… but my calendar says “Easter Monday” … so I feel okay posting more Easter music. (Truth be told, I’d be posting this any time!)

Feels strange not to be playing at church tomorrow, but here’s something I sang for Piedmont Community Church. Happy Easter!

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.
