Like everyone else, I have my own preferences for congregational singing.
But the people of God are to come from all
If the Church is what Christ died to make her,
she will be beautifully, amazingly diverse.
Congregational singing is communal.
It is inclusive.
It is uniting.
Its goal, its dream, its aspiration is to connect
all that we are as God’s people to
all that He is.
The Church is bigger than me.
It is wonderfully vast and varied.
Father, don’t shrink her congregational song to my size.
Expand my mind and heart to
embrace everyone You embrace.
