Newsletter – September 2016
From Brian Holsopple, Interim Music Director
"It's deja vous all over again!" - Yogi Berra
You know it seems like the last time I started this job I felt younger. Oh wait!...I was! I'd like to say I'm older and wiser now, but I guess I'll have to settle for batting .500 on that. And I'll let you guess which half.
In many ways I feel right at home. No problem plopping down in that chair up in the chancel, though I may be plopping a little harder these days. All right, enough about age and aging. I look forward to whatever work the Big Guy has in mind for me and us here. I love this church and the people in it, which is pretty much saying the same thing.
Regarding Chancel Choir, we will begin regular Wednesday night rehearsals on September 7th at 7:30 pm in (where else?) the choir room. Anyone interested is cheerfully invited to show up. Any who just wants to try it out is welcome to come sit with us in the chancel on Sundays prior to that and just "try us out." No contracts, no pressure. Just see what it's like "up there.”
As for Handbell Choir, we will not begin rehearsals until about mid-October with the coming holidays in mind. I would, however, like to meet with members before then. And again, anyone interested in swinging with us just grab hold of me (gently...I bruise!) on a Sunday and let me know.
Has it really been nine years since I "retired"?! Well, like Johnny Carson used to say, "Time flies when you're runnin' for your life!"
Looking forward to serving God, Karen, and this congregation in whatever way I can.
