Notes from the Music Director
Dear friends in Christ,
When they were little, our daughters loved to listen to their music. (They still do, but using earbuds more often now!) Whether we were in the car or at home, we would have a CD, radio, or musical video going a large percentage of the time. After listening to these songs over and over I would always invariably get one song “stuck” in my head for the rest of the evening. It could even be a little annoying, especially when I was trying to get to sleep, and all I could think about is “Y-M-C-A!”
I often hear of a similar situation when someone tells me that they have had a song stuck in their head -- one that we have recently used in worship. Maybe you’ve had this happen to you. I think God sometimes uses our musical memory to help us along on our journey. Hearing the words of a meaningful song in your head can be a gentle reminder of God’s presence in your life. It can also serve as a prayer during a difficult time. When I was having a particularly bad day recently, my mind kept singing, “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, rejoice!” Sometimes annoying, yes, but true!
It is my hope that the songs we sing in worship DO stick in your head from time to time. Let me know if they do. They can be wonderful remembrances of God’s love in your life. (I just hope that they don’t keep you awake at night!)
See you in worship!
“God be in my head and in my understanding; God be in mine eyes and in my looking; God be in my mouth and in my speaking; God be in my heart and in my thinking.” Book of Hours, 1514.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14
Hope to see you in worship!
Yours in HIM,
Director of Music
