I was there. I didn't notice the faltering in pitches or anything. Maybe I was too far back to hear it, but it sounded fine. I love the tune (as you know!) and the text. It sounded great and was a great pick appropriate to the day's occasion (communion Sunday).

And failure sucks. It sucks to feel like you're failing even if you aren't. "The experience seemed to pull me back to a time in my life when music making was more high-stakes: less about drawing people together in community, and more about perfect and polished performance." I don't think the two are necessarily mutually exclusively, especially when there is pushback! I am constantly worried not that the sounds are going to be perfect, but that they aren't going to have any more ammo to use against what's going on.

You're good at what you do.
