We were a little nervous, but it was more excitement than nerves. We dropped right into the song, plowing through the verse, chorus and so on. It felt really good to be singing a new song, but something just was just not right.
When I looked at the congregation, they were all standing there, with their arms folded and a blank stare on each of their faces. Even the six year old boy on the front row had his arms folded! It was appalling!
Thankfully, I woke up from this dream and realized it wasn’t real.
We have had some interesting experiences introducing new songs, but nothing quite that drastic!
