“Why do Christians sing when they are together? The reason is, quite simply, because in singing together it is possible for them to speak and pray the same Word at the same time…They can unite in the Word.”
– – -Bonhoeffer, Life Together
Powerful words about why we sing in church.
We do not sing to bring glory to ourselves.
We do not sing out of comfort.
Rather we sing in prayer.
We sing in worship to unify our voices, prayers, and praise to God.
As we gather in church we sing to shake the trees with our one voice – to the glory of God.
