I was at a small outdoor concert this past weekend with about 1500 other people. The sound guy, a friend of mine, looked to be having a great time while he was working. He even grooved to the music while he worked.
This afternoon, I was thinking about what I look like when I run sound verses what he looks like. He smiles. Somewhere along the line, when I was so caught up in loving my job, my focus on doing everything right turned my face from a smile to a stern look of concentration.
I’ve mentioned before that it’s not good for a congregation member to see a sound tech with a worried look on their face. We should be calm, cool, and collected even when it seems everything is going to…well, you get the idea. But what if, instead of seeing mister-serious-face, they saw me smiling while I worked?
How would I feel if I smiled more?
Just a thought.
