- Last October, I was asked/called to teach the music in primary at church.
- I was not at all pleased with this opportunity to learn and grow.
- I have hated Halloween as long as I can remember, and I strive to avoid the trappings of the holiday as much as I possibly can.
I love kids, but I love them best in groups of one, so being the primary chorister was not something I ever aspired to. But those little monsters have weaseled their way into my cold, cold heart. And it didn't even take a full year. Their high, sweet, often dissonant voices have melted my resolve. I couldn't wait to see them dressed up as green beans, puppies, pastries, and firemen.
Which is why I went to the trunk or treat this year.
But I still did not dress up. Because there is no such thing as mandatory fun.
