Hardly To Be Discerned

“Good and evil grow up together in the field of this world almost inseparably, and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil, and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed upon Psyche as an incessant labor to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed.” – John Milton, Areopagitica, 1644

Choir goes bananas while retreating November 15, 2008

Filed under: Elizabeth's escapades!,Friends — Elizabeth @ 19:57

   Today our church choir had a “retreat”; we bravely stood, sat and sang through 6 hours of rehearsal for the Christmas concert. The rehearsal was very effective and much needed, and peppered throughout the day were hilarious stories told by music pastor Todd and various singers, testimonies of new choir members, lunch, and the weirdest game I have every played.

  Seriously, it was weird. “Push the Banana.” Four teams (soprano, alto, tenor, bass), each person ties a sash around their waist; hanging on a string from the sash to the ground is a banana, and the goal is to use the suspended banana to get a ping-pong ball on the floor across a certain line and the end of the room (no hands are allowed to guide the string/banana).  Mercifully, at that point the thoroughly humiliated competitor can pick up the ball and run back to the line.  Casualties amounted to a few bananas and one ping-pong ball which did not survive the proceedings due to wayward players stomping on them.
