Have you ever thought
how weird it is that we Christians get together and sing? I mean, humans used to do a lot of singing all over the place. But it sure seems like in recent years just getting together to sing has dried up a bit in our culture. Singing is something you LISTEN to (with your private ear buds solidly in place or with your ghetto blaster screaming from your car), but something folks seem increasingly uncomfortable doing. I'm so glad that St. Paul's is a singing place - folks of all sorts there are not afraid to belt out music. And as Christians we know the secret joy that is ours: belting out that music in praise of the Blessed Trinity and joining with angels and archangels and all heaven's hosts to sing to the Lamb. Our Lutheran Church has an astonishingly rich heritage of music - of singing praises and proclaiming the great things our God has done to save us and sanctify us - may it grow ever stronger into the next generation!
