So Crystal Cathedral handed out checks before Easter services that were lower than expected and some musicians walked out. I haven’t a clue if their departure was justified and I’m not here to argue that. BUT what someone then said I do take issue with:

Crystal Cathedral spokesman John Charles said Easter services weren’t affected by the eight people who walked out. Checks have been sent to those who performed.

“No one would have ever known they were missing,” he said of the eight.

That line … well … I think that was a poor choice of words.



  1. So much for taking the humble route.

  2. Are you talking about me or him or the musicians there? (Sorry, I’m stupid that way!)

  3. One of the horn players who walked out was a student of mine in the ’90s. The last time I saw her (a year ago) she told me about all the problems with the orchestra at Crystal Cathedral; how the musicians weren’t paid for MONTHS. They tried to accommodate the Management as best they could, but it sounds like they finally were pushed against the wall. One can take only so much!

  4. It all sounds pretty rotten, Cameron. Sad.
