“Your predecessor was able to…”

The church comment card read…

[The name of my predecessor] was able to mix tempos & keep meaning.


Thank you for the comparison of me to my predecessor. Before leaving my predecessor gave me an envelope. He said if I started getting comment cards from you with a comparison like this that I should open the envelope and follow its instructions. After receving your comment card, I opened the envelope. The message inside read, “Prepare an envelope.”

Instead this reply is better…

I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. It’s heartening to hear that {insert the name of predecessor} was skillful mixing of tempos added a meaningful dimension to the worship experience.

I recieve value from your input, and I assure you that your comments will be considered as we continue to curate and craft worship services. If you have any more insights or suggestions, feel free to share them. Your perspective is valuable.
