Ours is very similar NanKate in as much that we are very modern in what we do. We don’t “do” Jerusalem at every meeting but we were taught it by a choir leader and we sing it occasionally . It is, as you say, very rousing. Our meetings are anything but typical. Over the last months we’ve had an artist night, involving drawing a nude man, burlesque dancing, 20’s night etc. It would make some of the traditionalists’ hair stand on end.
But sadly we still have a few of those “it’s my way or the highway” bossy boots on the committee.
I see that there are a few Good morning threads this morning. I can’t see why whoever’s up first starts one and everyone else follows. But that’s just me.
