I've just returned from Hell.

Otherwise known as Choir Practice with the Praise Team. We're doing a special concert next week (a benefit for the Haitian orphanage our church supports)...and half the music is Praise Team stuff that their leader wrote. It's crap as usual. Nothing but wailing and bad guitar chords. I had a headache before the rehearsal was over!

We're doing some wonderful music, but we'll be drowned out by the Praise people. And the choir director thinks it's all wonderful and that we should work together more often. In other words, no traditional music whenever we have to share the service music with them. Our director is going deaf, I swear to God.

I really wanted to leave the choir room. I was almost in tears when I got home. I have to keep saying to myself, "It's for a good cause, it's for a good cause, it's for a good cause...we're singing for God, not for the Praise Team." If the director plans another joint concert, I will tell him I won't be singing in it.

Some of the Praise singers are actually good...too bad no one can hear them over the noise.
