that's something, at least

we'll see what happens now

I've been diligently working on some arranging for Good Friday. Yes, already. I only had about 3 weeks after Christmas to breathe and recover before diving right in again for Lent and Easter. Such is the life of a church musician. But despite all the complaining I do, I so love my job. That is something I am proud to say. Really, there's nothing I would rather do. While at home, I spend most of my time in front of a score laying out parts for whatever assortment of musicians have come forward expressing a desire to perform at any given time. And, while at work, what I do makes people feel good. Every time. Myself included.

I'm curious: what is your job? I mean, I get that your a musician. But, how does the church fit in? Are you a believer?

I'm the Director of Music at a Lutheran church - choir, bells, organ, chamber ensembles, etc. I do it all. As for the believer part, well, let's just say that I'm at an interesting place in my spiritual journey.
