Well, I tell you, funny things happen . . .
It's like beer. The brewer works really hard to get the conditions right for the yeast. The yeast does all the real work. If the brewer doesn't clean one humble little piece of equipment or gets the PH of the water too far off, or doesn't cook the wort long enough, or pitches the yeat at too high a tmperature, the beer comes out not quite right. The cleaning and sanitizing is the most important part of brewing. Without it, all the equipment will be tainted by outside materials which will destroy the beer (sometimes the beer will get really nasty stringy jelly things floating in it and a rank smell). I kind of think of the life of a church as the same thing. Prayer is like the cleaning and sanitizing step. A church can have a great choir, preaching, an in-house iconographer and a giant church, but if the church doesn't have prayer . . . well, I *hope* it won't get really nasty stringy jelly things floating in it and a rank smell.
My wife and I were Byzantine Catholic. The priest heard my wife singing and asked her to join the choir. (This is actually a strange story in and of itself as my wife couldn't sing very well until . . . that's another story). The choir didn't like this much (they had a weird, closed group, but that's another, much less interesting story). At any rate, she was there for a while and, when a new priest came and the old choir director moved, he asked her to be choir director. Because of a multiplicity of issues I won't get into, we decided that we should become Orthodox.
So, for some reason, we went to the local Serbian Orthodox church. Most of it was in Slavonic or Serbian and we both promised ourselves that we were not going to get involved except to be good parishoners. Things happened, we got asked to do some things that we didn't really want to do (and we did them because we wanted to be good parishoners), and, the next thing you know, my wife is directing the choir again. She really didn't want to, but that's the way it went.
You don't have to be up front either. You could end up being the treasurer (don't do it! it's the most dangerous job in the world!) or the teacher of a class or cooking food for special dinners. It could be that it's your prayers that are needed! After all, it's the prayerful people that keep our churches running.
St. Nicholai of Ochrid and Zica said, "Singers, it is not your singing that matters but the Lord who listens."
So be patient. If you are open to serve, God will use you in the ways He has planned. Of course you may not *want* to do what he has planned, but that's another issue.
