shoutin' time ...

I may have covered this topic on this blog before, but it bears repeating ... I love music.  Specifically, I love the music of the Church.  I believe that it is one of the best gifts that God has given to the Church.  It is only in recent years that I have come to understand the power of music and how we as Christians can and should worship through music.  For years, I saw the music part of a worship service more for entertainment than worship.  Now, one of my favorite parts of singing in the choir on Sunday mornings is seeing the worship that is in the hearts of the congregation reflected on their faces.  I can't explain it and it may sound strange to you, but it lifts my heart and encourages me in ways that I just don't have words to describe.

With all that said, I want to share a song that we are practicing in choir.  I don't think I had ever heard this song before a few weeks ago and I know that I had never heard of this group that is singing in the video, but it is a great song and this group is amazing ...

...our choir won't be living up to that performance, but we will worship our Savior when we sing it and really, that is all that matters.

Continuing to count the innumerable blessings ...

The gift of music

Worship, in spirit and in truth

Witnessing the moving of the Holy Spirit


Being challenged to move out of my comfort zone, even when my fear is strong


Children singing

Worship...I will accept the challenge of looking at worship in a new way tomorrow.
