"Conflict and Amazing Grace in Church"

Proper 18 A 2014 A new family joined the church. The music director was excited, because the husband was a great tenor- and the choir needed tenors. But there was one problem- Turns out one of the basses had worked with the new tenor in a job in years past and there was some bad blood. So the new guy wouldn’t join the choir.
