More Concern to Person than to Activity

Standard

You know what, by years of service I realise something.

My concerns are swiftly changed, from activities to people.

Back on my previous years, I always chosen as part of the Church Committee. Serve as the chair or this or that department.  My mind is working harder than a clock to think what the best activities to make so the goals of having everyone involved, having the need served, having the children learned, having the youth growth is achieved. While other church members usually sit down and talk after the sermon, I would go up or inside or wherever the activities is conducted. To arrange, manage, teach, make things happen and the energy rolled. I don’t give myself time to chat, to share news and gossips or else may happen during that idle time.

But after 18 years, I started to think to myself. I don’t really have a friend from the church members. First, because we keep on moving on after two or three years. Second, because maybe I don’t really open up. I have the habit to keep distance from everyone. They can come to chat, to talk, to pour their heart. But only them. I never did so. If I need to chat, talk or pour my heart I went to my husband or the heavenly God Himself. If I talked to my close friend none of them share similar experience.  I don’t really talk to other pastor’s wife as the nature of relationship is also odd.

So why I start to concern about people? Because I care about me. What if, among these people to appear to be happy and contented, they actually bore a big burden. Like me? And they have nobody to pour their heart to.  Like me?

 

Farewell

Standard

I will miss them so too much.  God bless them to be blessing to others through their music, through their spirit and evangelistic passion.  May God brought them up and far and beyond to the best place, granted them with their wish in their study and future.

I had such a great 3 growing years with them.  Mentally and spiritually.

Tridaya Violin to Kota Legenda

Standard

Di bulan January 2015, grup Tridaya violin diundang oleh Jemaat Kota Legenda untuk “konser” di acara PA.  Tentu saja kami semangat! The group menyiapkan sekitar 1o lagu instrumental dengan biola, 1 lagu dengan nyanyian oleh Cia, dan sebuah drama musikal yang pernah dipentaskan di gereja sebelumnya.

Lebih banyak yang terlibat bermain biola saat konser yang ini daripada waktu acara pernikahan, sehingga suara biola lebih terdengar harmonisasinya. Setiap selesai satu lagu, mic diambil alih oleh anak yang lain dan menyebutkan judul lagu berikutnya yang akan dimainkan beserta sedikit kesaksian mengenai makna lagu tersebut.

Tridaya Violin

Standard

Tiga tahun terakhir ini saya fokus untuk mengajar para remaja bermain biola.  Di awal kami ditempatkan di jemaat ini, jujur saja saya tidak punya mimpi akan memimpin sebuah ensemble biola. Beli biola menjadi tantangan tersendiri, karena saya tahu tidak semua orang suka “membuang” uang untuk investasi macam begini. Ajaibnya, animo para orang tua dan anak-anak cukup tinggi. Hampir semua yang berada di kategori remaja 12 tahun ke atas bergabung untuk belajar.

Dari sekian banyak ada beberapa yang drop, tidak sanggup melanjutkan hingga akhir. Namun yang melanjutkan hingga hari ini, saya bisa pastikan permainan mereka sudah mulai “jadi”. Fingering nya tidak fals lagi dan bowing nya mulai berbentuk.
