I wrote previously that December was going to be busy.
I tell no lies! Goodness mercy me!
December is a very busy month at the church. It's the season of Advent, and there are a lot of special activities as we get together as a faith community for Christmas Eve services and for Christmas Day.
Now add to that more Christmas music shows than I have ever participated in before. I usually do 4 shows in December, either solo or with members of the our 1st Church String Band.
This year . . . 9 shows!! It seems that people want to hear Christmas music this year.
We have a big show tomorrow night for one of our larger Sunday School classes, and then we sing on Monday morning, and Friday morning. Thank goodness most of these shows do not require hauling around my PA system and mixer boards. The show tomorrow night is an "all-hands-on-deck" show with full electronics.
I am going to try and spend some time deeply thinking about why Christmas music, at least to me, seems to be in demand this year, more so than in past years. Perhaps it's simply a matter of calendaring.
Or, is it something else. We will see.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
