“In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don't.”
"The music is always too loud when we go to church!" said Beverly. She first noticed how loud the music was when she came back from getting grape juice out of the refrigerator to prepare communion. She later explained, "I didn't want to miss anything so I asked Jeffery, my husband, to turn it up while I was in the kitchen. When I came back into the living room I thought I was going to go deaf it was so loud. Someone needed to tell the pastor, so I texted him right away!"
We reached out to the pastor to get his comments and he simply replied, "The volume never changed and seemed a little quiet where I was standing. I couldn't respond to the 5 texts I received all saying basically the same thing because I was about to get up and preach."
The pastor did promise to talk to the sound technicians and make sure they were staying within the decibel range required by the worship policies that were written by the worship committee in 1983. He also suggested they check the volume on their computer.
