Singing together is a powerful act. We are transformed by singing together.
By singing together of God’s beautiful creation, we shape our lives as caring creatures among other beloved creatures. By singing together the Christ story, we acknowledge the joining of holy and earthly that shapes our lives as followers of Christ. By singing together of the coming of the Holy Spirit, we connect with a greater community that transcends space and time.
We become what we sing. We should be as careful of the words that we put into our mouths as we are of the food we eat. Singing together is a powerful, life-shaping act.
