We head out to Prince Edward Island tomorrow, and had a good rehearsal today for the event the weekend. Friends making music together is a beautiful thing. We rehearsed in St. Stephen’s Roman Catholic Church, a small (but majestic) Gothic cathedral in our town to get used to the acoustics.
I find that after a pretty thorough rehearsal there’s an ease to the event that enables you to be free to rise and fall with the corporate experience with God in the room. It’s when we’re unsure of ourselves that the music gets in our way and their way, instead of making a way for us all.
I must add that the fact that we get to lead worship in one of the top 25 concert halls in Canada is a rush. Summerside Community Church gathered the other sponsoring churches and is hosting the event. They expect much of the Island’s (home of Anne Of Green Gables) church community to attend. It should be sweet acousta-worship funbuckle.
