Xmas Humor

Jonathan Bellman

A close friend relays the anecdote of an accomplished guitarist of his acquaintance who had done a lot of church music (I’m guessing of the Praise Music variety, probably among many other styles). This guitarist “jokingly said that some hyper-charismatic people he knows said the chord that the Holy Spirit anoints the most is “Gsus.”

His response was that “his favorites were ‘F n’ A.’”

Oddly, he hadn’t been invited back to church to play since…

Merry Xmas to those who celebrate it, and warm, cozy day to all. Intense snow here, so it’s cocoon time.
