Even after a sanctuary renovation, the audio EQing is not that great. Bass guitar is a vague audible rumble at best, guitar tends to get lost in the mix, vocals need to be turned down, etc. I mean, the overall sound could be better and improve the "worship experience" (whatever that is) that the leaders try to provide. They could honestly make the sound more rock concert-ish and it would be an improvement.

Perhaps the Lord is calling brother Maverick into the music ministry. He certainly has a heart for that aspect of worship and I hope and pray that his wisdom is given its due attention.

Ramblinman, I appreciate your comment. If the Lord is calling, I will try to do as young Samuel did: sit here and say, "Here I am," waiting for instructions from on high. :)

But approach with thought and prayer the question of whether to tell the pastor or other leaders about "our lifestyle." :shock:

Sadly, you're right. And yet, I believe the truth is on our (the naturists') side.
