Short answer: because I'm already off the schedule for the following two weeks anyway thanks to a downtown photoshoot one Sunday and recovering from a wedding the next. And I'm done. I was ready to quit a couple weeks ago, and not in a nice manner. I wouldn't be playing this Sunday, but that team member who's leaving is somewhere between a little sister and a step-daughter; she'll kill me if I don't play.Thunktank wrote: ↑Tue Jun 13, 2017 4:08 pmYou didn't ask for advice, so disregard mine if you don't like it. How about being willing to play one more week after breaking the news Sunday after the second service? Then you won't be jerk.Skip wrote: ↑Tue Jun 13, 2017 12:56 pmSo, I still haven't told the worship director at church that this coming Sunday will be my last playing for him. That also happens to be the last day for one of our team members who does her own fair share of leading and is quite loved by the congregation. She's moving to Alaska and I didn't/don't want to steal any of the attention away from her last Sunday here. At this rate, I won't be telling him until after the second service on Sunday, which may or may not be a jerk move, but it is what it is. Meanwhile, my wife and a friend of ours checked out a church a few miles away that they liked enough on first sight to want to go back and stay. It just so happens that a young lady with whom I used to play at my current church is their director of worship. She and I chatted briefly and, if all goes according to plan, she'll throw me in the rotation starting in July.
"What would Jerry do? - He'd play."
"Jerry would play! - He would play!"
