Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

The Best Memories Still Need Reminding

August 20th, 2017


I feel so proud of myself when I remember something that my wife can’t remember. So proud. I say, “Am I the only one around here that remembers anything? MAN!”

It’s funny because it’s preposterous. My wife remembers what she ate the first time she met her biological family. Or any time. Ever. That’s why I’m proud.

But even the best memories need to be reminded of old things. That’s what these notes are for.

Please remember your commitment to choir and all that entails as a leader in the music ministry—faithfulness, personal conduct and personal appearance.

If you would like a copy of the Choir Commitment Form that all new members receive, let me know. It encourages faithfulness to God and to rehearsals.

The “personal appearance” agreement is more understood than written. No one wants to police people’s dress, so our prayer is that a tactful reminder will suffice.

Modesty. Please keep personal modesty at a high standard. The lowest standard is the birthday suit. Next is Prov. 7:10 attire. Then we increasingly grow more modest, until we’re Muslim or Holy Reverend Mothers. Where is the line?

Biblically, nakedness includes not only the obvious parts, but also covering the thighs. Where does the thigh start? I’m not sure. Maybe at the knee (which is why we encourage knee-length skirts and dresses). The angle of the congregation sitting and looking up at the platform exacerbates the problem, so we ask that you are extra-careful when on the platform.

We ask full coverage on the bottom, and full coverage on the top. Many necklines that swoop, dip, or “V” are immodest, regardless of how you are built. Maintain modesty by avoiding anything that might reveal cleavage.
