About "Muse Moments," formerly known as "Church Muse"
When I was growing up in the First Presbyterian Church in Warsaw, Indiana, I seem to recall a newsletter with the name of the "Church Mouse." I looked up the meaning of it, and there seem to be at least two explanations: one is "poor as," suggesting that the church mouse is destitute and has come in search of food; the other is "quiet as," implying that the little mouse is in awe of the house in which he resides.
The dictionary definition of "muse" as a noun is: "a person or personified force who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist." I like that because that's exactly what I am trying to do with these posts...inspire.
As a director of music at one church and organist/pianist at another, both my churches shut down for a time in them middle of March 2020. With the absence of regular music making in many of our lives, I decided to post a little musical offering, with an accompanying story about it, just to try to keep people's spirits up in the absence of the music in the church services.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed posting! Feel free to comment if you wish. Feedback is very helpful!
