SCRIPTURE READING FOR NEXT SUNDAY MARCH 22: John 9: 1-41. Where in our lives have we been blind? How have we come to see more clearly? Where may there yet be blindness in our lives now?
WHY DO WE DO IT IN WORSHIP? Anthems and Solos. Music can communicate what words often cannot. Words added to music can communicate what words on their own cannot. The power of combining words and music in worship is immense. Anthems and solos in worship are intended to complement the overall theme of worship and the experience of “God” in worship. We are very fortunate in this congregation to have a choir and program that takes music so seriously and the sacred power of music so seriously. How important is the musical component of worship in your worship experience?
