Re: Musician abuse?
I've played in my church for a long time. Sometimes you just have to go along to get along. If the congregation doesn't want loud then simply tone down a bit. You are there to contribute your talent and not to stick out like a sore thumb. You just need to kind of roll with it and be flexible. Just have a good time. Some of the things you mention you will have a different perspective on as you get a little older. For now just try to relax and keep those youthful hormones in check.
