Did I mention that Terry is now singing in the choir at church? He is. The choir is small and in need of more male voices. His voice adds a lot.
The choir sang a lovely piece this morning that has three parts, all singing at one time in a few places. Terry had practiced all week here at home. It turned out so well that the very reserved congregation applauded.
It was my suggestion that Terry join the choir. He sings well and can read music. The need for male singers is great. The choir is a very important part of the worship service. It all made sense that he give it a try.
For almost 40 years Terry was a cameraman at our former church as the service was broadcast on tv. He even edited the production for awhile. Terry saw it as his service to God and he enjoyed the work. It saddened him to leave that ministry, but the church service had changed so drastically that he no longer wanted to be a part of it.
There is nothing like that for him to do at our new church, but I knew Terry needed some type of work. The choir seemed a plausible place to start. I’ve read that performing music helps keep one’s brain more agile. That would be an added benefit.
