For the second week in a row today I sat in the main sanctuary instead of up in the choir loft. Mostly because I was running late both times, and we are not having formal choir during this month.
You know what...I love it. I love being in the middle of people that I know and do not know (this is a big step for me!!); singing and hearing my voice make a difference; being close enough to see the faces.
I'll go back to the loft when it is time. But I love this season away.
