We are experiencing unprecedented times of financial strain. Everyone, every family, every business, every church is having difficulty meeting budget and/or making ends meet. People are being laid off by the thousands -- with no end in sight, at least in the near future. Creator magazine has been inundated with e-mails and letters from church musicians all over the United States wanting to leave their churches for greener pastures. Some are feeling pressure to leave, even if there is no grass in sight. Others are being asked to cut back to part time or are being dismissed because offerings have decreased and times in the church are tough.
