“I do a medley of hymns in all my sets, whether I’m in an arena, in a theater, in an amusement park.” ~Yolanda Adams<
Songs have power beyond words. Songs put words into rhythm. When words are lost, songs have staying power. This Sunday at MCCDC we will sing our hearts full and sing our hearts out. Last Sunday, we invited you to let us know your favorite hymns. MCCDC has a lot of favorite hymns! We’ll sing many of them this Sunday.
Our scriptures for Sunday convey the spiritual potency of music. Psalm 95: 1-7 begins with this soaring invitation: “O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!” Ephesians 5: 18-20 echoes the invitation of the Psalm: “Be filled with the Spirit as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts.”
In addition to our love of song, at MCCDC we believe that everyone has something to say. We not only believe in the “Priesthood of all Believers,” we put our belief into practice. It was a joy to have Kathleen Carey as our special guest at our recent 48th Anniversary Celebration. This Sunday, we will receive inspiration from two of our members: Robin Anderson and Lamar Jenkins. Don’t miss their sharing as two of MCCDC’s Sacred Voices.
I invite you to be ready to sing this Sunday, and ready to receive and share as we experience the Presence of God in song, prayer, Sacred Voices, and community.
