Preaching to the Choir
My Inmates really sounded great today! We sang "Come, Come, Ye Saints." We had at least a half-dozen men who had never sung with us before this week, and they sang SO well.
Next should be a fun arrangement I made of "Master, the Tempest is Raging." I will try to get a recording of that on here for you to hear. I have to make it myself, because the prison will not allow any recording to be taken out the gate.
I still get nervous now and then, but not because I'm directing criminals, but because after 15 years of leading a women's choir, I am still getting used to men's voices!
It has sure been a lot of fun, though. I was as excited about this calling as any I've ever been given.
