Music is powerful. Something about music helps us express how we’re feeling in a way that simple words cannot. Most of the psalms are songs, our lives are shaped by hymns and songs each day. Tonight we were supposed to have a music service led by the choir, so I want you to have some sort of experience with music today. I put together a playlist on youtube that you can watch on your computer or just listen to on your phone. You may see some people you know sprinkled in between songs, but these have all been recommended by church members who love music. If you need help getting it to work let me know! If you have a favorite song, please share it with us! We’d love to connect through music even as we are apart.
Our prayer today:
Our praises join with the songs of heavenly choirs and the music of the universe.
May these songs encourage our songs, that we might sing our praise and glorify your name.
We praise you, O God, with trumpet sound; we praise you with strings and pipes!
Trusting in Jesus Christ, we dedicate our lives in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
