster makers to which Wednesdays I am unavailable so that they avoid putting me on the matching Sunday. It seems awkward.
But there is a bigger problem. A large part of my continued presence in the church band is inertia. I’ve been wanting a break for some while. Perhaps this is the transition into just such a break.
