Did you grow up singing hymns in church?
For me, almost nothing stirs my soul like a hymn, especially those sung in four parts with other singers who are listening carefully to each other.
When I want to go back into the past, I often listen to hymns sung by the Mennonite Hour singers, the excellent musicians whose program came to our local radio station on Sundays.
And when I visit mother at Landis Homes Retirement Community today, we often gather around to sing some of the old favorites.
One of those favorites, “The Love of God” is the one I suggested to Mother spontaneously when my college friends and I visited her. She didn’t have this one in her repertoire of well-practiced songs, and we are not trained musicians, but here we are making a joyful noise with Mother. One of the joys of singing exalted words is that you can hit a few notes off-key and still feel the spirit. 🙂
So, my New Beginning this week is to do a book video trailer. That’s certainly new for me.
