Part of my anxiety over yesterday’s medical procedure was not knowing how it might effect practicing the organ for this Sunday’s worship. A friend reminded me to take it easy today even if I’m feeling better. So I also took it easy at the organ. I practiced meditatively, one voice line at a time, adding two, then three, then adding pedal with each. Slowly. Patiently. Prayerfully.
There once was a woman named Anne, who struggled to play the organ. She practiced each day; and pray, did she pray. ‘Til finally she could say, “I can!”
