Jazz musicians value bass players. Rhythm and momentum are held by the bass note, a reliable platform that supports and enriches melody. Church communities can suffer, metaphorically, from lack of a bass note. Positive legacies from people or traditions thoughtlessly discarded, unfocussed
enthusiasm eclipsing the best kind of spiritual common sense, success disastrously redefined. The result can be shrill, discordant, and often revealed as simply passing fashion. Most disturbing is a tendency to allow the cross to slide from its central, essential position in our faith. Without this particular bass note the true melody of salvation is lost. How do we achieve balance as groups and individuals? This weekend we shall ask ourselves that question. A serious subject, but lots of music and laughter as usual.
