It’s better for ALL of us when you mark your music and remember what you learn. For others’ sake, be considerate enough to do your part to contribute as well as you can.

History has shown that our memories are not to be trusted. We’ve worked on sections before that three weeks later sound brand new. Without notes, we forget. Hey, even WITH notes, we forget, so be as meticulous as possible about your notes.

In my mind, today is still about encouraging scores of churches across America as we minister to their pastors, sending them home refreshed and blessed by the conference music. That’s a big goal. Let’s use today well.
