Last night we went to church to record a service for local radio, Radio Merseyside. It felt a little strange, because the service we were recording was the service which is going to be broadcast on Easter Sunday, and it felt really strange to be singing "Jesus Christ is risen today" in the middle of Lent. But once you got past that it was a really good event, the recording went very smoothly compared with other events of this kind that I've been involved in and it was really, really joyful, just like a proper Easter morning!

When I got home I finished some paintings I started earlier in the day. There is an Easter picture which I might post when it is dry enough to scan. I might even make it into an Easter icon for lj, who knows!

Radio
Well, at least it was a radio programme, so they didn't miss the sun pouring in through the windows. That is, if it turns out sunny on Easter Sunday. It might not be long until you can only hear this sort of broadcast on a radio, cos the usual Songs of Praise appears to get shorter every season. It is all over the place regards time too. They seem to slot it in earlier and earlier, just to please the scheduled programmes for later. Getting to the stage where they can only sing the 1st and last verse of the hymns. Although I guess the way it is going, there will be one verse from each hymn - on the weeks were they allow a hymn. I best stop here, obviously still got my grumpy morning head on. I'd much rather sing one hymn right the way through, that the 1st and last verse of a few. Then again, the answer in my own hands, if I actually went to church instead of watching it on TV. Yes, I'm grumpy - I'm going to sign off here and go get more coffee!

Re: Radio
We sang all the verses of all the hymns! You can listen to the service at about 8.15am on Radio Merseyside on Easter Day (and you'd still have time to get to a real service too!!!)

Coffee next week?

Ooh, an Easter icon sounds cool! Can't wait to see it.
