By The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster

Hildegard of Bingen says, “the sound of the Word of God created the whole world, which is our abode.” In other words, we are created by sound. We are brought into being by the voice of God. And, I would claim, we are re-made by music. Song binds us together. It renews. It carries us home.

Let us pray:

When I am down, and, o, my soul, so weary,
When troubles come, and my heart burdened be,
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
—Rolf Levland, Norwegian Composer, b. 1955

The musical gifts of this congregation unfold week after week. May this quartet by the Chang brothers remake you in God’s love.
