Since we have sung it in one or two previous years it didn't need too much polishing, and I think, we did it justice.
The same however, cannot be said for the rest of the service. For me and for quite a few others, it was perhaps the least satisfying Palm Sunday ever.
Our current incumbent is a horse of quite a different colour from the previous one/ones.
By no means everyones' first choice in style and with it seems, little regard for the traditions of our particular church he dithers, changes things at the last moment, leaves others to organise and then steps in and alters things at the last second.
The result being a chaotic mish/mash of what has gone before and totally new ideas.
There is no way we can influence him or persuade him to simply follow what has gone before, nor is it our place to do so, but, these days I leave church on Sunday feeling ruffled and irritated and thoroughly bad-tempered. This I'm sure is not the way to start the new week.
Either I need a magic wand or a personality replacement so that I can happily accept this wholly alien
approach to prayer.
Suggestions welcome. (I think) !!
